ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Review: Actress, humanitarian, and Great American Songbook aficionada Cynthia Basinet follows up her stunning holiday release, “The Christmas Song” with one of our most beloved musical chestnuts… "It's Only A Paper Moon". Ms. Basinet absolutely nails her unique read on a song that was penned by Harold Arlen, Billy Rose and E.Y. “Yip” Harburg, and first published in 1933. The lyrics play on our perceptions of reality vs. fantasy, and Cynthia’s compelling version ingeniously captures that quirky vibe perfectly. Adding to Ms. Basinet’s luscious vocal talent is pianist, composer, musical director Lee Musiker... This is a performance not to be missed, so my advice to you is to download your copy of Cynthia Basinet’s amazing version of "It's Only A Paper Moon". Then you can decide if your life is real or make believe! " ~SCOTT O'BRIEN (SmoothJazz.com)

SmoothJazz.com Review
Actress, humanitarian, and Great American Songbook aficionada Cynthia Basinet follows up her stunning holiday release, “The Christmas Song” with one of our most beloved evergreens… "It's Only A Paper Moon." Ms. Basinet nails her unique read on a song that was penned by Harold Arlen, Billy Rose and E.Y. “Yip” Harburg, and first published in 1933. The lyrics play on our perceptions of reality vs. fantasy, and Cynthia’s version ingeniously captures that vibe perfectly. Is she really the singer, or is it Marilyn Monroe, or is it a love struck young lady suddenly realizing she exists in The Matrix? You be the judge, but don’t miss Cynthia Basinet’s amazing version of "It's Only A Paper Moon"!
