A Grand piano, a full orchestra, and the imaginative talent of Lou Busch create languorous rhapsodies on the themes most treasured, and requested, of any popular musician. The affection and respect Lou Busch holds for these melodies is best stated by the expression he lends to them, both in his articulate piano stylings and romantic orchestrations. And in this album he plays the songs with no gimmicks, no gadgets, and no grand-standing. Played as Lou plays them – with finesse and imagination and melodic emphasis – the tunes have never sounded newer, more listenable, or more rhapsodic.
