CD Reviews

Berlin, Gershwin, Kern (et al) as interpreted by Frederick
Annie Van Auken | Planet Earth | 07/21/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"A two-page essay within ASV's LET'S FACE THE MUSIC AND DANCE is primarily an admiration of the Ginger Rogers/Fred Astaire film canon. The CD itself is sectioned by composer. AAD transfers of motion picture soundtracks are generally decent. Some reveal a bit of background noise or faint whooshing. Edit fade-ins or outs are rare. Light filtering is used but not on most tracks.
