"I bought this disc a decade ago and was very pleasantly surprised to rediscover it a few days ago during a ruthless triage of my CD collection. Hendricks' homage to Disney is a keeper. Here's why: 1) the orchestration is unashamedly retro, honoring vintage '40s and '50s film scoring (think Steiner, Korngold, Hermann), rendered in a gorgeous acoustic ambiance; 2)okay: the musical values are dicey--this isn't Schoenberg--but for a certain demographic in the baby boomer generation this is a completely satisfying portion of comfort food, not least because this recording captures Barbara Hendricks in what must surely be one of the most complete documents of Hendricks' beguiling sound (at its glorious peak) and interpretive wit."
