Synopsis

Amazon.com
Grande dame of cabaret Julie Wilson finds an ideal foil in the music of Stephen Sondheim, whose brilliant musicals have included some outstanding songs for older women: "I Never Do Anything Twice," "Send in the Clowns," "The Ladies Who Lunch," and almost all of Follies (notably absent is "Liaisons"). Yet Wilson can also do justice to the ode to young love, "Love I Hear," from A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. Throughout, pianist William Roy provides excellent support, including occasional vocal contributions. It's an excellent start to a series of composer songbooks Wilson has recorded for DRG. --David Horiuchi
 

CD Reviews

Julie Wilson is a living legend
06/08/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Ms. Wilson epitomizes half a century of American cabaret to a degree that is unmatched by no other. Her rendition of Sondheim's songs not only gives tribute to a great American songwriter that comes almost two generations after her, but it also showcases the originality and personality of the performer. This album is certainly not for those who are looking for run-of-the mill renditions of Sondheim. Ms. Wilson's individuality comes through powerfully in this album, matched only by Sondheim's lyrics. A great album!"
