Anne Kerry Ford's "Weill"

SOURCE: Published: | 1,754 views
Actress/singer Anne Kerry Ford has been passionate about Kurt Weill's music since appearing with Sting in “The Threepenny Opera" on Broadway, so performing with the famed WDR Big Band in Cologne,Germany's Philharmonic Hall under the musical direction of legendary arranger/musician Roger Kellaway was a dream-come-true. In Weill, she presents fifteen songs from Kurt Weill's German and American songbooks (as well as the French “Youkali", sung here in rarely-heard English translation), holding her own in front of the mighty sound of WDR's brilliant 28 pieces.

Included are several intimate arrangements: the humorous “Tango Ballad" duet with Broadway singer Brian Lane Green and the lovely ballads “My Ship", “It Never Was You" and “Lost in the Stars". Weill was produced by her husband, guitarist Robben Ford, who is also featured.
