CD Reviews

A Beautiful Interpretation of Kern's Works
Zal Uyoot | Surrey (BC) Canada | 05/10/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Kern is a very conservative musicwriter and wouldn't be pleased if his work is given a very experimental treatment. For this, Ms. Stewart has abided to that dictum and the result is simply undiluted Kern melodies. Sandy's velvety voice and with Dick Hyman accompanying her on the piano, the result is simply thrilling!

All the 21 songs (6 are part of a 2-parts medley) are all familiar to anyone who knows Kern although it would be my first time to hear Day Dreaming penned by Gus Khan and Dorothy Field's How'd You Like To Spoon With Me. As always, Kern came up with beautiful melodies even to such rarely heard compositions. This is one of the best Kern Songbook - the other one would be Margaret Whiting but I would say this one is more polished. Ella Fitzgerald recorded one but it pales in comparison with her other songbooks. Elizabeth Welch did an exceptional recording under a British label. They all have their own qualities but Ms. Stewart did a remarkable compilation of Kern's greatest in an intimate setting. This is a 4.5 stars actually!

Too bad, I don't see much of her recordings to discover more."
