Notes and Editorial Reviews

Using the astonishingly fresh music of Jerome Kern and the lyrics of over a dozen of his collaborators, including Oscar Hammerstein II, Dorothy Fields, and P.G. Wodehouse, The Land Where Good Songs Go weaves the stories of three couples into a theatrical song cycle that sparkles with wit, tenderness, and warmth. A cast of top Broadway talents -- Kate Baldwin, Heidi Blickstenstaff, Rebecca Luker, Philip Chaffin, Graham Rowat and Matthew Scott -- offer delectable renditions of over 30 Kern songs, for which music director David Loud provides brand new vocal arrangements and orchestrations: standards such as "A Fine Romance", "Long Ago (and Far Away)" "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes," and "The Way You Look Read more Tonight," as well as forgotten tunes like "An Irish Husband," "Bill's a Liar," "We're Crooks," "The Subway Express," "Ain't It Funny...?" and "Never Marry a Girl."
