Carolyn Dorfman’s PRIMA! celebrates the 5-decade career and range of the inimitable Louis Prima. Through the use of full songs including the iconic “Sing Sing Sing” and “Jump Jive and Wail” and musical collage, Dorfman explores the full, driving, and buoyant sound of Louis Prima and his band. Dorfman, too, features the powerful, virtuosic, and expressive voices of Prima’s female lead singers, Gia Maione Prima and Keely Smith in such delights as “I Want You To Be My Baby,” “Undecided,”and “I’ve Got You Under My Skin.” It is the strength, nuance, and playful, yet firm, dialogue and banter of these women with Prima that inspires Dorfman most. PRIMA! will take you on a joyous ride through time, love, relationship, and connection.
