LUSH LIFE follows in the footsteps of WHAT’S NEW, more post WWII standards and jazz classics.
The CD is worth the price alone for her captivating performance, and one of the best versions I’ve heard of ˝Skylark˝.
LUSH LIFE once again shows Ronstadt as the interpreter, she ranges from playful and sassy to romantic.
LUSH LIFE has more uptempo numbers than WHAT’S NEW did, but she sounds at ease with the material here, joined beautifully by Nelson Riddle and his Orchestra.
She also does a nice simple version of ˝When I Fall In Love˝. Other highlights include ˝Mean To me˝, ˝You Took Advantage of me˝, ˝I’m A Fool To Want You˝ and ˝Lush Life˝. Go out and get it!
