This collection of songs was first made popular during the early 20th century, through iconic renditions by great American baritones of the past. Nelson Eddy, John Charles Thomas, Lawrence Tibbett, and Leonard Warren performed these songs on film and television, and they were often heard over the radio. Somewhere over the years, many of these songs became considered “old fashioned,” but the virtues of these classic tunes still endure today, and it’s time they were shared with new audiences. American baritone Brian Mulligan and pianist Craig Rutenberg have curated this program to represent a breadth of composers and musical styles, honoring an incredible period of music in America.



Old Fashioned collects a variety of moods in a variety of styles and tempos, each lyric lovingly explored by Mulligan’s glorious voice. You should acquire this disc right away.” - Words and Music
