About this Album
This single disc includes selections from Leave Your Sleep, Natalie Merchant's double-disc Nonesuch debut, on which she adapts the works of such poets as Ogden Nash, Edward Lear, and E.E. Cummings into a musically kaleidoscopic set of new songs, working with folk, jazz, reggae, and R&B players as well as gorgeously arranged chamber ensembles.
