ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Vern Sutton, tenor
Keith Weber, piano

In the words of Garrison Keillor, "Vern Sutton is a gifted and big-hearted singer and performer, the guy you'd want to sing "Abide With Me" at your grandma's funeral and also the guy who, if you'd composed an opera in which Max, a World War I aviator with Tourette's, roller-skates onstage and rassles a bison while singing a twelve-tone aria in German, you'd want to play Max."

When taking your first glance at the program of one of our song recitals, you might think that the typist had made a mistake or that some malfunctioning software combined the programs of several different singers or that we've simply lost our minds. It's actually the result of the happy coming-together of our odd, unusual, rich performing backgrounds; our sense of mission in reviving, for both the new and the seasoned concert-goer, the vitality of our favorite medium, the song recital; our deep belief that there is great music in every style; and the gratifying discovery that it is possible for us together to express and even make sense of all the things mixed together in our backgrounds.

For thirteen years, Vern Sutton was a regular guest on Garrison Keillor's original "A Prairie Home Companion" on American Public radio. As s singer and actor, he has sung over 60 different roles, and for thirty years has been producer of the opera program at the University of Minnesota.

Keith Weber is known throughout the nation for his unique musical versatility as organist, pianist, harpsichordist, collaborator, conductor, coach, and choral clinician.

20 Songs well done
Vern Sutton sings these songs with a knowledge and understanding that raises experiencing them above the ordinary. The accompanist plays well enough but the recording seems to have captured quite a bit of lead-foot syndrome. But the variety of repertoire and enthusiasm in presenting them are palpable.

The song on this album by Dominick Argento (track #4)is worth the whole price of admission. I wish I could get my hands on the the entire piece. I was driving down the freeway shaking my fist in agreement as I listened to the lyrics. Argento and Sutton are my heroes!
The other songs are good too. You can understand every word. Everything Vern Sutton sings makes sense. His accompanist is el primo top notch. I can't believe I only blew 10 bucks on this CD, it's worth a lot more.
I'm not even done listening to the whole CD but I had to say something.
