In her seventh album for DRG, Karen Akers takes on the magical song catalog of the celebrated tunesmith JULE STYNE, known for such familiar standards as "People, "Just In Time," "Three Coins in the Fountain," "The Party's Over," "Make Someone Happy" and the Broadway score to "Gypsy."
Description: Ms. Akers recently triumphed in New York at the Oak Room of the Algonquin Hotel with a sold out, critically-acclaimed six week engagement in which Stephen Holden of The New York Times said "You might describe 'Simply Styne,' as a moving, witty cabaret answer to 'Scenes From a Marriage." Theatremania proclaimed 'Simply Styne' "enchanting!"
Accompanied by Don Rebic (piano) and Dick Sarpola (bass).
