Barbara Fasano's musical forte is cabaret music, yet the album is fashioned with a jazz sensibility. The ensemble is led by pianist/ arranger John DiMartino, and it includes bassist Sean Smith (who was the third musician present at the above mentioned Fasano-Comstock Show), tenor and soprano player Joel Frahm, trumpet/flugelhorn player Tim Ouimette, guitarist John Hart and drummer Tim Horner. Eric Comstock joins Fasano on a light-hearted duet version of As Long As I Live." The shading and solo opportunities from DiMartino, Frahm, Ouimette and Hart serve to make this a far more jazz-related album.
Each musical genre has examples of albums that demand repeated listening and appreciation. In terms of the Great American Songbook, this is one of them!"
