Statuesque contralto Akers once had a reputation as the epitome of the frosty, sophisticated nightclub chanteuse, a persona she spoofed in Woody Allen's The Purple Rose of Cairo; more recently, however, the ertswhile star of Broadway's Nine and Grand Hotel has emphasized a melting streak of emotion. Here she hits the Beach Café with a collection of sophisticated ditties by Great American Songbook master Cole Porter.
