Mark Hartman

By Fredric Dannen Mark Hartman, a pianist, singer, composer, conductor, arranger, and coach working on and off-Broadway, has such a long resume of accomplishments that one wonders if he has ever taken a day off in the past three decades.

In an Era of Musical Specialists, Multi-Instrumentalist David Mendoza Keeps Up a Dying Art

David Mendoza

By Tere Urtusastegui At first glance, Carole King and Bob Dylan might not seem all that alike: Dylan, called “the voice of his generation,” ignited the 1960s with his political songs that inspired the burgeoning counterculture.
