Imaginitive arrangements but maybe a bit one paced,

This review is from: In Love Again (Audio CD)
A selection of Richard Rodgers' songs which varies from the very familiar to the less well known. It is perhaps a pity that the pace of the album is not quite as variable. Huge fan that I am of SK, I've got to say that the album lacks variety in terms of pace. Subsequently it fades a bit into the wallpaper before you get to the end. Each track on its own is beautifully arranged and crafted and the musicianship as usual can't be faulted but you just long for something a bit more up-tempo to maintain your interest from start to finish.
Having said that, the high points are highlights indeed and the opening track 'Shall We Dance' is quirky and wonderful. I still commend the album to Amazon customers, it's just that you may find yourself listening to it in short bursts rather than in its entirety at one sitting.
