A Dream Come True: The Best of Trudy Desmond

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Paula Edelstein
This specially priced collection is comprised of material from the four studio recordings made in Trudy Desmond's short lifetime. It celebrates the life and work of a vocalist whose simple yet heartfelt delivery touched many people. Desmond excelled at upholding tradition and the rare, fine art of singing songs that she considered to be the greatest ever written, largely from the Great American Songbook. This sentimental journey features performances by Bill Charlap, Randy Brecker, Roger Kellaway, and others on such songs as "Make Someone Happy," "You're the Top," and "Nice Work if You Can Get It."
