Barnes & Noble - Donald Elfman
Grammy Award–winning vocalist, musician, and producer Peter Eldridge put together this unusual but moving collection of tunes, which showcase the extraordinarily sweet and simple voice and and broad, eclectic tastes of Jack Donahue.

Along the way the Donahue finds special emotional colors in the rare "Blackberry Winter" by Alec Wilder, "Lost in the Stars" by Kurt Weill, and a couple of originals co-written by Donahue and Eldridge. And there are some fine musicians to help the singer and producer realize their vision: David Finck on bass, Rodney Jones on guitar, Andy Ezrin on piano, Darmon Meader on tenor sax, and, on "Blackberry Winter," the legendary Johnny Frigo on violin.
