CD Reviews

A Relative Point of View
Patricia B. Shirley | Bayside, WI United States | 03/01/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Though you have only one of these available, the person who gets it will be in for quite a treat. As I have said,this has been a love affair of long-standing, so much so, that I married his brother 37+ years ago!! This man is a genius (Dr. Shirley, I mean...but his brother's no dummy, either (look who he married!)
Each time I hear one of his pieces, it's new, fresh and absolutely scintillating!You must check out the newest CD..."Home With Don Shirley". Truly brilliant and another statement of his genius."
Outstanding, As Usual
G. Greene | 03/03/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"There wasn't any information on Amazon about this album when I bought it, other than the title and the performer, Don Shirley. For me, the latter information is sufficient. As usual, Shirley brings his inimitable style to whatever he does. In this case, he is magnificently complimented by outstanding cello and bass work (James Boyd, Juri Taht, and Kenneth Fricker) in this 1972 release. As usual, the music is interpreted in an entirely new and amazing way. As usual, you will realize that you've never really heard this music before.Following are the selections:1. The Warning
2. Carry Me Back to Old Virginny
3. Bridge over Troubled Waters
4. The Shadow of your Smile
5. Alfie
6. Gershwin Medley: My Man's Gone Now/I Got Plenty o' Nuttin'/It Ain't Necessarily So/Stawberry Woman/Summertime/Oh Bess, Where's my Bess/I Loves You Porgy/Bess You Is my Woman Now/Clara, Clara
7. By the Time I Get to Phoenix"
