"Beautifully sung, Great arrangement and a rare gem of Rodgers and Hart's collection of song". Mary Cleere Haran introduced me to the beautiful music of Rodgers and the witty lyrics of Hart. I loved her own jazzy and sexy interpretation of "Manhattan" from Garrick Gaieties. Also "Way out West" from Babes in Arms , "Falling in Love with Love" from The Boys from Syracuse ,"Blue Room" from The GirlFriend and "Chicago" from PalJoey are just delicious. Not very popular songs such "I'll Tell the man in the street","This Funny world" and "Everything I've Got" is simpy enjoyable... The whole album is really great, I wish they would have included the more popular Rodgers and Hart classics like "My Funny Valentine" and "Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered" , but the songs in her albums are worth rediscovering over and over. Great for a sweet romatic evenings....

Miss Haran was discovered by the late Ban Bagley and I'm sure Ben would be very proud of this CD. Miss Haran voice is simply wonderful: soft, warm and somehow sexy, it reminds me Mina.This CD is an wonderful collection of well know songs such as The blue room or Wait till you see her and some seldom revived tunes such as A lady must live and My Friend the night probably the best song in this collection (Miss Haran recorder this song also for Ben Bagley's Rodgers & Hart Vol. V)

This is a tribute album to the lyrics of Lorenz Hart (of Rodgers and Hart fame). While Haran may not have the vocal pyros of Ian Shaw who did a similar project, her cabaret background gave meaning to lyrics that suffused the song with a new life. I know its cliche to say that there's always a new singer who can eclipse the renditions of standards (after all, Ella Fitzgerald is still peerless in this department), but Haran succeeded in making "Everything I've Got" sound like an exasperated plea, unlike the definitive versions of Ella and Holly Cole. Haran's voice is becoming more interesting since "Out Of This World" and "There's A Small Hotel" days, and there is a sexy husk in her voice's throaty sounds. This is highly recommended for people who want to listen to rare Hart songs not overdone by others. Plus Haran is quite a stunner too. Visually.

Chet Baker was a Hart fan and I was first drawn to Hart's music through Chet.
MCH was a superb artist with a beautiful voice and wonderful phrasing. It is clear that she, like Chet, found that Hart filled a special niche that entranced her. She sings these songs as if they were all personally written for her.
