Editorial Reviews

Thirty-five years ago, I met Johnny Mercer when he was a guest
on a local television show. I was the piano player in the band,
and he very graciously asked where he might come and hear
us later. I gave him the address of a club where my trio was
playing, and later that night he and his dinner companions
came in. He and I wound up the evening sitting on the piano
bench playing "Do you remember this one... singing Mercer
tunes into the wee small hours. That evening is a favorite
memory of mine, and I'm honored to be recording some of his
wonderful music at last. Johnny Mercer was, and will continue
to be, everybody's 'Huckleberry Friend'. Thanks, John

Now under a new banner of Village Square Records, Beegie Adair continues to be the master of interpretation of the composers pen ~ her latest release "Days of Wine and Roses:Song of Johnny Mercer" is joined by Roger Spencer (bassist) and Chris Brown (drummer) ~ as they perform thirteen great Mercer standards. Light jazz arrangements of classic Johnny Mercer hits are presented with the signature and style we've come to love.
One can hardly pick a stand out, entire compilation draws on slow tempos with blends of original sentiment and gorgeous melodies ~ give a listen to the opening cue "DAYS OF WINE AND ROSES" and then "MOON RIVER", both songs in collaboration with Henry Mancini, have stood the test of time and will go on forever ~ "LAURA", the film-noir era gave us and starred Gene Tierney whose portrait on the wall stays with you the entire film, Beegie's performance on this track is simply haunting ~ "SKYLARK", all time favorite for many vocalist such as Ella Fitzgerald, but this arrangement from Adair serves up an inimitable instrumental style that completely gets under your skin and you're loving every minute of it.
This album plays like fine wine and flows very easily on the ears ~ once again Jack Jezzro (producer) comes through with a must have for all music lovers and fans of Beegie. Arrangements take on many moods with the same sensitivity and tender loving care as her previous albums...gotta love it!

Good grief - why are there only two (other) reviews of this incredible CD? Don't you folks know this woman is at the top of the charts as an American jazz pianist and her CD's sell fast! I have over five of them and although my favorite is "I'll Take Romance", because it is backed up by a full luscious orchestra, this is a terrific compilation of Johnny Mercer songs such as "Moon River", "Days of Wine and Roses", and the always haunting "Laura". Ms. Adair is an extremely accomplished musician whose interpretation of all these classics stays true to form so you can thoroughly enjoy the original melody without it getting lost in some ghastly abstract maze of artistic over achievement. She and her trio stay on course and always honor the original melody, which I appreciate very much. This CD is another pure gold Beegie Adair 5-star winner for your listening pleasure. If you love soft jazz, it doesn't get better than this! Buy it....now.

If you like relaxing, but not boring, soft jazz, you will like this CD. Just drums, base, and piano.I really liked Autumn Leaves with a slow rhumba rhythm. All songs are pretty old school, but the style is more modern. I also loved the selections, but I love music from the Sinatra era. I also like B.A.'s styling--not excessively florid. Hope you like it as much as I.

Beegie Adair and her trio keep producing impeccable productions. I've been waiting for this tribute to Mercer, including Mancini's music, for a couple of years. This is my latest purchase of Beegie's many discs produced in the last few years, and it doesn't get any better. The album is done with the usual good taste, wonderful arrangements, excellent reproduction, and superb musicianship. The trio sounds fantastic on Days of Wine and Roses and Moon River, but then again all the renditions are great. This is a player who seems to be the best kept secret in jazz. Take it from me, a fan who has all of Beegie's albums, you will enjoy this disc or any other of Beegie's CD issues.

Reading through some other comments, I'd like to throw in my own three cents. Beegie Adair should indeed be considered among the short list of great jazz pianists. Her recordings are one thing. Here LIVE PERFORMANCES are quite another.

On Days of Wine & Roses, Beegie Adair and her trio present the great Johnny Mercer songs of romance in a, yes, "romantic" and "easy on the ears" format. Intentionally created for dinners, candlelight moments, and those oh-so-grand times of canoodling with your heartmate.

This in no way dismisses her from inclusion among Bill Evans, George Shearing, Erroll Garner, Oscar Peterson, Tommy Flanagan, Gene Harris, et al. Still a sceptic? Go see her live concerts. I've attended dozens of them, and I have every single recording she has made (23 to date).

Again, her recordings are great, no doubt. Her live performances are beyond great. Hear for yourself.

Who doesn't love the songs of Johnny Mercer? This version, played by the incomparable Beegie Adair, is one of my favourites to play in the car because it features such fabulous sing along songs such as Days of Wine and Roses; Something's Got to Give; Accentuate the Positive; That Old Black Magic and nine others which absolutely demand that you sing along with them, and, with such marvellous accompaniment, makes everyone sound like a star! I can personally guarantee that you won't be disappointed when you add this CD to your collection.

All of Beegie's cds are terrific and this one is just as good if not better than her others. Classy, Elegant, and Swinging...
