A January 27, 2004 release, Cheryl Bentyne's TALK OF THE TOWN is a stunning, memorable collection of jazz vocals sure to win her a large listening audience. A 25-year member of Manhattan Transfer, this is her debut on the Telarc label.
Cheryl Bentyne's sensual and exciting voice has full play with the thirteen songs in the collection. These songs come from the great American Songbook and include, among others, such standards as "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To," "They Can't Take That Away From Me," one of the finest versions around of "The Very Thought Of You," "The Meaning of the Blues," "These Foolish Things," and "Still Good Friends."
Topnotch female jazz vocals make this a must-have for the home jazz library. Among the guest artists are Kenny Barron, Corey Allen, John Patitucci, and Chuck Mangione. Highly recommended.
