Product Description

On and off Broadway, on concert stages and in cabarets, Melissa Errico has made standing ovations and critical acclaim almost a matter of routine. She has been lauded as "the voice of enchantment (New York Times) and "seductive, smart and sexy" (Washington Post). She has triumphed at New York's most prestigious theaters, the Kennedy Center, the Hollywood Bowl and other celebrated venues, was nominated for a best actress Tony for the Michel Legrand-scored musical Amour, and has sung lead roles in Anna Karenina, Les Miserables, My Fair Lady and other productions along the Great White Way. But there was one role she had never played out fully in song - for one of the most gifted musical actresses of her generation, perhaps the most difficult she had ever attempted. With Lullabies & Wildflowers, her latest album and first release in conjunction with Velour Music Group, Ms. Errico acknowledges and embraces that new audience - women who, like her, have undergone the exhilaration and joys of becoming mothers - and assumes the role, for the first time, of playing herself, fully, fearlessly, and irresistibly. With the birth of her daughter Victoria in 2006, Ms. Errico found that her dedication to the theater hadn't prepared her for the drama of bringing a new life into the world. Universal though it is, she understood that this journey is private even as it invites opening to others. This enlightenment animates Lullabies & Wildflowers. Its songs span a wide range: playful and winsome on "Someone to Watch over Me," intimate and loving on "Mockingbird," soothing yet stirring on "Hushabye," upbeat and optimistic on "Wildflowers," sensual and sexy on "Wind Says Shhh." The feelings borne through Ms. Errico's distinctive vocals and Rob Mathes' spare but artful arrangements are as varied as those of women who have made the passage into motherhood.

Right up there with my other favorite lullaby album, Now the Day Is Over, this is just a wonderful grouping of songs for babies and children.
Holly Lewis
On her second album of jazz and folk-pop material, Melissa again makes very effective use of her exceptionally beautiful voice.

On her second album of jazz and folk-pop material, Melissa again makes very effective use of her exceptionally beautiful voice. The theme of "Lullabies & Wildflowers" is motherhood. and so the album was deliberately released shortly before Mother's Day. While all of the music on this new CD is appropriate for children (yes, it does include lullabies), there is also much that their parents will find very enjoyable. I was especially impressed by a rendition of Gershwin's "Someone To Watch Over Me" that ranks among the best I've had the pleasure to hear. In addition, there is a version of the Beatles' "Goodnight" that includes a guitar solo that manages to be both economical and gorgeous at the same time. But perhaps my favorite song on the album is an uptempo country-flavored arrangement of Tom Petty's "Wildflowers" that is reminiscent of Judy Collins' Someday Soon" as well as some of the material on Norah Jones' "Feels Like Home" CD.
Highly recommended, particularly for fans of Jones, Collins, Katie Melua, and Erin Bode.

I first heard tracks from this Cd on the Joey Reynolds Show heard on WOR 710AM in NYC last month. Melissa has a beautiful voice ( think Judy Collins ) and has put together a great backing group of musicians that includes her brother. I gave a copy to my daughter-in-law to play at bedtime for my 2 year-old granddaughter. She loved it and my granddaughter fell asleep listening to it. Too many Cds that are aimed to include young children are unlistenable, have limited musicianship, and are repetitive. This is just the opposite. I have listened to Cd many times and find it relaxing and beautiful.

I love this CD. Very dreamlike, mellow and Jazzy. When I bought it I thought that
it was going to be songs for me to learn to sing to my baby. But they are better
heard on the CD as Melissa's voice is gorgeous. Just put it on and get ready to
be lulled into a dreamy world.

This is my favorite CD for the boys to listen to at night. Both the four year old and the two year old love it. Lullaby perfection.
