Notes and Editorial Reviews

This carefully assembled collection represents the vision, artistry, and remarkable scope that the Grammy Award-winning Chanticleer has demonstrated over the course of a history that began in 1978, encompassing some 30 recordings. In a collection that features three never-before-recorded but often-requested Chanticleer interpretations -- of Mahler's Ich bin der Welt, Gershwin's Summertime, and Crouch's Lullaby -- The Best of Chanticleer reveals one of the most distinctive, stirring, and indeed important voices in music today.
