Notes & Reviews:

Having regularly performed cabaret in the UK and US, this is the first disc of Bennet's cabaret performances as a solo artist, performing his own arrangements. The songs are beautifully sung and played, and with the recordings intimate quality really allows the songs to breathe. This is an inventive and charming selection of material from the golden age of American popular song, in which the titles reflect the vast knowledge and influence of Richard Rodney Bennett.

Glasgow Herald
What was important was to acknowledge that the finely crafted marriage of words and music that flourished in the thirties and forties - indeed the golden age of American popular song - simply aren't period pieces, not when a Richard Rodney Bennett is around to pick them up, dust them off and allow their magic to start all over again
