Notes and Editorial Reviews

Some evergreen songs given a unique treatment in these arrangements by Barry Booth for horn and piano. This recording has been highly praised for its seductive and relaxing qualities.

" a most tasteful, beautiful and relaxing record. I strongly recommend it". - Barry Tuckwell

"This cleverly titled collection is a must.. Terry Johns gives the melodies a vocal quality...stunningly inventive...the perfect accompaniment to a large gin and tonic" - The Musician

"I can't think of a more perfect combination of instruments to evoke the feeling of the unsung words of that masterpiece [referring to Cole Porter's "In the Still of the Night]. Beautiful mood music" - Desmond
