Album Review
Reviewed 2015-02-20 
General Description: The work of arrangers Charles Miller and Wladimir Selinsky. Very non-swing. NOT a jump-up-and-get-going set of songs. They are ALL smooth and reflective in their own way. The entire CD is really once-pop (now usually performed jazzy) songs made into lush, sentimental, romantic Hollywood-like orchestrations that call to mind long dresses and tuxedoes if dancing. Back in the 1930's and 40's pop songs used to be played in all sorts of settings and with various instruments combinations using salon arrangements such as these.
1. (4:38) The Song Is You - Jerome Kern song
2. (3:30) Once In A Blue Moon - Jerome Kern song
3. (4:23) All The Things You Are - Jerome Kern song
4. (4:30) The Way You Look Tonight - Jerome Kern song
5. (4:08) Smoke Gets In Your Eyes - Jerome Kern song
6. (3:47) Bill - Jerome Kern song
7. (2:53) Solitude - Duke Ellington song
8. (2:26) So Rare - Jerry Herst song - vibraphone also played
9. (3:13) Mood Indigo - Duke Ellington song
10. (2:22) Apple Blossoms - Joe Venuti song
11. (3:25) Blues Serenade - Frank Signorelli song
12. ***(1:55) Honeysuckle Rose - Fats Waller song - vibraphone also played; most swinging of all
13. (3:31) Sophisticated Lady - Duke Ellington song
14. (3:30) Sweet Sue - Victor Young song
15. (4:16) Long Ago (And Far Away) - Ira Gershwin song (arranged by Paul Schwartz; from the 1944 film Cover Girl)
