I have just about every cd Becky Kilgore has ever recorded, and I never thought they would all be topped. Well, whattya know? Yes, THIS HER BEST CD TO DATE!!! Perhaps the finest recordings of the genre this entire decade. This combination, her, David Frishberg's sophisticatingly charming accompaniment, and the music of Frank Loesser, can only be described as one made in heaven. Kilgore has a unique common bond with Julie London and June Christy, being that she can work pure magic with sparse backing, often better than a great jazz vocalist can do with a big band behind her or him. All you need as a piano, though having one of the greatest alive certainly is an asset. As the liner notes say, it was not an easy task to pick seventeen songs out of Loesser's over 700 compositions, and they've managed to do so, picking the perfect sample, while making the listener long for a follow up. It comes on strong with "Thank Your Lucky Stars," injecting a gallon of adrenaline to light up any listener's room, and then seeming to come out of left field with the less commercially safe introduction of "Let's Get Lost." Merely hinting on the risqué, the rendition emphasizes a lively romantic dream potential. Then it gets mellow with the lovely "Can't Get Out Of This Mood." "The Lady's In Love With You" has always seemed like it was written for Becky Kilgore, and her latest rendition is complimented beautifully by David Frishberg's solo, which echoes of James P. Johnson's freely loose style, only to close with a endearing vocal coda. "Say It (Over And Over Again)" is simply grand, like it came out of a show in which a large, over choreographed, grand scale number was substituted for an opportunity to emphasize a great song by way of a simple presentation, warranting a standing ovation.Read more ›

Format: Audio CD
The stellar duo of Rebecca Kilgore and Dave Frishberg ranks among America's unadulterated musical treasures. In the summer of 2008 I had the pleasure of hearing them live in Portland, OR where they occasionally gig together when they're able to make time from their busy schedules. The two performed several of these classic Loesser songs that evening, keeping a small but appreciative audience rapt during two long sets. This Loesser tribute is their latest collaboration, released in August 2008. As with everything bearing their names, it's an absolute delight from start to finish.

The Kilgore-Firshberg musical partnership began in the early 90's after the pianist had escaped to Portland from LA in search of a better environment to raise his children. At that time Kilgore--a resident of Portland since the late 70's--was gigging regularly in the area and worked up the courage to ask Frishberg to accompany her on an upcoming date. Not long after, Dave called Rebecca for a twice-weekly job at the Heathman Hotel in downtown Portland. The duo clicked from the start, resulting in a 5-year Heathman residency, as well as a string of recordings, most of them on Arbors. (The Starlit Hour, Arbors 19255 documents their final evening at the hotel.)

The album on hand serves as a satisfying introduction to the work of an American musical giant. Ten of the selections showcase Loesser's collaborations with such noted composers as Arthur Schwartz, Jimmy McHugh, and Burton Lane, while the remaining seven feature both his words and music. In the detailed liners by Doug Ramsey, Becky cites the qualities that attract her to this material: the "earthy" cleverness of the lyrics, and the songs themselves, "beautiful" and "fun to sing.

I'd heard many Frank Loesser songs, but never knew the writer. This is a good selection. Now I know who wrote so many of those I've always loved. Kilgore and Frishberg are a get duo. She sings with feeling, attentive to the lyrics, always on pitch and without affectation. Frishberg is a great accompanyist, right there but never intrusive. Good album.

Becky and Dave playing Loesser- it doesn't get much better. "The Lady's in Love With You" is a topper. If you are a Frishberg fan you'll love his comping here.
