ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
HARVEY SCHMIDT wrote the music (to lyrics by Tom Jones) for The Fantasticks in 1959 for a summer production at Barnard College. Since its Off-Broadway opening in May 1960, it went on to become the longest running production in the history of the American theatre. Jones and Schmidt's first Broadway show, 110 in the Shade, was nominated for a Tony Award and was revived recently to great acclaim by the New York City Opera. I Do! I Do!, their two-character musical starring Mary Martin and Robert Preston, was a success on Broadway and on tour and was revived in 1996 at the Lamb's Theatre in New York. For several years, Jones and Schmidt worked privately at Portfolio, their theatre workshop, concentrating on small-scale musicals in new and often un-tried forms. The most notable of these efforts were Celebration, which moved to Broadway, and Philemon, which won an Outer Critics Circle Award. In addition to the 1992 Special Tony Award for The Fantasticks, Mr. Jones and Mr. Schmidt are the recipients of the prestigious ASCAP-Richard Rodgers Award for 1993.

THIS CD was recorded in Schmidt's home studio in Tomball, Texas on the occasion of his 75th birthday on September 15, 2004. It features the composer lending his distinctive piano stylings to songs from throughout his careers, spanning the big hits like "Try to Remember" and "Soon It's Gonna Rain" to lesser-known and never-before-recorded gems.

NOTE: This recording was made "live" and occasionally includes ambient noises as the squeaking of Mr. Schmidt's chair. It's part of the charm of the CD, but we wanted you to know it's there.

It's magical and fun!
It's so amazing to listen to the actual composer playing his very memorable music and have it be just the piano.

There's Harvey Schmidt and there's everyone else
I have been a fan of Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt for about as long as it's been possible to be one. I saw the original FANTASTICKS with Jerry Orbach (and Tom Jones as the old actor), I've seen 110 IN THE SHADE and I DO! I DO! and CELEBRATION on Broadway, and I've been privileged to see PHILEMON, THE BONE ROOM, COLETTE (with Diana Rigg), MIRETTE, and their very best show, GROVERS CORNERS, during its brief run in Illinois. There are some brilliant lyricists in the theater today -- Tom Jones, Stephen Sondheim, William Finn, a few more. There are some fine composers, but for me, no one comes close to Harvey. There's Harvey Schmidt and there's everyone else, and it's wonderful to hear Harvey play some of his own songs. I hope you have 4 or 5 sequels planned. I'll be first in line for them.
