Gorgeous to look at, with a magical voice to match, she had the audience at her entrance with “It’s a Beautiful Day.

” She than took us on a lovely trip through The Beatles, Leonard Bernstein, Sergio Mendes, and the Bergmans, to name just a few in her hour-long set. Backed by Alex Rybeck on piano, Julie Jacobs on percussion and Paul Shewchuk on bass, Kind was able to pull off the near impossible: an intimacy that was warmly welcomed due to an adorable, sweet, slightly edgy personality, coupled with the confidence of a seasoned performer who knows where her gifts are.

So many highlights: “I Can Cook Too”; “All That Jazz”; “It Only Takes a Moment”; encoring with “Can You Read My Mind?” Kind showed a versatility of emotion, insight, and a superb understanding of everything she was enchanting us with.

She is only there through January 31st. What can I say? “Get thee to…The Royal Room!”
