TOP 500 REVIEWERon 12 September 2012
This was the last project that Nelson Riddle was able to complete in 1985 with New Zealand opera star Kiri Te Kanawa before his death. Provided you like Kiri's voice, I think she does a good job singing popular ballads and Nelson's arrangements are as inventive as ever. He continues in somewhat the same vein as the arrangements he did for the trio of LPs that he made with pop singer Linda Ronstadt.

Here Kiri sings 12 songs by some of the greatest of American popular composers and lyricists of the 20th century. The title track is from Irving Berlin, and on other tracks we have Kurt Weill (`Speak low'), Rodgers and Hart (`I didn't know what time it was'), Rodgers and Hammerstein (`it might as well be string'), Cole Porter (`True love') and others of equal greatness. This is an album I treasured on LP and now I play it just as much on CD.

A lovely collection of American standards by Te Kanawa and Nelson Riddle, tasteful jazz-inspired arrangements with Kiri Te Kanawa singing in her natural voice. A revelation and a treat. The songs 'Blue Skies' and 'How High the Moon' stand out.
