A different kind of Marian McPartland recording

"If you are a fan of Marian McPartland you know that most of her recordings are solo, or with a trio she has used for decades. Her arrangemnts often take one "out of the Box" for short periods of time, but never leave you there for long. Some may describe this album as to Commercial. The backup is a group including violins and has arrangements that are more standard than usual and not many times does she leave the script. On the other hand the music is relaxing and delightful and still has a lot of the spirit we expect from wonderful woman. I bought the album after hearing a couple of cuts because the music is great and it is different from the normal Marian McPartland experience."
