Italian pianist and singer Daniela Schachter goes into the “songbook" genre on this CD, doing lively spins on the work of songwriter Jimmy Van Heusen, a man responsible for more hits than I realized. I knew he had written several songs for Frank Sinatra but until seeing them here, I hadn't realized he also had a ...

Read "Vanheusenism: A Tribute To Jimmy Van Heusen" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Anybody who's ever adoringly listened to a large number of Frank Sinatra's hits or Bing Crosby's classics is a fan of Jimmy Van Heusen's work, even if they're not familiar with his name.

Read "Vanheusenism: A Tribute to Jimmy Van Heusen" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

For the first time, Italian-born vocalist and pianist Daniela Schächter devotes her fourth album to a single songwriter: Jimmy Van Heusen. Even a cursory glance at the song list will show that to be no limitation, as these are some of the most enduring classics in the Great American Songbook. Van Heusen had a long association ...

Dolores Scozzesi: A Special Taste

Read "A Special Taste" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Los Angeles-based vocalist Dolores Scozzesi concludes A Special Taste with the time-honored Kosma/Mercer standard, “Autumn Leaves." Her approach is one of simplicity and elegance, opening the piece with Jacques Prevert's French lyrics, an alto Edith Piaf crossed with Roberta Gambarini and accented with Daniela Schachter.

Scozzesi is accompanied to great effect by guitarist ...

This Sicilian-born, New York-based artist possesses distinctive high-pitch voice, which she employs on ...
