The Girl on the Magazine Cover: Songs of Berlin  

By:  Joan Morris and William Bolcom

 Very ++ Good Condition. (Includes CD,original artwork inserts and jewel case, all in VERY good Condition.)

Joan Morris is a mezzo-soprano who has recorded a number of albums accompanied by her husband, composer and pianist William Bolcom. She has a lovely voice, and sings the old Tin Pan Alley and similar genre songs straight in the way they were written, without a lot of jazz embellishment. (Not that jazz embellishment is bad, it just doesn't always work with this material.) I'm a big fan of hers, so my opinions may be a little biased; but if you love this music it's hard to not enjoy Morris singing it.

This is one of two albums devoted to Irving Berlin.* While others may have written more sophisticated tunes or more profound lyrics, no one matched Berlin in term of just plain good, rousing , songs. And Morris is with him all the way. Great stuff to listen to around a holiday!
