Lost In a Crowded Place

NEW CD!

Order at Audiophile Records.

Daryl is the quintessential seeker, finding immense pleasure probing the oeuvre of America’s most beloved and respected composers. One would think there is little left to discover, but Daryl’s tenacity and perseverance once again find the archival equivalent of 18K gold. A quick glance at the titles will inspire our shared delight in the joy of hearing melodies and lyrics which have been hiding in the shadows. And we needn’t make any effort at all. Daryl has done all the heavy lifting for us, and quite skillfully too. All we need do is sit back and savor the fruits of her research as the generous gifts they are… Let us safely assume Daryl will continue to locate many more gems on her endless quests into the countless unopened or forgotten treasure chests of American popular song. We can but live in eager anticipation. -Carol Sloane

From the start, it’s a wonderful chance to hear Daryl — “her ownself” — as we might say in the Middle West a century ago.  She is of course her own splendid accompanist, and her two selves never get in each other’s way.  And I would direct some pianists who revere Tatum as their model to her spare, pointed accompaniment… read the full review

There are some names that tell you what to expect and as always Daryl Sherman’s name on an album heralds a delightful experience. This set, recorded in New York City and released on the Japanese Muzak, Inc. label, is a special treat for all of this exceptional singing-pianist’s many fans. Here, Daryl plays and sings a delightful selection of songs, ranging through standards, show tunes, rarely heard work by songwriting masters… read the full review

…It is a pretty intimate, very close-up performance with just her singing and playing the piano and bassist Harvie Swartz accompanying her on two tracks. The pure joy in the arrangement for “Wouldn’t It Be Loverly” is one of the highlights of the album as is the engineering which I know can be a drag with only vocal and piano. So thanks also to Malcolm Addey who worked for the Abbey Road studios as well… read the full review

‘I Walk A Little Faster’ …you sing it so seriously cutely… dee-lightful!
And all over this album… one of your best… and Mr S sounds so good with you! Sunday I’m playing ‘Harsh Mistress Moon”…
Michael Bourne, Singers Unlimited, WBGO FM

Thank you! Transporting in every way. A masterpiece.

Received your album “My Blue Heaven” several days ago & I’ve listened to it a bunch of times… It’s a fascinating recording… very mellow with lots of tunes that are seldom done including your original “Cycling Along With You” which I could really get to love. Half of the tunes were totally new to me… ”Lets Go Live In A Lighthouse”… I mean where to you find tunes like this? My absolute favorite on the recording is “Inside A Silent Tear” which I know has been done a number of times but I love your version; it’s a beauty.Frank Wilner, WNHN 94.7 FM “Voices In Jazz”
