Life Goes On, but not without New Words.

"Everytime I listen to New Words, I can't decide whether its the singer here that is so good, or the songwriters. I'll just have to conclude that both are on equally high levels, and what a high level that is! Most of the songs have 'standards' written all over them, and Marcovicci milks every bit of quality out of them - she certainly knows what exactly makes a good song. The high point for me is 'Life Goes On', but its not to say that the rest of the album is not as impressive, far from it. 'My Man's Riding in the Moonlight', with its intoxicating violin and sensuous singing is just so unforgettable. The title song itself is another masterpiece. The lyrics for 'Full Moon at Half Price' is as clever as anything by Ira or Yip. And after all these passions, heartbreaks, lessons learned, falling in and out of love, and wise words, she ends with 'things are just where they should be... tonight', and we fall in love all over again. My sincere thanks to you, Andrea. love, Dennis"
Good singer, great songs.

"I adore this album. It's such a pleasure to hear a cabaret singer perform something that was written in my lifetime. Ms. Marcovicci should be lauded for giving modern songwriters a chance to be heard. I have had this recording for 2 or 3 years now, and I keep coming back to it. It has now made it into my "If I were on a desert island and could only have 10 CDs" list. I'm not used to actually listening to the words on most CDs because the song writing is so terrible. But these folks know how to craft a song, not just bang out a pop tune. Now I love pop as much as the next person, but this record is a lovely alternative to the sameness of radio-pop."

"I have never had the pleasure of hearing A.M. live, and I had been really disappointed by the "Live from London" disc. But this is wonderful. Phrasing, energy, tone, pacing -- a great listen."
