It's a Grand Night for Singing: The Music of Rodgers & Hammerstein

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein's writing partnership has been called the greatest of the 20th century, and with the music they created for a string of hugely popular Broadway musicals in the '40s and '50s, it's hard to really argue the point. This three-disc set, which collects artists ranging from Gordon MacRae to Shirley Jones, Doris Day, Mary Martin, Billie Holiday, and many others, features dozens of the writing duo's greatest songs from those timeless musicals.
