Part sex kitten, part All-American girl, Jane Krakowski is 100 percent adorable-a quality that's fully evident throughout her debut solo DRG recording: Live at Feinstein's at The Regency Hotel. Indeed, Krakowski's patented brand of va-va-vroom coupled with vulnerability has kept her in good stead for over 20 years from her Broadway triumphs in Grand Hotel and Nine (which earned her a Tony Award) to her popular TV roles in Ally McBeal and her current show, 30 Rock (for which she received a 2009 Emmy Award nomination)- and it's a smart move for her to capitalize on it for her official debut album which was recorded in October, 2009. Not content with singing predictable standards, although the "live" recording has it's fair share of stop the show hits, Krakowski's act includes a couple of cabaret detours: the Sesame Street favorite "Rubber Ducky" and an offbeat "drug medley" of "When I Get Low I Get High" and "Wacky Dust." She also includes a contemporary twist with a brilliantly updated version of Rodgers & Hart's "Zip" called "Tweet" with special lyrics by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman.
