“… performed with a consummate elegance and technical wizardry that make you wonder how the man who recorded them could possibly have fallen into obscurity.”
Read Terry Teachout’s full review in The Wall Street Journal
Cy Walter is remembered with two historic CDs and two 24-page booklets celebrating his remarkable career and even more remarkable talents. Cy Walter was one of the preeminent jazz and pop interpreters of the Great American Songbook, and here are two generous CDs brimming with music that hasn’t been heard in over half-a-century (see track listing below). It’s music that is still considered to be the top in piano jazz. The booklets include essays by fellow pianists and music historians Mark Walter, Michael Feinstein, Peter Mintun, Chilton Ryan, Maggie Perrin, Alex Hassan, Richard Behrens, and Stanley Turkel.
ARTISTS: Cy Walter, Hoagy Carmichael, Frank Sinatra, Fred Astaire, Marlene Dietrich, Mabel Mercer, Benny Goodman and His Orchestra, Art Tatum, Teddy Wilson, Liberace, Eileen Farrell, Stan Freeman, Buddy Barnes, Steve Ross, Alex Hassan, Doug Bowles, Margaret and Forrest Perrin, Walter Gross, Earl Wild, Audrey Christie, Wynn Murray, Gil Bowers, June Valli, Bob Haymes, Helen Carroll, and Inez Carrillo
