Notes & Reviews:

Australian pressing. Quintessential mezzo-soprano Marilyn Horne treats us to a program of great songs from The American Songbook - a veritable quilt of many-coloured delights. The arrangements range from delicate to lush and the mood ranges from racy fun to religiously uplifting. Decca. 2005.
