Romantic Ballads with Tom Shell

Somewhere in Time* Without a Song
All The Things You Are Once Upon A Time
A Foggy Day* What'll I Do
Thinking of You This Nearly Was Mine
Again Where or When
Time After Time You'll Never Know
My Foolish Heart You're Nearer
I Have Dreamed The Last Dance
A Nightingale Sang in Berkley Sq. Till Tomorrow

“Nearer” and the reissue of “My Foolish Heart”, both have one thing in common – some of the most beautiful melodies and lyrics ever written.

There were two events that led to recording this music with Tom Shell on panio. First, I’d purchased a Roberta Flack CD, which had “My Foolish Heart” on it and was entranced by the song. Then I saw Gloria Loring live sing “Once upon a Time” and was moved to tears (happy ones). Ballads have always been my strong point. I love to be moved and move others with the framework of a well-penned song.

Days before the recording session, I was very sick. So, dizzy with pain, I focused all my strength and emotion on writing lyrics to “Somewhere in Time”, with the remarkable movie as my inspiration.

Young & Foolish

Night and Day An Affair to Remember
S'Wonderful If I Had You
Young at Heart Moonlight in Vermont
Young and Foolish Fly Me To The Moon
Lullabye of Birdland Sleep My Love*
Jamica Farewell Darn That Dream
A Mother's Dream I'll Never Stop Loving You
You are Woman, I am Man Our Love Is Here To Stay
You'd Be So Nice to Come Home To

This was the first time I worked with Andy Armer, the jazz pianist. We sat down to figure out what to plan, and he asked me if I knew “Night and Day”. I said I think I know it, but I’ve never sung it. So with a rehearsal tape rolling we gave it a go. Well, all those years of improvisation paid off, and we did it on the first take! It has a “live” feel.

“Darn that Dream” on the other hand took some experimentation. I think that because I’d sung it for so long I was looking for a change. It all came together when Greg Byers layed down the trumpet parts.

One element always present on my albums is at least one Peggy Lee song or arrangement. I became friends with her in the late 1980’s and always follow her mantra, “I will never sing a song devoid of hope.” On the tune “S’ Wonderful” you’ll notice my phrasing sounds suspiciously like Peggy’s. I learned from the best!

Being that some of my fans want lots of jazzy tempos and others ask for mostly ballads, “Young and Foolish” ended up with a great mix and variety, I think.

The Girl from Ipanema

The Girl From Ipanema I may be Wrong
There Will Never Be Another You Till
Wade in the Water September in the Rain
I could Write a Book Blue Moon
Sephra* The Best Things in Life are Free
Long Ago and Far Away Moonlight Becomes You

"September in the Rain", the first song chosen for this album, I discovered in an old stack of 78's, and was recorded by Frankie Lane. The beat of his version made em go "Yippee" and feel happy. When Mort Lindsey came in with his incredible chord structure of the tune I loved it even more.

I often listen to old arrangement (tried and true) for inspiration. In the case of the title song, “Girl from Ipanema”, I pretty much used Tony Hatch’s 1966 arrangement for Petula Clark. It is still fresh. We did add some of our own touches ala my buddy Greg Byers’ Herb Alpert style trumpet section.

The best part about doing this album was the inspiring presence of a humble musical genius, Mort Lindsey. I thank God I was able to talk him into working with me.

It was my good fortune to b able to help put out a brush fire this past summer. It was my misfortune to get pneumonia from smoke inhalation. Believe it or not, this album came about but for the grace of God for giving me the power to persevere through all the pain. I am so proud of this album, and like Mort Lindsey said, “We will keep playing it even after Christmas.” That was the whole idea behind the album!

Irish Lullaby Rock-a- bye Baby

Goodnight My Someone When I Grow Too Old to Dream
A Child's Prayer

For five years or more I searched antique stores, flea markets, yard sales and music stores to find songs for my lullaby album. I thought a collection of soothing songs with harp music would help the young and young at heart to sleep. It worked! I've received letters from pet owners, businessmen with high stress jobs, people with sleep disorders, and grateful parents for helping them relax and sleep.

In addition to many classic songs, including Brahms Lullaby, Lullaby of the Leaves, and Irish Lullaby, I wrote "Sleep my Love" and "There's a new little twig in our family tree" - the title came from a poem written by my great aunt, Lola, for her baby boy. I must warn you, however. You probably shouldn't play this album while you're driving.

Details Inside

Details Inside Murphy and Wheeler
Second To One Rita Return
I Give You My Love If I Could Have My Way
Pity Party Shy Girl
Take Back Your Heart She's Still Here

The title song is a country version of a recording from my late 1980’s MTV video. Another song that got a lot of airtime in Texas, and is used as an anthem for fallen state troopers is “Murphy and Wheeler”. This song was written to honor the two troopers who lost their lives at the hands of the infamous Bonnie and Clyde.

There are some good line-dance tunes on “Details” as well as many beautiful ballads. All the songs on this CD I either wrote myself or co-wrote with Alice McHugit. Clay Smith produced the Album
