Got a Little Rhythm
BRIDGE 9430


$ 14.99

Although they have strong ties to the world of classical music, on this stellar CD, Amy Burton, Patrick Mason and John Musto turn in loving performances of 19 pop songs from the Great American Songbook. "Got a Little Rhythm" covers roughly a century of America's musical styles and attitudes, with juggernauts from many of the revered masters (Gershwin, Berlin, Porter, Kern, and Rodgers) as well as composers as disparate as Nat Ayer and Fred Hirsch.


It’s always fun when friends get together to make music. And that’s exactly what this intimately-recorded release sounds like. Baritone Patrick Mason is a long-time collaborator with both Musto and Burton, and the easy camaraderie of these three comes across in the release. I’m glad Bridge Records let us sit in on the fun.” - Finding Beauty in Ephemera


Devotees and newcomers alike will savour these 19 selections from the American Songbook. Soprano Amy Burton sails through the wide-ranging forms and styles with nearly perfect pitch, while baritone Patrick Mason displays power when needed and quiet introspection as wanted. There’s a wealth of repertoire begging for this standard of faithful realization.” - JWR
