The subtitle of this album is Classic Movie Songs of the Forties, and cabaret veteran Mary Cleere Haran winds her way through many of the most memorable songs of the era, including "That Old Black Magic," "I Remember You," and Judy Garland's "The Boy Next Door" and "On the Atchison, Topeka and the Santa Fe," as well as the less familiar Burke-Van Heusen "Sleighride in July." Pianist Fred Hersch leads a gently swinging trio in this lovely tribute to a time gone by. --David Horiuchi

Good stuff Mary, we miss you but your legacy lives on.

"Obviously a couple of these reviewers have no idea what they are talking about, or simply like only what they know. What I love about Mary Cleere Haran, besides that sultry voice, is that she deftly mixes well-known songs on this disc (i.e. "The Boy Next Door" and "The Atchison, Topeka, and the Santa Fe") with obscure pieces. I don't want to hear artists repeat what everyone else is doing. Mary Cleere Haran's choice of material is impeccable, and her singing a thing of beauty to the ears."

"I have all of Mary Cleere Haran's CDs and this is by far the best, though her salute to Lorenz Hart is also fine. Her choice of Hollywood songs, not all of them recorded very often these days, is exquisite. The piano work by Fred Hirsch is wonderful."
