Johnny Mercer – A Centennial Tribute

Even seasoned Mercer fans will find some new treasures here, revealed by that indefatigable guide to the Great American Songbook, Daryl Sherman. A musician as well as a singer, Daryl has a special affinity for Mercer and has been no stranger to his work. … Johnny Mercer, I’m certain, would have loved Daryl Sherman’s tribute, which avoids the obvious and illuminates the full range of his legacy. I doubt there’ll be a better one.

– Dan Morgenstern, Director of Rutgers University’s Institute of Jazz Studies
