ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Johnny Mercer and I are from different generations, musically speaking, and yet I feel a great kinship with his songs. Part of that comes from having grown up in the South, as he did, and having a natural appreciation of his turns of phrase. They sound like what Southerners hear each other say all the time, only better. And quite often he could say what all of us, wherever we're from, have felt but could not put into words.

He was a lyricist who used his own melodies to wonderful effect, but his most mysterious and moving songs are collaborations with composers as varied as Hoagy Carmichael, Harold Arlen, and Henry Mancini. One of the great jogs of making this record was to explore the range of Mercer's talent, and imagine that I might acquaint (or reacquaint) listeners with his gifts, in my own way.
