SKU: Fresh Sound 5502 Categories: ,


In this group of a dozen songs spanning more than half a century, Nancy Harrow demonstrates her ability to absorb the essence of the most valuable popular music from any era. She concentrates on pieces that helped the Beatles become one of the best-known bands in the world and leavens the collection with standards by master songwriters who have enriched the lives of generations. Classics by Victor Young, Jerome Kern, Johnny Mercer and Victor Youmans share the album with familiar works by Lennon, McCartney and Harrison.
Ms. Harrow’s collaborators are among the busiest members of the New York community of world-class jazz musicians in the late twentieth century. Roland Hanna, George Mraz and Grady Tate form the all-star rhythm section, with valuable assistance from percussionist Arto Tuncboyaciyan. This is one of Nancy Harrow’s most endearing and imperishable achievements.
