This 2006 installment in Decca's COMPOSERS ON BROADWAY compilation series focuses on the showtunes of Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein, featuring classic stage numbers from THE SOUND OF MUSIC, FLOWER DRUM SONG, and more. Highlights include Carol Burnett's silly, sassy "I Can't Say No" (from OKLAHOMA!) and Gertrude Lawrence's bright, breezy rendition of "Getting to Know You" (from THE KING AND I). This installment, like all others in the series, is a lovely introductions to a pair of key contributors to the American Songbook.
