CD Reviews

Master Vocal, Master Piano Command - What Else to Say
Carlos from Rio | Rio de Janeiro, RJ Brazil | 07/10/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"... OK, the repertoire is II War songs, a brilliant idea possibly credited to Tormé. This is a live recording with a beautiful opening by George Shearing playing "Lili Marlene" in a sensitive way that I presume must have shocked the audience due to their complete silence and reverence and to Shearing's tenderness. Don't lose the chance to listen to it."
A nostalgic mix of fun and romance
Carlos from Rio | 06/09/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Torme and Shearing team up to present the best of the songs of the World War II era. They emphasize romantic ballads, with some lighter songs (e.g. "This is the Army") added for fun. This listener, born nine years after the war ended, wanted to go and volunteer at the nearest Stage Door Canteen after hearing this recording for the first time. It's that real, that moving, that good."

"I found this disk brilliant and was delighted when i was able to obtain it through amazon. i first heard it on the Russell DAVIES SHOW on BBC radio two and was amazed at how these two great tunesmiths work so well together. Great melodies too from a sad time in our history."
