In her third visit to Feinstein’s, Linda Eder delivers a perfectly satisfying, Frank Wildhorn-heavy hour of songs mixing pop and Broadway. Singer, whose career began as a 12-week winner on “Star Search” and includes but one Broadway credit, clearly knows how to deliver a song. Evening, though, was more admirable than exciting.

A singer of power ballads with extravagant vocal gifts, Eder is always proficient, always likable, and pretty much charming throughout. The show peaked with a soaring rendition of Irving Berlin’s “Blue Skies.” An extra special bonus, at the opening performance at least, was a guest appearance by host Michael Feinstein. The two, who have been touring together, teamed for the high spot of the set, Henry Mancini and Leslie Bricusse’s “Two for the Road.”

Songs are a grab bag of personal favorites, assembled in part — Eder tells her audience — “by pulling your requests off the Internet.” That means five by Wildhorn, along with typical cabaret affair (“The Best Is Yet to Come,” “Just in Time,” “The Man I Love”). The five-piece band features some very nice playing by David Mann on sax, including a refreshing challenge duet with Eder on “On the Street Where You Live.” The synthesized strings, though, sound — well, synthesized.
