[Edit]

Long before Linda Ronstadt, Natalie Cole, and countless other pop, rock, and soul artists attempted to cover standards, Kenny Rankin did it and with excellent results. Enlisting the arranging talents of Don Costa (Frank Sinatra), Rankin created a lush, romantic album that also maintains the mellow vibes of '70s singer/songwriter pop. Rankin succeeds beautifully, tackling such evergreens as "Here's That Rainy Day" and "When Sunny Gets Blue." In addition, without interrupting the mood, he does beautiful readings of more contemporary artists, such as Stephen Bishop on "On and On," and particularly the Rascals on "Groovin." His moody and heartfelt rendition of "While My Guitar Gently Weeps," his second recording of the song, demonstrates once more his ability to adopt Beatles songs as his own. Of all the R&B, rock, and pop artists to work with orchestras interpreting the great American songbook, few have matched the originality and fine results of this release.
