An Evening With Jerome Kern - The Velvet Voices
Ahhhh, velvet...it conjures up images of Canadian Whiskey, doesn't it? Here at the Starlite, we like velvet too, and in the case of tonight's featured artist, it's The Velvet Voices. We were hoping Simon Rady's name would be on this release somewhere, after all, his "Voices In Motion" is one of our favorite discs here at the Lounge. Alas, "An Evening With Jerome Kern" has no real link to Mr. Rady's little piece of hi-fi Heaven, but the more mellow tunes here sound as if they could have belonged on his release anyway. We prefer to skip the uptempo numbers and go straight for the dreamy, tinkling vibes in "Long Ago (And Far Away)", "I Dream Too Much", and "The Song Is You".
