This album was recorded over a year ago, and Fynsworth Alley has been promising it for months, constantly pushing back the date. But now that it is finally out, it is more than worth the wait. If you have heard Barrett's previous Kander and Ebb Album, or heard him on the cast albums of Dance a Little Closer, Brigadoon, Grand Hotel, etc., you know already that he is one of the greatest theatre performs around. He sings and acts each song on this album to perfection. And the choice of songs will surprise anyone who knows Lerner only from Camelot and My Fair Lady. There are songs here with music by Kurt Weill, John Barry, Charles Strouse, and Burton Lane, as well as Friedrich Loewe. Two songs from the seldom-heard score to Lolita, My Love hilite the album, as well as a duet with Lauren Bacall that you will find yourself playing over and over. The first track is the best version of "Come Back to Me" from On a Clear Day that I have ever heard. Although Fynsworth Alley has been promising a bonus track if you buy from their website, it seems that all pressings contain all the tracks recorded. Let us hope that the label will continue in the direction set by this album and their earlier releases, rather than trying for the generic pop dance fans that they have been targeting with the Matt Zarley album. A Brent Barrett album a year would be good, if some other label doesn't snap him up after hearing this one.

This CD serves Brent Barrett well, allowing him to move from soft and sensual to wild and hammy to pensively melodic. Most of the songs here you won't know, as Brent wisely eschews the well-known (no CAMELOT songs here) for the obscure songs just waiting to be discovered. Gems such as the jaunty-'til-it's-almost-over-the-top "Headin' for New Orleans" from the unproduced HUCKLEBERRY FINN, and the stunning songs "Anyone Who Loves" and "There's Always One You Can't Forget" (both from DANCE A LITTLE CLOSER) show a virtuoso at his peak, emotionally and musically.
Of course, the familiar are here too, with a blazing version of "They Call the Wind Mariah," and a delightful "I Remember it Well" with the legendary Lauren Bacall, combined with the sweet "You Haven't Changed at all."
Musically Brent is near perfection, but what amazes is the intelligence behind his approach to all this music (actually, not so amazing, as anyone who has seen Brent perform live knows.) This is certainly not a run-of-the-mill CD put out by someone with a cavalier approach to the music of Broadway (I won't name names here!) but a thoughtful, romantic and scintillating blend of lovely songs old and new.

Alan Jay Lerner wrote great lyrics that were more complex than most lyicist's. It is great to have a whole album sung by a great singer, Brett Barrett. One of my favorite songs is SHE WASN'T YOU from ON A CLEAR DAY YOU CAN SEE FOREVER. I don't know why it did not become more popular. There are songs that did not make it to show albums. This is a very enjoyable and relaxing album.

Since the release of this wonderous collection of classic songs and peerless performances I have come to realize that Brent Barrett is the finest male vocalist on the planet but for some strange reason the shallow music industries best kept secret...opening with a very unique original version of the done to death "Come Back To Me", this great singer makes this song fresh and exciting and flows into a glorious "In The Broken Promise Land Of Fifteen" that takes one on a journey to another time and place as does a magnificent definitive "They Call The Wind Maria" sung with lots of stirring passion and vocal greatness. A quite and reflective "I"ve Grown Accustomed To Her Face" starts with just voice and guitar and softly builds into a gorgeous ballad and makes this standard a new listening experience...a rousing and wild "Headin' For New Orleans" raises the roof and at this point one really wishes this experience was also on a DVD concert as this guy must be incredible on stage and is currently in Las Vegas in the lead of "Phantom" through December 2006 and has got to be deeply soulful and incredibly great...hopefully more CD's will be coming and a concert in Los Angeles would be awesome!!! "Green Up Time" is dreamy and romantic and a classy duet with legend Lauren Bacall is a winner on par with legendary pairings of the past and a duet collection from this great singer would be amazing...duet partners ideally would include Tony Bennett, Liza, Barbra, Maureen McGovern, Andrea, Roberto, Renee, etc. and this could be a collection that would put this singing wonder up where he belongs! "Economics" is a great vocal tour-de-force with a cooking arrangement...romantic longing and a splendid vocal make "She Wasn't You" a revelation and a wonderful listening experience...Read more ›

Having scored big with his Kander and Ebb Album, Barrett has moved on to another legend of the musical theatre, Alan Jay Lerner. Encompassing many shows, including My Fair Lady, On A Clear Day, Paint Your Wagon, and Dance a Little Closer, the songs are a combination of beautiful melodies, witty lyrics, and a powerhouse voice. Joining Barrett for duets are Tami Tappan and the incomparable Lauren Bacall. Having just stared in London's Kiss Me Kate and rejoined Broadway's Chicago, Barrett has affirmed his status as a matinee idol and star- and any fans of his and musical theatre will want to listen to this album on the street where you live.
