what the critics are saying

“For collectors and longtime fans of this material, this is nostalgic nirvana...[a] charming album. ”
–Talkin' Broadway

“Demonstrates why [Martin] can be deemed Broadway’s best vocal arranger ever.”

Hugh Sings Martin
Songwriter Series

From the liner notes:

"As a composer, his songs have that rare combination of inevitability and surprise that is the mark of true greatness. He writes tunes that are gracious, and seem not to be written but found, as though they have always existed. He has a rhythmic drive that propels; and he swings! As a lyricist, he can be tender and poetic, or as witty and clever as Lorenz Hart at his most sophisticated and risque.

This new CD is by no means an overview of his work; the contents are drawn primarily from private demos and radio broadcasts, and most of these date from early in his career. But hopefully, with this collection, his profile will be heightened and admirers increased."

–Mark Horwitz, Music Division, Library of Congress
