The latest CD of theatre and pop tunes from the great Judy Kuhn. 13 songs including: Happiness/In Buddy’s Eyes; Temptation; Losing You; Forbidden Fruit; The Best Is Yet To Come, etc.
Broadway star Judy Kuhn returns with her first solo disc in nearly six years, and her most personal album to date. With All This Happiness, the three-time Tony nominee weaves together the pop songwriters and music theatre composers who’ve had the most profound influence on her; the resulting set, drawn from her sold-out performances in March of 2012 at Feinstein’s at Loews Regency, unfolds (to quote The New York Times) as “a prolonged meditation on love and happiness.” Ranging from standards to contemporary fare, the many highlights include Adam Guettel’s “Life Is But a Dream,” Joni Mitchell’s “Help Me” and “Night Ride Home,” Billy Barnes’ “Something Cool,” Leonard Cohen’s “Dance Me to the End of Love,” and Stephen Sondheim’s “In Buddy’s Eyes.” The Times hailed Kuhn as “the rare singer who can negotiate tricky folk pop lyrics, art songs and popular standards with equal authority and insight.” Now, the versatility and command of this amazing actress and singer are showcased in a new studio recording.
