I am clearly in the minority here but I recently listened to the CDs and found/find it a hit or miss affair. What is good is VERY GOOD, such as the songs mentioned by others and obviously this one by Liza and Billy Stritch, but then there are several that lay a complete egg such as the symphonic selections from Sweeny and a few others.

While I'm on the subject, how come Billy isn't a major superstar? Everyone he supports is always at their best when he is around (Christine Ebersol, Klea Blackhurst) and then on his own he is always terrific. His first album on DRG and his salute to Mel Torme are favorites and I am going to get the download of his newest release. He just deserves to be a GREAT BIG Cabaret star and he isn't quite, at least not in the league of Steve Ross, and I certainly do not mean to denigrate Mr. Ross who also is great performer, deserving of his accolades.
