Joey McIntyre's song on a Lloyd Webber Tribute CD by Kritzerland

Kritzerland is reaching into the vaults of Los Angeles’ S.T.A.G.E. charitable organization for three star-filled releases celebrating composers who need no introduction: Burt Bacharach, Stephen Sondheim and Andrew Lloyd Webber.  These live concert recordings feature renowned artists from the worlds of pop (Melissa Manchester, Stephen Bishop) and jazz (Dave Koz, Ann Hampton Callaway) plus stars from stage, screen and television (Tyne Daly, Felicity Huffman, Len Cariou, Charlotte Rae, Donna McKechnie) and even some rather unexpected performers (Rip Taylor, Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry), all tackling selections from these deep songbooks.  The Lloyd Webber and Sondheim tributes are both 2-CD sets, while the Bacharach is a single disc.  A portion of the proceeds from all three albums will be allocated to AIDS Project L.A. and other AIDS organizations.
The albums are scheduled to ship the fourth week in May, but pre-orders will likely be mailed several weeks earlier as per Kritzerland’s custom.  Hit the jump for a look at each of this trio of recordings, including full track listings and pre-order links!
The earliest of the three concerts hails from 2004, and celebrates the music of Andrew Lloyd Webber, currently represented in New York with three musicals thanks to the recent hit revivals of Evita and Jesus Christ Superstar plus the longest-running Broadway musical of all time with The Phantom of the Opera.  Songs from all three of those musicals can be heard on The Perfect Year: The Music of Andrew Lloyd Webber.  The album is roughly sequenced as mini-suites of Lloyd Webber’s most famous musicals, opening with a quartet of songs from Superstar and ending with another four from Phantom.  In between you’ll hear cuts from Lloyd Webber’s other musicals such as Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Evita, Song and Dance, Jeeves, Starlight Express and Cats, performed by an eclectic array of singers including Ken Page (original cast member of Cats), Mary Jo Catlett (2 Broke Girls, Desperate Housewives), Betty Garrett (Laverne and Shirley, On the Town), Marissa Jaret Winokur (Hairspray), Tyne Daly and former New Kid on the Block Joey McIntyre.  Daly tackles the dramatic “If This is What We’re Fighting For” from the 2000 West End musical The Beautiful Game.
