Pam/Amazon/April 15, 2012
The sound is so good. I love the beat and as always, Toots’ voice. And I love the art work on the cover; it is really well done. May Toots live forever! He always has a new surprise for us. Jah love.

Katie Carpenter has a beautiful voice that really soars over this lovely and enchanting arrangement of “Unchained Melody.” You can tell this song is sung form the heart and is a really moving performance. Very happy I just listened to it!!! : ) ~Aiyana Cadwell (LA based singer/song-writer.)

Wall Street Journal on Alex North’s “Death of a Salesman” Score

Mr. Nichols, who saw “Death of a Salesman” performed on Broadway when he was 17 years old, never forgot the impression made on him by Mr. Mielziner’s skeletal set and Mr. North’s fragile, wistful score, and so he decided to incorporate them into his own staging 63 years later.

Read Terry Teachout on the recent revival of “Death of a Salesman” and director, Mike Nichols thoughtful reflection on Alex North’s music.
