Stranger In A Dream: Review

Together Weber and Sullivan sound much like a well cemented duo. They leave nothing to chance. There are some of the most thorough liner notes to make the listening all the more delightful.” – Dan Singer, In Tune Magazine

“Stacy Sullivan is a rising Jazz/Cabaret superstar and one of the preeminent interpreters of the Peggy Lee Songbook.” Steve Schonberg, NBC Today In New York

Robert D. Rusch’s Review

Harbinger Records has also issued STACY SULLIVAN [voc]: STRANGER IN A DREAM [hcd 3201], a homage to Marian McPartland. The 17 titles [47:45] here are all drawn from material played on McPartland’s Piano Jazz show over its 33 year run on NPR. 8 of the works are McPartland’s, the rest are better known standards. Sullivan, other than having a resemblance to Diana Krall, does not project a jazz singer, on her opening track, Sondheim’s “Loving You” she seems very much at home as a theatre­cum­cabaret singer. Even on an uptempo jazz composition such as “Lullaby Of Birdland” she sings it nicely but does not convey a jazz singer. Most of the music here is medium or down tempo, she has a breathy delivery that is clearly enunciated. Backup is Jon Weber [p/arr], Nick Russo [gtr/mand] and bassist Steve Doyle.
