Album Notes

Personnel: Johnny Mercer (vocals).

Liner Note Author: Will Friedwald.

The standards written by Johnny Mercer make up a good portion of the Great American Songbook. But while his work has been recorded by pretty much every great song stylist of the mid-20th century, MERCER SINGS MERCER finds the great composer performing his own tunes, with no small amount of aplomb. Though such tunes as "Glow Worm" and "Blues in the Night" have been interpreted by some of the world's finest singers, Mercer lends them an unassuming yet distinctive swing all his own.
