Joyce Breach
Remembering Mabel Mercer With the Keith Ingham Trio, Vol. 3

This CD celebrates a time and place that feels distant indeed. It centers around the 1950s, a decade when countless people came from small towns to a big town - Manhattan - to be sophisticated. Those were the days when Cole Porter was the patron saint of every chic New Yorker; when songwriting, good or bad, was a craft built on absolute precision. The half-rhyme wasn't allowed. It was a time when small things - from the mom and pop store in Greenwich Village to the little East Side cabaret - still mattered and were allowed to flourish. Natty dress was de rigueur at a theatre or nightclub; singers hinted at sex but seldom got explicit. The atmosphere was polite, and much went unsaid....
