CD Reviews

If youl ike June Christy & Chris Connor try Fran Warren...

"Just as June Christy came out of Stan Kenton's modern sounding band, Fran Warren came out of Claude Thornehill's very ahaed of it's time orchestra, she had two major hits during the forties with Thornehill "A Sunday Kind Of Love" and "For Heaven's Sake." This is an album with wonderful and very cool arrangements by Mel Torme's longtime arranger Marty Paich. Fran sounds cool and misty thoughout... and the song selection is mostly jazz standards. This CD comes highly recommeded to any swing era fan or jazz vocal collector. Highly Recommeded. Note: This also has the original LP cover artwork, always a plus."

"Hey There!, Here's Fran Warren. Miss Warren may not be familiar to everyone, and I am not surprised. The very first LP that ever I bought was by Fran, and since then I've never come across anything else by her, not even a track on an anthology. Amazing because Fran is a great singer. Marty Paich needs no introduction.With the sole exception of Stan 'The Man' Kenton, he was the best at writing arrangements, selecting musicians, and putting he stuff into the grooves. The guy who picked the songs did a pretty good job too. Truthfully, I have not bought this CD, and I've not heard this CD. How come?. This is that very same album that I bought all those years ago. So I'm just going to add it to my basket now!. I suggest that you do the same. And to get the Kenton reference; -locate June Christy, find Tampico, read the review, take the advice."
More Fran Warren!

"For some reason, it always surprises me to find a wonderful artist that for some reason is not as well known as they ought to be. Fran Warren is one such artist.As far as I can tell, there are only two albums of her work on CD ("Hey There" is one, "The Complete Fran Warren" being the other). While she clearly had the talent to be able to stand alongside any of the major female vocalists of the day, Warren seems to have been more or less forgotten today. Fortunately, we have "Hey There", an album that showcases Warren at the peak of her powers. From the opening track, you know you're in for a special treat. The Gershwin tunes "I Can't Get Started" and "They Can't Take That Away" are two standouts, but that isn't saying much compared to the other wonderful songs on display here. "Imagination" is possibly one of the best versions I've ever heard, and "Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered" are also winners.Hopefully more of Warren's work will be made available. Until then, you'll want to have this CD in your collection."
