ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Hello! Thank you for visiting my page. I hope you like my music!

It all started when my favorite vocal coach and friend, Deborah Shulman, suggested that I go into the wonderful world of cabaret and should eventually put together a CD from the songs in my show. She introduced me to Ted Howe and he beautifully arranged “Rhode Island is Famous for You.” He is an amazing musician, so professional, kind, and someone I respect immensely.
Soon after, Deborah introduced me to three musicians who were also a dream to work with! Jeff Colella on piano, Chris Colangelo on Bass, and Rod Harbour on the drums. They are all creative, professional, kind, funny, and brilliant! Hearing them play and working along side of them was surreal… A dream.

Jeff Colella arranged seven of the songs in this project and several others that I will use on future recordings. His arrangements are magical and gave this project the dreamy, whimsical feeling that I wanted to create. He knew just what would be the right sound and wanted to put some little surprises into the songs, for example the little “rap” segment in “Too Darn Hot.” Thank you so very much, Jeff from Massachusetts…

To sum up the experience I have as I work with these creative beings, I have to say… Deborah, Jeff, Chris, Rod, and Scott Frasier- the engineer extraordinaire - (love your studio and what you believe in)… You are all just too darn hot!

A quick description of the tunes on this project and a few notes of the inspiration for the song choices…

Too Darn Hot is a song that I have loved for many years. It was in my show when I sang at Opryland U.S.A. in Nashville, Tennessee. Opryland doesn’t exist anymore but the talent in that park, incredible! It was an experience that I will never forget and treasure. I have loved Cole Porter ever since. In my act, we updated the tune, and was choreographed by one of my very favorite people, Janet Miller. She is a marvelous director and choreographer and does it all. Most of all, she is a lovely person and friend. Thank you, Janet!

Rhode Island is Famous for You was chosen because Deborah and I are fans of the late Nancy Lamott. This song had the charm and humor that I enjoy and I knew right away that it was the perfect choice for the project

Does Anybody Here Love Me was a little jewel that was written just after Marilyn Monroe died. It is a very honest song with lyrics that touch the center of your soul. Billy Barnes really captured the essence of a person who desires unconditional love and acceptance. I have always been a Marilyn fan and thought it had a beautiful story and lesson attached to the song.

My Heart Belongs to Daddy was fun to record and I love this version. It was also a song that Marilyn sang and Cole Porter’s lyrics are witty and sassy. I wanted to bring that “fun” playful attitude into the project. This arrangement has a fantastic beat and rhythm to it.

Too Young to Go Steady is a song written by Jimmy McHugh and Harold Adamson. It is extra special to me because I know the McHugh family and adore them. They are wonderful, talented, and have hearts of gold. Knowing the family and singing the song was a gift and a blessing. It captures that feeling of being in love for the very first time, or puppy love, or that first crush…

Children Will Listen is a Sondheim tune that I really love! This is a song is valuable for teachers or anyone that works with children to remember, because we have so much influence over a child's self-esteem… What we tell them they often believe… “Careful what you say, children will listen…”

I Will Never Leave You was a song that one of my best friends sent to me as a gift. I fell in love with the song and realize that your true friends will stand by you and help you throughout your lifetime. They are diamonds and they are beautiful. They are so dear to me and I am thankful for those people in my life. This is dedicated to my friends that have had cancer and are battling cancer; their courage is an inspiration to me.

Dance is a song that Amanda McBroom wrote. It is a song that I loved from the first moment that I heard it. It is meaningful and honest, because it is a song about the desire for a love to sustain romance throughout a couple’s lifetime.

Last but not least… To all of you reading this right now…

My new friends,

It is my wish that these songs will inspire you in some special way, because every person can make a positive difference in this world. Come visit my website sometime. www.marcirichmond.com

Your Friend,

Marci
