ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
No CD collection would be complete without "As Time Goes By: The Best of Andrea Marcovicci". Some of Andrea’s most requested songs are here including "The Folks Who Live on the Hil", "Two For The Road" and "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes". Beginning in 1988 with "Marcovicci Sings Movies" and ending with two never before recorded tracks, "The Lies of Handsome Men" and "Young at Heart", this CD features material from six out-of-print CDs, (Marcovicci Sings Movies; What is Love?; Just Kern; Always, Irving Berlin; Live From London; and the Mabel Mercer tribute, Some Other Time) and two soon to be out-of-print discs (New Words and Here There and Everywhere) and the still available If I Were a Bell ~ The Songs of Frank Loesser. Songwriters represented include Irving Berlin, William Finn, Oscar Hammerstein, Jerome Kern, Henry Mancini, Cole Porter and Maury Yeston among others. Andrea’s voice, sultry at times, exudes warmth on these selections and the material is Marcovicci at her most tender, most romantic, and most captivating. The stories that Andrea shares for the12-page color booklet (included in the original jewel case) are surprising and delightful. Like this one for "After You, Who?", “We chose this one by Cole Porter because no other song so perfectly captures the deliciously painful moment when you realize that you’ve met Mr. Right – but that you’re so worried about losing him you can’t have fun anyway!” A full-color PDF of the booklet is now available on our website!

DIVA TALK: "Best of Marcovicci"

By Andrew Gans
05 Jun 2009

FOR THE RECORD: "As Time Goes By: The Best of Andrea Marcovicci"

It's hard to believe that the perennially youthful cabaret favorite Andrea
Marcovicci, a long-time fixture at the Oak Room of New York's Algonquin
Hotel, recently celebrated her 60th birthday. True to form, the singing
actress marked that milestone in high style: with a star-studded concert at
Manhattan's Town Hall and the release of a career retrospective CD, "As Time
Goes By: The Best of Andrea Marcovicci."

The 17-track disc, now available on the AndreaSong label, features tunes
from nine previous Marcovicci recordings - "Marcovicci Sings Movies"; "What
Is Love?"; "Just Kern"; "Always, Irving Berlin"; "New Words"; "Live From
London"; "Some Other Time, Marcovicci Sings Mabel Mercer"; "Here, There and
Everywhere"; and "If I Were a Bell: The Songs of Frank Loesser" - as well as
two newly recorded songs: "Lies of Handsome Men" and "Young at Heart."

It was Marcovicci's premiere recording, the aforementioned "Marcovicci Sings
Movies" album (1988), that made a life-long fan out of this theatre writer.
At the time I was hosting a college radio program at Brandeis University,
and I still remember purchasing the record in Harvard Square and promptly
heading back to the small radio station, where I was thrilled by the
singer's clear, reedy tones, a wonderful mix of Broadway belting and the
more ethereal sounds of a folk singer. Marcovicci's skills as a lyrical
interpreter were also evident; I was particularly taken by her renditions of
the "Tootsie" charmer "It Might Be You," her full-voiced "Here Lies Love"
and the moving "Someone to Love." Four other impressive tracks from that
debut recording are included on "The Best of Andrea Marcovicci": "As Time
Goes By," "On Such a Night as This," "Two for the Road" and "The Folks Who
Live on the Hill."

Other highlights of the compilation recording include three gems from "What
Is Love?" (the heartbreaking "After You, Who?," the joyous "Beyond Compare"
and perhaps the greatest recording of the pop standard "These Foolish
Things" out there); a haunting pairing of the little-heard "The Touch of
Your Hand" with "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes"; a wonderful song cycle that
incorporates four Irving Berlin tunes: "Say It Isn't So," "What'll I Do,"
"Remember" and "Suppertime"; and Maury Yeston's touching "New Words."

Executive produced by Marcovicci and produced by Lesley Alexander, the CD
includes a full-color booklet with extensive notes by the singer about her
song choices for her newest recording.

"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.
