Modern technology has given Barry Manilow the opportunity to record his dream duets with his own musical heroes on this album. From cherished idols like Judy Garland and Louis Armstrong to contemporary icons like Whitney Houston and John Denver, they have all joined Manilow in his virtual recording studio.The original vocal tracks for each guest artist were extracted from their original source recordings, allowing Manilow to reorchestrate the arrangements, record new musical tracks and then transport the guest vocals into vibrant new settings. In this way, he not only pays tribute to his duet partners but he also brings them into the modern era.

This CD reissues three unusual combo dates by Duke Ellington. Two of the sessions feature Ellington and his longtime musical partner Billy Strayhorn both playing piano (while assisted by either Wendell Marshall or Joe Shulman on bass and sometimes an unidentified drummer). The futuristic "Tonk" is the best-known performance but all eight numbers (which include "Cotton Tail" and "Johnny Come Lately") are quite fascinating. The remaining date has four songs that primarily serve as features for the cello of Oscar Pettiford who is accompanied by Ellington, bassist Lloyd Trotman, drummer Jo Jones and (on two tunes) the celeste of Strayhorn; "Perdido" and "Take the 'A' Train" are most memorable. Intriguing music.

The Spanish soprano Nuria Rial and the countertenor Valer Sabadus are both stars of the booming Baroque music scene.

The organ music of Philip Glass presents some of his most significant and extended minimalist works. Dance 2 and Dance 4 are the two solo organ movements of a five-part work composed in the early 1970s. The arrangement of the Act III Finale to his opera Satyagraha dates from 1980 and is one of the most famous and familiar pieces in all Glass. The sheer accuracy and concentration of Kevin Bowyer's performances guarantee that this music is heard to its best effect on the splendid 1995 Marcussen organ at Tonbridge School.

One couldn’t imagine a better opening number for the radio program The Doris Day Show than “It’s Magic,” for each week between March 1952 and May 1953, the versatile song stylist and beloved motion picture star cast a spell over listeners worldwide with an intimate gathering of famous friends filled with music and laughter. Over the course of five dozen broadcasts of The Doris Day Show recorded in Hollywood in front of a live audience and happily preserved on 16-inch transcription discs Doris joined her special guests at the piano for performances of songs she often had never commercially recorded.

“Rossini has been a revelation for me,” says Canadian contralto Marie-Nicole Lemieux. The first fruit of her exclusive Erato contract is this live recording from Montpellier of arias and duets from Tancredi, Semiramide, L’italiana in Algeri and other serious and comic operas by the composer. She is joined by soprano Patrizia Ciofi and conductor Enrique Mazzola, also her partners for a 2014 staging of Tancredi in Paris, which prompted La Croix to praise her as “a generous artist with a voice that is both ample and easily produced across its entire tessitura … from the depths to top notes that flash like a cavalier’s sabre.”

Duets & Rarities: The Gold Collection is a two-disc set collecting 40 duets and rarities (natch) featuring Frank Sinatra. Most date from the '40s, his Columbia years, and most can be found on the gargantuan 12-disc set The Columbia Years (1943-1952): The Complete Recordings. The first disc features a few intriguing duets ("New York, New York" with Gene Kelly, "A Little Learning Is a Dangerous Thing" with Pearl Bailey, "Me and My Shadow" with Sammy Davis, Jr., even the oddball "Mama Will Bark" with Dagmar), some ostensibly grabbed from radio shows. The quality is sub-standard, though, and, despite the presence of a few novelties, none but the most rabid Sinatra collectors need bother with it.
