Always looking for a new voice. Found one here! Will consider more from her. Oddly singers aren't producing many new CD's like they used to.

As a jazz buff, I had very little exposure to Cheryl Bentyne other than through her stellar work with Manhatten Transfer. Her performance in " The Book of Love" is a revelation on many levels. This collection of beautiful ballads is one of the most poignantly romantic recordings I have heard. The lush arrangements of husband/keyboardist Corey Allen and the backing of the Prague Symphony Orchestra are magical. Ms. Bentyne's vocal quality and range are near perfection--her phrasing and enunciation are models of clarity. She is coquettish without being cloying. Listen to her alluring treatment of Let's fall in love and you too will get weak in the knees. Her classic treatment of "Be My Love" is exceeded only by Wayne Johnson's beautiful acoustic guitar and a jewel of a solo by cellist Armen Ksajikian. The high water mark of the cd in my view is "You taught my heart to sing". This romantic ballad is perfected by Bentyne backed only by husband Corey Allen's piano. The feeling and emotion between the two is palpable. Bentyne and her arranger husband have indeed made beautiful music together. Highly Recommended!

Cheryl Bentyne poignantly describes the stages of relationship: from meeting, to the "butterflies," to "could this be the one?" to commitment, to disillusionment, anger and disbelief, to resignation... Anyone who has been in love will recognize the depth of this music shared. One of my favorites...

Hi I'm mrs Islander. When I want romance, I get all dressed in my sexy clothes, pour the wine , and play Cheryl Bentyne. Very sexy and romantic music. Good stuff.

La lumineuse et très belle voix de Cheryl ne parvient pas à me faire écouter ce disque ennuyeux et convenu ; on se croit à la fin des années 50 dans une sorte de film obscur ; célèbre pour ses vocalises acrobatiques dans sa formation d'origine "Manahatan transfer", c'est ici une suite de complaintes un peu tatasses et nunuches -, pour les amateurs d'émotions faciles et génériques. Dommage, l'artiste mérite mieux et plus d'épanouissement que de chanter la 1001 ème version de "cry me a river" ! Absurde et totalement décalé. Bref : le vol du bourdon !
