I emailed my review of Art Pepper's San ...

Marlene VerPlanck: The Mood I’m In

Read "The Mood I’m In" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Marlene VerPlanck has been recording since 1955. In round numbers, that is 60 years. She is a natural singer in the same way that Frank Sinatra, Roseanna Vitro, and Lyn Stanley are natural singers... they open their respective mouths and music just comes out. And, at the far end of this career, VerPlanck sounds very good. ...

Lyn Stanley: Potions: From the ‘50s

Read "Potions: From the ‘50s" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

We Baby Boomers are a persnickety bunch. We revel in our nostalgia while keeping a jaundiced eye on current trends and how derivative they are compared with those we experienced when they were really new. Critics dismiss this nostalgia as wasted pathos, pining away for what can never be again. That is missing the point. Memory ...

Lyn Stanley: Lost In Romance

Read "Lost In Romance" reviewed by Nicholas F. Mondello

A hardened cynic might presume that the song royalty beneficiaries of the estates of Irving Berlin, Johnny Mercer, Harold Arlen, George and Ira Gershwin and other song giants would mercenarily welcome yet another Great American Songbook-rich recording by a female vocalist.
