A swinging fixture of the cabaret world, Ann Hampton Callaway has also branched out into jazz and TV theme songs (The Nanny). She has a reassuringly mellow way with the standards, sung in a wry, coffee-voiced contralto. This week at Birdland, she traverses a collection of songs about how people connect with the world.
