  • About This Album

    For his Nonesuch debut, legendary singer-songwriter Newman revisits earlier work via this piano-and-voice solo set. The collection, says the Chicago Sun-Times, offers “an intimate, seamless and seemingly effortless stroll through some of the highlights and obscurities in his catalogue.” Interview magazine calls it "an austere and moving piece of work ... [T]he songs, some going back 35 years, sound absolutely fresh.”
