Sentimental Journey CD series is a strong one with lots of fine music from a wide diversity of artists. I really like the music on this albums. The sound quality is really rather good considering the age of these recordings.
Regina Carter is the most celebrated jazz violinist of our day, who has routinely been voted by critics and readers alike in the jazz magazines’ respective annual polls as the #1 Violinist for the past decade. Her first two recordings as a leader were on Atlantic Records, the second of which, titled Something for Grace, was also dedicated to her mother. With I’ll Be Seeing You: A Sentimental Journey, violinist Regina Carter, pays tribute to the memory of her late mother, Grace Carter, in a swinging journey through the some of the classic songs of the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s that her mother loved during her youth.
The tenor saxophonist Tim Warfield is pointing toward a jazz sound that reaches back 60 years in real time and a psychic millennium away in media time. You'll hear musicians playing licks on A Sentimental Journey that were comfortably modern in the late 1950s. But there's a way to do that without seeming dogmatic or conceptually forced or just left behind; jazz is a cumulative art, a continuity. ~ AllAboutJazz
Sterne is one of the most original and unexpected of writers, and A Sentimental Journey differs from other travel books as greatly as Tristram Shandy differs from other novels. Sterne travelled in France during the 1760s and drew on his experiences to write the narrative of Mr. Yorick, the Sentimental Traveller. Mr Yorick follows his Sensibility and finds pleasure in everything he does, in contrast to contemporary travel writers, Tobias Smollett in particular, whom Sterne satirizes in the figure of 'Smelfungus'.
Maureen McGovern was a secretary when she was hired by Russ Regan to sing the theme from the movie The Poseidon Adventure in 1973. It was a #1 hit. The following year, McGovern sang the theme from The Towering Inferno, "We May Never Love Like This Again," which was not a hit, though it did win an Academy Award. McGovern went on to other movie themes, then distanced herself from such work, appearing on Broadway in The Pirates of Penzance. She built a reputation as a sophisticated pop singer to the point that she was able to headline at Carnegie Hall by the '90s, singing show music and standards by George Gershwin and other songwriters
