Collection of Smart Arrangements and Gorgeous Playing!
For Ted Rosenthal's second release on Venus, he dedicated the whole album to Helen Merrill--the exceptional singer who he has accompanied for more than ten years--by performing standars that are closely associated with her.
The album starts with "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To," a track Merrill made her own on her album with Clifford Brown on trumpet and Quincy Jones as arranger. Rosenthal's smart arrangements and gorgeous, lyrical playing are complemented perfectly by George Mraz on bass and Al Foster on drums. The close interaction between the trio is astounding.
"Rosenthal easily meets the challenge of finding fresh paths into these frequently recorded songs..." -Ken Dryden, allmusic.com
