Format: Audio CD
Few people who are entranced by the cabaret style of song communication will fail to recognize veteran singer Marlene Ver Planck, a gifted stylist who can move comfortably from languid ballads, to upbeat tongue in cheek snappy songs, to belting the songs of passion. Her voice is smooth, right in the center of the pitch, technically perfect - and yet what happens when she sings is more of that old quality of singing that is all about communication of the melody and lyrics that have made these songs she has selected on this her 22nd CD worthy of the classification of `standards'.

Most of the backgrounds here are supplied by her pianist Mike Renzi but her songs here are shared by the talents of Mike Renzi, piano, Houston Person, tenor sax, Claudio Roditi, flugle horn, Tedd Firth, keyboards, Jay Leonhart and Boots Maleson, bass, and Ron Vincent, drums.


And to get down to the music and the composers, the following are here offered:

I WISH I KNEW (Harry Warren, Mack Gordon)
WITCHCRAFT (Cy Coleman, Carolyn Leigh)
MY DREAM IS YOURS (Harry Warren, Harry Blaine)
LOVE DANCE (Ivan Linz, Paul Williams)
I ONLY HAVE EYES FOR YOU (Harry Warren, Al Dubin)
IT AMAZES ME (Cy Coleman, Carolyn Leigh)
BABY DREAM YOUR DREAM (Cy Coleman, Dorothy Fields)
THERE WILL NEVER BE ANOTHER YOU (Harry Warren, Mack Gordon)
THE RULES OF THE ROAD (Cy Coleman, Carolyn Leigh)
I'M GONNA LAUGH YOU RIGHT OUR OF MY LIFE (Cy Coleman, Joseph A. McCarthy)
I WALK A LITTLE FASTER (Cy Coleman, Carolyn Leigh)
LISTEN TO THE PIANO MAN (Ronnie Whyte)
WHY TRY TO CHANGE ME NOW (Cy Coleman, Joseph A. McCarthy)
YOU FASCINATE ME SO (Cy Coleman, Carolyn Leigh)
WHY WAS I THINKING OF SPRINGTIME (Billy VerPlanck, Leon Nock)

So sit back, get nostalgic, enjoy, and you'll understand why the New York Times stated `.she may be the most accomplished interpreter of popular material performing today'! Grady Harp, June 13

There is nothing of nostalgia in this work of art. The team of the late Billy Ver Planck as arranger
And the indescribable Marlene Ver Planck as interpreter prove beyond a doubt that the music we love so so well is still a powerful and living force. I have been fortunate enough to hear her along with her world class sidemen perform several of these songs live. The combination of her talent, experience and love made it an event I will remember always. By the way this is a great CD. Billy and Marlene's take on "I only have eyes for you" is along with the Flamingos the 2 best I have heard.

Marlene is a long time gifted vocalist and pianist and this recording highlights her numerous skills. As important, her 'sidemen' are of the same caliber. The song selection is excellent and nostalgic.
