Product Description:

Originally released on Cadence.
Collectables' two-fer of Plays Birdland Lullabies/Plays Show Tunes gathers two of Don Shirley's late-'50s albums onto one CD. Shirley's elegant approach, which is equally informed by classical and jazz idioms, shines on jazz and Broadway standards such as "Lullaby of Birdland," "Body and Soul," "My Funny Valentine," and "September Song." This refined, mellow compilation features some of Shirley's most accessible, appealing work and is another worthy addition to Collectables' Shirley reissue series. ~ Heather Phares
