ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Some of the finest songs I’ve ever heard. Charles Bloom is one of the most gifted composer/lyricists in our industry. His work is a constant reminder of what great songwriting was and is."
— Peter Filichia, TheaterMania

Charles Bloom's music is a unique blend of sensibilities; a command of melody that evokes the Great American Songbook, paired with lyric writing of a more contemporary bent. By turns wry, witty, warm, poignant and ironic, his songs take us on a journey through the human condition, from the challenges of relationships to piqued observations and self discovery.

Brought to life by a live 18-piece orchestra conducted by David Snyder, and realized by Broadway luminaries such as Christine Ebersole (Grey Gardens, 42nd St.), Howard McGillin (Phantom of the Opera), Gregory Jbara (Billy Elliot), Jill Paice (Curtains), Aaron Lazar (Les Miserables), David Burnham (A Light in the Piazza), Vicki Lewis (Chicago), Jason Graae (Falsettos), Liz Larsen (Most Happy Fella), John Dossett (Newsies), Nikki Renee Daniels (Porgy and Bess), Josh Grisetti (Broadway Bound, Enter Laughing), and Claybourne Elder (Bonnie and Clyde), these performances are definitive. Each tells its own story, fully inhabited by clearly drawn, passionate characters.

Some of the songs are just plain fun. "A Children's Traditional" is a dramatic new take on a time-honored classic, and "Christmas and You," as sung by Ashley Fox Linton, recalls the great holiday standards. Christy Faber and her backup boys ask "Why Don't You Love Me Like That?," and Damon Kirsche gives us "You're As Good As It Gets," which is - when it comes to a pure love song - about as good as it gets.

If you are a fan of musical theatre, or of popular music that is both intelligent and emotionally evocative, you will truly appreciate this album. The CD booklet is a full 16 pages, with all of the lyrics printed in their entirety. You will want to savor them as you listen, for this is a one-of-a-kind recording, from a one-of-a-kind writer.

"In Here", in All of Us
I fell in love with Charles Bloom’s songs way back in the eighties at showcases produced at “The Rose Tattoo”, everybody’s favorite little cabaret in WeHo. His collaborators have always been among the top in their fields and this collection of songs shows that little has changed; Charlie remains in great company.

Under the expert guiding hand of Mr. David Snyder, the songs come alive in ways I’m sure Charlie himself must have heard in his head when he first composed them. The arrangements, with just the right balance of richness and spark are among some of David’s finest.

Where every song tells a story and every singer plays a part, the cast that Charlie and David have assembled for this recording is astounding. Many of the names may be familiar to you, and those that are not will surely go on your list of artists to watch for. This is an extraordinary collection of cabaret material with the perfect blend of blues, bluster, wit and heart.

As favorites go, I have always been partial to the tune and the tale of “The Straits of Magellan”, brought masterfully to life here by Claybourne Elder. “A Children’s Traditional” is a song that will end up on many favorites lists and the work of Vicki Lewis here is staggeringly funny. The legendary Lee Lucas was the first one I ever heard sing the titular, “In Here”, in the Charles Bloom musical revue, “Insomnia”. His soaring vocals came to mind as I listened to Aaron Lazar, whose voice is well suited to the demands, both vocally and emotionally of this song and whose performance stands second only to that of the late Lee Lucas, himself. Most gratifying, though is, “To See You Happy”, a song, a message, and a voice seemingly sent by the angels and rendered so by David Burnham.

I defy anyone to be unmoved after hearing this disc. It really is that good!
