CD Reviews

A great album by a great singer
A Listener | Los Angeles, CA | 02/15/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album pairs a great singer with great songs. Johnny Mercer was one of the finest lyricists during the golden age of American popular song, and Marlene Ver Plank is one of the finest interpreters of those songs. The songs, from "I Remember You" (From a movie made before Pearl Harbor, but shown after, "The Fleet's In"), to "Early Autumn" (which in the instrumental version by Woody Herman's band made a star of his teen-age tenor sax soloist, Stan Getz), are all first rate. Ms. Ver Plank treats them with the respect they deserve, which is to say, the tempos and emotional tone of the performances are at one with the melodies and the sentiments of the lyrics. Highly recommended!"
