"I never heard of Portia Nelson until I found this CD about two years ago (the original albums were recorded in the early to mid-1950s, before I was even born). Although Portia was an accomplished composer ("Sunday in New York"), these 24 songs (some timeless standards, others somewhat obscure) were perfect for her marvelous soprano range. The only instrumental accompaniment needed for these albums was lovingly provided by Norman Paris (of "I've Got a Secret" fame) and his trio (piano/celeste/accordion, bass, and guitar). Norman was a marvelously gifted musician and arranger, and put great loving care into his arrangements, keeping Portia's voice as the focal point.Sadly, I found out that Portia passed on some time ago, but we are fortunate to have her music around for years to come."
