Overview

Russian-born composer Vernon Duke [1903-1969] artfully straddled the gulf between classical and popular music -- he composed for Diaghilev's Ballets Russes as well as authored timeless standards like "April in Paris" and "Autumn in New York." American soprano Dawn Upshaw is equally versatile. This entry in her celebrated songbook series displays the diva in divine form on those classics as well as more obscure, but just as heavenly, tunes like "Low and Lazy" and "The Love I Long For." Upshaw's classy collaborators include the marvelous pianist Fred Hersch, Stephen Sondheim's longtime orchestrator Jonathan Tunick, and guitarist John Pizzarelli, who also adds his jazzy vocals to "I Like the Likes of You."

Dawn Upshaw captures the quintessential Vernon Duke on this album. A collection of Dukes most well-know songs masterfully interpreted by Dawn Upshaw. Hints of Gershwin mix happily with Dukes essentially serious approach to create a scintillating album that is eloquent, uplifting, whimsical and downright sexy!
