Ann Hampton Callaway wrote and sang the theme song for The Nanny. But don’t hold that against her. She was also nominated for a Tony award (for Swing!), Barbra Streisand is a huge fan, and she’s a favorite among Manhattan clubgoers. On her new album, Blues in the Night, Callaway sings a bunch of originals and torch-song classics by Cole Porter and Johnny Mercer. Ostensibly, it’s a tribute to her hometown of Chicago. But because Callaway’s deep, rich voice is closer to a jazz singer’s than a bluesman’s, the album ends up a late-night take on sophisticated cocktail jazz.
