I've Got My Fingers Crossed: A Celebration Of...

I've Got My Fingers Crossed: A Celebration Of...

by Daryl Sherman



The fine swing singer Daryl Sherman pays tribute to composer Jimmy McHugh on this CD by performing 14 of his tunes, ranging from big hits to obscurities. Sherman sounds perfectly at home on such songs as "I've My Fingers Crossed," "South American Way" (introduced by Carmen Miranda), "I'm Livin' In a Great Big Way," "Doin' the New Lowdown" and "On the Sunny Side of the Street" among others. She is assisted on various songs by pianist Dave McKenna (otherwise Sherman is on piano), the reeds (clarinet, tenor and alto) of Ken Peplowski, veteran tenorman Eddie Barefield (on one of his final recordings), guitarist John Pizzarelli and bassist Jay Leonhart. The latter two occasionally join in with Sherman on vocal duets. Overall, this is an excellent tribute with plenty of subtle surprises.
