ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
What USA TODAY had to say about NEW WORDS:

Andrea Marcovicci, NEW WORDS,
A Celebration of Contemporary Songwriting (**** out of four)

Though an excellent stage actress and one of America’s best cabaret singers, Marcovicci has had a hard time translating her highly personal style to recordings. This new one succeeds magnificently with a repertoire of all-new songs that are alternately smart, insightful and original, tastefully arranged for groups ranging from chamber ensemble to big band. Some of the authors are well-known from Broadway, such as Stephen Schwartz (Godspell) and William Finn (Falsettos). Others veer toward a more classical art-song style or are just plain hilarious, such as Philip Namanworth’s "Avoid", A portrait of those charming but slippery people who live life without confrontations.
By David Patrick Stearns, USA TODAY – LIFE Section

ABOUT ANDREA MARCOVICCI:
"Andrea Marcovicci has an incandescent enthusiasm and a masterly balance between poignancy and wit." Stephen Holden, The New York Times

Andrea Marcovicci, a champion of the American Popular Songbook, has created full-cast variety shows and over forty solo cabaret shows. Her many recordings reflect her deep devotion not only to classic songwriters of the past (like Irving Berlin, Cole Porter, and Rodgers & Hart) but her encouragement of new voices composing in that same tradition. Andrea began her career with appearances on The Today Show and The Merv Griffin show, subsequently appearing at the legendary New York nightclub Reno Sweeny, and eventually mounting a solo concert at Carnegie Hall with guest, Michael Feinstein.

Her many awards and honors include a MAC, BISTRO, and MABEL. Andrea was inducted into The Cabaret Hall of Fame in 2016. She holds the record – an unprecedented 25 seasons – at the legendary Oak Room of the Algonquin Hotel, and was the final performer ever to grace that stage.

In a career spanning over five decades, the singer and actress, has co-starred with Danny DeVito, Sir Michael Caine, Tom Selleck, Sam Waterston and many others. Her film debut in “The Front” brought her a Golden Globe nomination. She’s played Broadway, the White House, and sold-out the esteemed LICEU Opera House in Barcelona and Town Hall in NYC. Andrea ushered in the millennium with the Chicago Symphony. “Ten Cents a Dance,” her tribute to Ruth Etting, aired on PBS. Andrea has guest starred on Garrison Keillor’s Prairie Home Companion and read poetry, and stories, for NPR.

Great CD; listen more than once!
Marcovicci is a wonderful singer, and these songs are fantastic. Most are unfamiliar, so you'll have to listen more than once to fall in love with them, but it's well worth the effort to do that! This one spins over and over in my 6-stack player, and I love it more every time I hear it.

This is one of my favorite Andrea Marcovicci CDs. Just listen to the lyrics of these songs. They are full of emotion. I loved the songs "The Kind of Love You Never Recover From", "Strangers Once Again", "Life Goes On" by Stephen Schwartz, "Goodnight New York", and "Only Love Matters in the End". Great word from new composers. Condition of CD from CDBaby is like a brand new CD. Received it in New York in two days from California. Thanks CDBaby. And thanks Andrea.

i got hooked on AM through a consignment shop CD called What is Love. At first I thought her singing was weird but played it a few times and then wanted more. I ordered a bunch of AM CDs and NEW WORDS is now my second favorite after What is Love. The title song is worth the entire CD. It's ravishing and touching. I really liked all the songs because I hadn't heard them before and so they were all Andrea to me. Her voice is in great form on this CD.

national and personal treasure
Marcovicci knows the value of a good lyric and how to relate them in a musical conservation to the listener. The listener's part is tacit but nevertheless participatory. One should have this one and all her recordings. I do. I've seen her live maybe thirty times and treasure these CDs. This one is a replacement. And she's quite gorgeous!
