Product Description

Amazon.com

Many know Georgia Stitt as the vocal coach on the primetime reality series Grease: You're the One That I Want, but she has a thriving "side" business as an arranger, conductor, musical director, pianist and songwriter. It's the latter aspect that gets showcased on this album, in which Stitt's songs are performed by a collection of topnotch Broadway pros. The overall mood is one of thoughtful longing, emphasized by largely acoustic arrangements, mostly by either Stitt or her husband, Jason Robert Brown (The Last 5 Years). While perfectly crafted, the songs quickly blend into each other; their share a certain polite, "beige" elegance that also lacks inner fire. This makes the tracks breaking from that mold stand out even more: Jenn Colella brings a nice twang to the rollicking "Big Wings;" Faith Prince sounds positively delighted on the jaunty "I Get to Show You the Ocean;" and Kelli O'Hara demonstrates why she's one of the finest interpreters on Broadway on the sepia-tinted "Perfect Summer," which sometimes sounds like something cut from a 1940s musical (Stitt herself plays the piano on all three songs). --Elisabeth Vincentelli

I'm SO glad I bought this CD! Each beautiful song is a mini One Act play, with glorious and surprising melodies, and sophisticated, engaging lyrics. Oh, and the voices! Kelli O'Hara singing "Perfect Summer" is simply gorgeous, and Faith Prince's light-hearted and touching vocal on "I Get To Show You The Ocean" is perfection. Every song is a winner!

These are songs from the heart. Georgia Stitt has talent galore and this CD is only the beginning. Every word sung touches your soul and stays in your head. I especially loved her tribute to her daughter! I cried when I heard it, thinking of my own children! I can't wait until more works come out of this wonderfully talented, blessed individual because I know we haven't seen the last of this gem!

If you're looking for music from one of the most influential up and coming Broadway writers of our time, with people who actually know what they're doing behind the microphone, then you've found your match with this album!

Through this whirlwind roller coaster ride of emotions, we get to know a little more about Ms. Stitt, and are all the better for it. She's got some of Broadway's brightest stars singing her emotionally wrought lyrics and soulfully moving themes. Between her and her husband, we may be looking at our generation's Comden and Green!

The highlight of this CD, for me, is Faith Prince's rendition of "I Get to Show You the Ocean." If you've any love of Broadway at all, BUY THIS CD!

Georgia Stitt has something to say. She speaks with sincerity through lyrics that notice the details of living and find substance. Her music is equally honest in it varied flavors from artsong ("These Two") to my least favorite--country ("Big Wings") to fun show tune ("I Get to Show you the Ocean") to power ballad ("The Holy Secret" and the stunning "I Lay my Armor Down") to the intimate, more sophisticated than pop, title track. No matter the flavor of the music, the unifying factor is a fresh look at the little gestures of living that unintentionally expose a bit of truth.
