Album Notes
About the Music:

"Love Is ..." is a collection of musical gems that reaches out through an array of musical genres: smooth jazz, cabaret, Broadway, pop, and classic standards. The mood is soothing, thoughtful, romantic at times, funny at others, and real throughout. Marilyn Zavidow sings with richness of voice and a deep understanding of what each song means at its heart.

Marilyn has included two of her originals, "Taillights" and "You'll Be Here" in the lineup, along with songs from musical greats: Michel Legrand, James Van Heusen, Alan and Marilyn Bergman, Cole Porter, Judy Collins, George and Ira Gershwin, Stephen Sondheim, and Kurt Weill - to name a few.

The arrangements by Don Rebic and the musicians playing them are top notch:
Don Rebic - Piano and Orchestration, Carl Allen -Percussion, Gene Bertoncini - Guitar, Chip Jackson on Bass, Dave Schiavone - Saxophone and Flute, and Eric Wills - Special Percussion.

From Marilyn:

Love Is......Immense. When I think of all that Love is, I am in awe - so many meanings to so many people. Precious. Elusive. Evident. Intensely personal and yet a force of unimaginable power - transpersonal, transforming. Lost, found, so easy, so very hard.

How do we know it? When is it real? How do we live it, day to day? How do we find the strength to make the loving choice - with those closest to us, with everyone we touch?

Many wise and poetic souls have offered: Love is the answer - to everything. And after all these years I've lived, I've come to believe that, yes, this is true, simplistic as it seems at first. It is a comfort and a challenge.

I hope you enjoy these wonderful songs about Love. People are telling me that the CD makes them feel good and I hope you will feel that way, too. What more could I ask!

Love is ... -- well, you finish the sentence.

More about Marilyn Zavidow:

She has been described as an elegant performer who knows instinctively how to communicate with her audience.

Her first CD, "When You Least Expect It," was recorded in 2001 and features all original music. She has written and performed several concert shows, including her Cole Porter revue, "Port of Cole" and "Love -After All." She also is the lyricist for the children's musical, "The Princess Puzzle," writes custom corporate musical parody for business meetings and private events, and is an active producer and feature for fundraiser concerts for charities and community service organizations.

Frank E. Dee....From Gmmy Radio

In first hearing the "SAFE AND SOUND" CD of Marilyn singing, I was in a state of awe, and what came to mind was. "Who is this beautiful voice belong to??" I could not help but to air Marilyn's cd on Gmmy Radio. In hearing this sensational 'Lady' sing. I could sense from her lyrics and her delivery of the songs she wrote, that Marilyn must have went through a lot of hurt or pain. Icould be 100 percent wrong, however one needs to hear this brillian voice and he delivery and style.

My thanks go to Len Triola Promotional Services of New York for sending me this gem. It certainly will be aired often on Gmmy Radio, Broadcasting Worldwide. Thank you Len Triola.
