I Hear Music

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jason Ankeny
I Hear Music spotlights the classic songs of Frank Loesser, the gifted lyricist who rose to fame thanks to Broadway perennials like Guys and Dolls and How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. With 26 performances spanning from early efforts like Fats Waller's "I Wish I Were Twins" and Dorothy Lamour's "The Moon of Manakoora" Loesser's first major lit to later successes like Kay Kyser's "Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition," the set offers an impressive overview of Loesser's career, although it's hardly definitive in light of key omissions like the Academy Award-winning "Baby It's Cold Outside."
