The most beautiful of Cleo's recorded music

"I was a fan from the word go, or rather when she set her foot on American soil. I have seen her live many times at Wolftrap near DC and she always amazes me with her talent. The fluidness of this music and he handling that CLeo gives this music are little slices of heaven. She can be brassy, or breathy, warm or clipped. Either way she has class and talent. One of the things I like especially about Cleo is that she knows how to handle a song, or the approach to take, it is always right on que. I have even met the lady and she is gracious. I believe her recording of Sometimes When We Touch, makes other versions, including the one who made it famous, seem small and dated. After Cleo is through with that song, it is an instant classic. Buy the album, if you love CLeo, you will adore this CD. Now on the other hand if you are not familiar with Cleo and need to get your feet wet first, BUY THIS CD. Its great for new commers. Trust me, it will stay in your CD tray for a long time."
A DIFFERENT CLEO / / /

"This album is beatiful music...the jazz element is not very evident in these arrangements. DRIFTING, DREAMING is written by Eric Satie, HOW, WHEN, WHERE is the famous Pachebel Cannon. James toots his flute on THE FLUTERS BALL and Galway and Laine soar on LO,HOW THE GENTLE LARK. ANYONE CAN WHISTLE is a Sondheim classic. This is a different album but a very worthwhile one to listen to.Check out CLEO LAINE and her husband John Dankworth."
Cleo's And Galway Are A Wonderful Blend!

"I've been a fan of Cleo Laine's for a long time. This teaming with James Galway is fantastic. The choice of songs if perfect for the two of them and arrangements by John Dankworth (Dame Cleo's husband) are smooth and lend themselves to Galway's dancing flute. Favorite cuts of mine are "Skylark", John Denver's composition "Like A Sad Song", "Drifting & Dreaming" and the title cut "Sometimes When We Touch". I'm a songwriter/singer and I wish Dame Cleo would sing one of mine-she's outstanding!"
