5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding tribute to Richard Rodgers, 27 Dec. 2003
This review is from: In Love Again (Audio CD)
American-born but British-based Stacey does it again with this mellow but classy collection of songs composed by Richard Rodgers in collaboration with either with Lorenz Hart or Oscar Hammerstein. The songs are a mix of the famous and the obscure.
Stacey selected two songs each from South Pacific (I'm gonna wash that man right outta my hair, Bali Ha'i) and A Connecticut Yankee (Thou swell, My heart stood still). Other shows represented here, but just by one song each, are The king and I (Shall we dance), Pal Joey (Bewitched bothered and bewildered), Higher and higher (It never entered my mind), State fair (It might as well be Spring), Jupiter (Nobody's heart belongs to me), The boys from Syracuse (This can't be love), Mississippi (It's easy to remember) and The Garrick Gaities (Manhattan).
As a fan of the Great American Songbook, I have heard some of these songs in many different versions, but Stacey always does justice to the songs while interpreting them in her own way.
Stacey is one of the biggest names in British jazz and this album clearly shows why. If you enjoy modern recordings of the Great American Songbook, you'll love Stacey's music.
