I have lots of recordings of great women singers doing ballads, you know, the standard Ella, Dinah, Sarah, Billie, Blossom, etc. Where are the boys? The inspiration for this was a CD entitled "Balladeers" which I didn't think was so good, so I expanded on it. The real find here for me was Arthur Pryock, who I didn' know at all. Torme's version of OLD BLACK MAGIC is pretty great. Hoagy's version of GEORGIA is both tender and swinging. And the Frank finisher is a time-honored tear-jerker. Just in time for Valentine's Day ... a really good slow-dancing collection that stays mostly out of the maudlin.

(You no doubt remember what they supposedly wrote on Fred Astaire's first audition card:
"Can't sing, can't act - can dance a little.")

This looks great Sally Anne. Nothing like a red wine, a little mood lighting, and some crooooners on the hi-fi!
