Bringin' Out the Beast: Songs By John Meyer
John Meyer revisits the territory staked out by Cole Porter, the Gershwins and Frank Loesser. With these men as guides, John constructs new numbers observing the principles laid down by these masters: 1) Singable melodies; 2) lyrics both witty and poignant; 3) concepts striking in their originality. John has been lucky enough to attract major artists to his songs: Judy Garland, Margaret Whiting, Janis Siegel are represented here -Paula West and Shirley Bassey are off-stage; Bob Goulet is dead. If there's one over-riding emotion/quality here, it's simply ENTERTAINING FUN!
