CD Reviews

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Barbara Cook brings all her subtle artistry to bear on this album of Dorothy Fields songs. Barbara's attention to the nuances in Fields' witty, sexy lyrics is quite remarkable. One of the many highlights is an aching version of "Make The Man Love Me", a gorgeous Arthur Scwartz melody with one of Fields' most heartbreaking lyrics; unrequited love at its most moving. Barbara's wonderful rendition of "I Must Have That Man" also proves she has no equal in this department. There is also a wonderfully romantic "I'm In The Mood For Love" (with a sensuous orchestral backing) and the crystalline quality of "April Snow" is extremely poignant. On the upbeat side, we have a definitive "Sunny Side Of The Street", turning this jazz standard into a theatrical statement. Every song is a winner: Fields and Cook (and, of course, the wonderful Wally Harper) are an extremely happy team."

"This album is filled with amazing renditions of songs with lyrics by the great Dorothy Fields. Songs filled with longing and heartache, especially "April Snow" and "Make the Man Love Me"--achingly beautiful. Add to that a swinging version of "Sunny Side of the Street," Wally Harper's amazing accompianment and you've got one great album."

"I was very pleased to get this CD as I was a big fan of the original release on cassette and had long ago lost it. It is a wonderful addition to my Cook library. She is like no other performer and why she has not yet received a Kennedy Center Honor is beyond me. She is a major and uniquely American talent."
