Sandra Marlowe: The Heart Always RemembersBy
Originals and clever medleys make up most of the balance of the program, with Fran Landesman and Tommy Wolf's snazzy yet light-hearted "Nice Weather For Ducks" acting as the only performance which doesn't slot into any of those categories. Marlowe offers three self-penned selections, sending out the fiery and down-home "Corner Store Blues," the calming bossa-based "A Sweet Wind" and the moving title track; Dunlap delivers two for the road, contributing his intimate "So Quiet Is The Night" and upbeat, samba-strutting "Let The Music Take You" at the album's end; and compositional mergers make for good bedfellows in different places, made clear through the flowing-turned-sunny "Whistling Away The Dark/Anyone Can Whistle" and sly "Trav'lin All Alone/Travelin' Light." Cooking up a baker's dozen of treats with help from Dunlap, Robbins, drummer Jason Lewis and a few one-time guests, Marlowe truly makes her voice carry.
