Marie-Jose Lord opens with a rather freely-sung "Summertime," and I thought I was going to like this disc better than I did. On the whole, she sings well enough--though "My man's gone now" is utterly unintelligible--however, there's nothing here to make you sit up and take notice. Lord receives solid support from the Orchestre Metropolitain under Giuseppe Pietraroia, and a first-rate recording from Atma, but it's hard to recommend this disc when most everything on it has been done to death by sopranos since the dawn of recording. The single exception is an aria from Starmania, a 25-year-old rock opera...and that's not very interesting. And why does a solo disc of only 57 minutes have two orchestral tracks, one right at the end? (The Jewel Song from Gounod's Faust, capped with a satisfactory top B, would have been a much better finale.)
