what the critics are saying
 


“One of the year's 10 best.”
–USA Today


“The effect of so much artistry, talent and good taste is a collection of songs that shatter the senses and fire the spirit with a force that takes the breath away and a joy that is delightfully contagious.”
–Rex Reed


“Like Barbara Cook and Julie Andrews, Andreas is a wise storyteller who knows how to dip beneath the pretty surfaces. ”
–Time Out New York

 


Christine Andreas
The Carlyle Set

THE CARLYLE SET, Broadway star and cabaret songstress Christine Andreas’s follow-up to her acclaimed PS Classics album HERE’S TO THE LADIES, was released in 2003 on the Fynsworth Alley label but has since fallen out of print. PS Classics is proud to reissue THE CARLYLE SET, an album so musically rich, so beautifully sung and produced that USA Today picked it as one of the top ten albums of 2003, praising Andreas’s “bell-like tone” and exclaiming, “it’s refreshing to hear this material handled with the intuition and class it deserves.” Time Out New York concurred: “Like Barbara Cook and Julie Andrews, Andreas is a wise storyteller who knows how to dip beneath the pretty surfaces.” “The effect of so much artistry, talent and good taste,” wrote Rex Reed, “is a collection of songs that shatter the senses and fire the spirit with a force that takes the breath away and a joy that is delightfully contagious.” Based on Andreas’s sold-out engagement at New York’s Café Carlyle, THE CARLYLE SET features an irresistible blend of theater and pop songs, highlighted by soaring and emotive performances of such songs as the Legrand/Bergman classic “What Are You Doing the Rest of Your Life?” a heartbreaking version of Marvin Hamlisch and Ed Kleban’s “At the Ballet,” jazzy, playful takes on Lerner & Loewe’s “Show Me” and Rodgers & Hart’s “It’s Got to Be Love,” and a bittersweet take on Duke Ellington’s “In a Sentimental Mood,” among others. Already a classic recording, THE CARLYLE SET makes the perfect companion to Andreas’s HERE’S TO THE LADIES.
