If ya love the Gershwins....

"This CD has music that might seem a little cliche to the showtune genre if you haven't seen the musical. There are some people though who absoulutely loooove that. But after you actually see the energy in the tap dancing and the choreography of the show, the music on the CD is able to vividly repaint the images in your mind. So if ya love showtunes or have seen the musical, this CD is definitely a good buy for you."
Love these songs!

"I received this album about 15 years ago, listened to it for a few years and then managed to lose it in one of my many moves. The songs have stayed with me, though, and I still sing them when I'm in that singin' mood. Little Jazz Bird is my infant son's favorite song (and guaranteed to calm him down when fussy). I just love the music. I was pleasantly surprised to find that Twiggy could sing (and in a range that I can sing along with). I never saw the play, but I loved the music all the same."
Twiggy Lawson and Tommy Tune, a winning combo

"MY ONE AND ONLY features a Tony-winning performance from Tommy Tune with Twiggy Lawson singing the timeless standards of George and Ira Gershwin. 10 years later, another musical featuring Gershwin material would open on Broadway, CRAZY YOUR YOU, and would prove to be more successful. Still, MY ONE AND ONLY is an enjoyable musical and worthwhile cast album.
True, Twiggy is a less-than-thrilling singer; still she has a feeling for the material and sings with a verve and spirit which makes up for her technical shortcomings. Tommy Tune is fine, but always comes across better in person than on disc. Standout numbers include "How Long Has This Been Going On?", "S'Wonderful", "He Loves and She Loves" and "I Can't Be Bothered Now".
MY ONE AND ONLY lost out on the Best Musical Tony to CATS, and Twiggy lost out on the Best Actress Tony to Natalia Makarova (for the revival of ON YOUR TOES)."
