Marilyn Maye was one of Johnny Carson's favorite singers; she was on his show countless times. I believe he called her 'Super-Singer'. Few, if any, deserve such an accolade, but Marilyn did then and still does now. She's still singing and singing great. Marilyn possesses an unbelievably proficient set of 'pipes' and delivers each song in character, with arrangements on "The Lamp Is Low" conceived by her, Sammy Tucker (her pianist/husband at the time) and orchestrated by one of the masters, Peter Matz, her voice is a wonder to behold. There are very few musicians whom I would call great without qualification; Marilyn Maye is one of them. If there were six stars to be had, I would choose all six. James Chirillo

This is one of the truly great artists of our American music...To listen and hear the lyric sung on pitch and phrased as the composer and lyricist intended is so rewarding in this day of brack and bray. While the insidious intent of todays "stylist" is to attract attention to themselves at the expense of the MUSIC (it is called music,you know) this great lady devotes heart and soul to the tale of the tune..Jazz is the lifes' blood of our musical culture,and oh my heaven, does it live in every note sung by Marilyn...She is a national treasure to be listened to by us, the way Billie,Dinah,Ella and Carmen have occupied our ears in the past. Learn from her, young ones, and remember her lovingly if you are new to the sound of this wonderful,lady of song. alan satz-- acsandmws@bellsouthnet
