This all-new studio recording is Barbara Cook’s 14th solo album and a loving tribute to her longtime partner, collaborator and friend Wally Harper, who died this past fall.
In 1974 Miss Cook began a creative partnership with Mr. Harper – a well-known musical arranger, accompanist, composer, dance arranger and conductor in his own right. This was a shining model of artistic collaboration and enduring friendship. Numerous recordings mark the journey of this unique twenty-five year partnership, including 10 albums on the DRG label.
The song selections are culled from Miss Cook’s recent engagement at the Café Carlyle.
