Kritzerland is so pleased to announce the re-release of a brilliant jazz cover version of The Fantasticks, the longest-running musical in history, with a great score by the late Harvey Schmidt and lyricist Tom Jones. Originally released in 2001 and out of print for at least fourteen years, the album features the incredible Trotter Trio, comprised of pianist Terry Trotter, bass player Tom Warrington, and drummer Joe LaBarbera, along with very special guests Maureen McGovern and the one and only Harvey Schmidt.
Harvey passed away last year and we’ll be releasing a few albums in tribute to him. You’ll hear the classic songs, “Try to Remember,” “Soon It’s Gonna Rain,” “They Were You,” and many others. Terry Trotter is best known as the long-time pianist for Natalie Cole, and equally for his classic series of Sondheim in Jazz albums for producer Bruce Kimmel, who produced this album. Terry’s arrangements are Fantastick, his playing goes from poetic and sensitive to swinging with the best of them. The great cover art is, of course, done especially for this album by Harvey Schmidt. If you love The Fantasticks, or just love great jazz, this album is a must-have. -KRITZERLAND
