Monica Mancini

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Tim Sheridan
Henry Mancini's daughter takes a daring debut step as a vocalist right into her father's shadow. On an album covering her father's songs, she makes her mark with a sweet, smooth voice and a nice sense of phrasing. Her gamble pays off with lushly orchestrated versions of "Two for the Road," "Moon River," "Moment to Moment," and others.

    Simply Lush and Perfectly Beautiful!

    It's so refreshing to hear an artist who's album will heal all the drudgery and routine from your day. This is like a breath of fresh air! Monica's voice is a joy to hear. Her phrasing and tonalities are right on! The orchestrations fresh and bright, but utterly romantic. Wow... can this woman sing a song! No vocal gymnastics here, this is a voice that songwriters LOVE... no molestation of lyric or melody, just pure emotion added to great songs! My only complaint is she only releases an album every 2 years.... that's too long to wait!

    See it on Video

    I had the privilege to see Monica Mancini perform this album on Video and have yet to get the CD. The songs are the same but seeing her in person "on tape" with added footage of people who have worked with and knew her late father adds even more to the wonderful songs she has chosen. A sincere, solid performance; Monica Mancini is part of my listening library.

    Better Each Time I Hear Her

    I enjoy this CD more each time I listen to it. I also have the video of the same title. I hope to see her in person someday, perhaps in Branson, Mo., performing at her friend's, Andy Williams, Moon River Theater.

    A sad, sweet elegy.

    This album is best appreciated as a sad, sweet elegy for Henry Mancini, Monica's dad. Most of the songs are touched with a pleasant melancholy. Patrick Williams contributes lush string arrangements that are appropriately cinematic, particularly on
