Classic Broadway

Classic Broadway

by Judy Collins

Overview

Judy Collins's ravishing voice is so supple and rainwater-pure that it's almost shocking to note that she's been making records for nearly 40 years. The songbird's latest matches her penchant for bittersweet ballads with a dozen of the Great White Way's most ravishing and romantic melodies. The mellifluous results are inspired. CLASSIC BROADWAY also boasts the gorgeous and intimate settings of Stephen Sondheim's genius arranger, Jonathan Tunick, who creates stunning panoramas on such timeless songs as the Gershwin's "Embraceable You," and Irving Berlin's divine "They Say It's Wonderful." Collins's amethyst-blue eyes twinkle on Rodgers and Hart's "My Funny Valentine," "Bewitched," and "My Heart Stood Still," and the 60-year-old chanteuse sounds "Younger Than Springtime" on this Rodgers and Hammerstein evergreen. Collins, who introduced the world to the works of such once-unheralded songwriters as Leonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell, and Randy Newman, is now equally passionate about sharing these wonderful and enduring theater songs. The real classic here is Judy Collins herself.
