Meade asked if I was interested in recording some additional Harold
Arlen music for a re-release of my Out of this World McGovern
Sings Arlen CD. An enthusiastic "Yes!" was my response!
I LOVE Harold Arlen's music!
Since his centennial celebration is around the corner, I'm thrilled
to add two new bonus cuts to this
collection - personal Arlen favorites of mine. Jeff Harris' romantic
chamber arrangement of "Let's Fall
In Love," captures the essence of the self-titled
1934 film and his wistful adaptation of "Optimistic
Voices" from "The Wizard of Oz" breathes
new life into this favorite little gem from my childhood.
hope you enjoy listening to this Arlen tribute as much as we enjoyed
recording it! Harold Arlen's music takes me OUT OF THIS WORLD!!!
