There is nothing to criticize here and plenty to enjoy. As with previous releases in this series, the playing of Florilegium is the last word in graciousness and elegance, and the music itself is unfailingly inventive and charming. I’m thinking in particular of the quietly humorous “Distrait” movement from the Sixth Quartet, with its delicious echo effects at the ends of phrases, or the gorgeous Courante from the B-minor suite. The Fourth Quartet shares the same key, and its “Triste” also represents one of the disc’s highlights. In fact, three of the four works here feature minor keys, the exception being the A major quartet No. 5, with its opening Vivement prelude and two sections marked “Gai” (though one of them is only “un peu”).
"Yes It's You Lady" is a 1982 album by American singer Smokey Robinson. As 1981's Being with You it was produced by George Tobin in association with Mike Piccirillo and recorded and mixed at Studio Sound Recorders, North Hollywood, California. It was released on the Motown sub-label Tamla. The album was peaking at #33 in Billboard pop charts, and at #6 on the R&B charts. The two follow-up singles to 1981's chart success' "Being with you" were strangely no Robinson compositions: "Tell Me Tomorrow" peaked at #33 Billboard and #3 R&B charts, "Old Fashioned Love" at #60 Billboard and #17 R&B charts. The third and final single, Robinson's "Yes It's You Lady" only peaked at #107 Billboard, without entering the R&B charts.
"Misterioso (Recorded on Tour)" is a live album by Thelonious Monk, released for Columbia Records. It was recorded at various locations on tour.
John Price is a virtuoso pianist who captures the verve and pulse of these Broadway songs. The piano is electric and the phrasing is like no other I've heard. Just a stellar album. If you love this music, you MUST have this album.
