Notes & Reviews:

Love is what fascinates poets at all times and Broadway lyricists are often poets extra-ordinaire. Oscar Hammerstein, Stephen Sondheim, Cole Porter and so many others help us with our enjoyment of life and compel us to sing. The songs on this disc include ones we all know and some we may have heard and a few that are recent and obscure enough to be a pleasure to discover. But mostly, each of these songs is a work of art and beautifully sung by Jean Danton. Danton's artistry has led to acclaimed performances through the United States and Europe in opera, oratorio, recitals, and as a soloist with symphony orchestras. She is a favorite soloist for musical theatre and pops concerts appearing with the Boston Pops Orchestra and New England Light Opera among others and her versatility extends to jazz as well. She has several recordings on Albany Records and Newport Classics. Her television credits include documentaries for PBS and Lifetime. Collaborating with Ms. Danton are pianist Doug Hammer and drummer Steve Chaggaris.
