  • about this album

    For the first in his Songbook Series of albums for Nonesuch, Michael Feinstein is accompanied by Burton Lane, the composer of such classic shows as Babes on Broadway and Finian's Rainbow, on some of Lane's best-known tunes, plus two new songs."Whether performing new material or old," says the Chicago Tribune, "the Lane-Feinstein recording evokes the ebullient, hard-sell world of Tin Pan Alley. With Feinstein singing his heart out and Lane firing off brilliant, fiercely syncopated accompaniments on piano, one might think the heyday of the songplugger had never ended."
