This kind of album can only result from the interplay of seasoned yet tirelessly inventive musicians who would rather lay out than revert to cliché. Trumpeter Lew Soloff, whose daunting résumé charts a trajectory from Blood, Sweat & Tears to the Carnegie Hall Jazz Orchestra, displays his interpretive prowess on classics such as the title cut, "Come Rain or Come Shine," and "The Way You Look Tonight." He is backed by a rhythm section to die for: Mulgrew Miller on piano, George Mraz on bass, and Victor Lewis on drums. Soloff's wife, Emily Mitchell, plays the harp on two cuts, one of which is a movement from a Tchaikovsky symphony. The CD consists of nine tunes, which are nicely sequenced and balanced and, not incidentally, suffused with feeling. The music commands attentive listening, and that is just what the players here are doing with each other: while Soloff sustains a note on "I'm a Fool to Want You," Miller responds with a lovely phrase that Soloff picks up in the next breath. Sparkling exchanges like this abound here; not a note is taken for granted, and that's what jazz improvisation, at its best, is all about. --Karen Bennett

I had the pleasure of meeting Lew Soloff a few months back at The Carlysle Hotel in New York when he was backing Steve Tyrell along with his friend Lou Marini. Lew was kind enough to invite a few of us over to a club he was playing "after hours" and I was turned on to what Lew has been doing since his years with Blood, Sweat and Tears.

I immediately ordered "With A Song In My Heart" when I returned home and immediately took to all 9 tracks. This album has more tasty arrangements; thoughtful and insightful instead of trying to blow you away.

I highly recommend the CD for those of you wanting to step up from that terrible "smooth jazz" fluff and instead - want to listen to something that is "real" jazz with a smooth touch. You won't be disappointed.

Lew Soloff, always a great soloist in Gil Evans' band, is a wonderful soloist. His improvisations blew my socks off on Evans' recordings, and he is no disappointment here. A great solosist who deserves more recognition. Try this CD, you'll like its intelligence, creativity, and emotion.

This is a very relaxing and soothing recording, it might even lower blood pressure. Definitely one of the most beautiful recordings that I have heard. I would like to thank the reviewers who previously gave this recording high ratings and inspired me to acquire it.
