The Maury Yeston Songbook
The Tony Award-winning composer/lyricist -- who's given us the smash hit musicals Titanic, Phantom and Grand Hotel, and whose first stage show, Nine, is currently being revived in New York with Antonio Banderas -- is celebrated in song by the best stars o

Despite racking up Tony nominations and/or box-office success with Nine, Grand Hotel, and Titanic, Maury Yeston remains a relatively unknown Broadway auteur. And yet, what a fabulous songwriter he is. Listen to "Home," for instance: This excerpt from Phantom (the other adaptation of Phantom of the Opera) has great melodic hooks, along with natural sweep and unrestrained emotion. Like every song on this CD, it also has such dramatic drive that it easily stands on its own outside of its regular narrative frame. This collection of new recordings provides an excellent overview of Yeston's talent, juxtaposing numbers from his three best-known scores (though there's only one from Titanic) with rarities and a generous selection from his 1991 song cycle December Songs. Christine Ebersole, Liz Callaway, and Betty Buckley turn in expectedly strong performances, but watch also for Laura Benanti (the star of the 2003 revival of Nine), Christine Andreas, and Foster Sutton, who completely make the material theirs. --Elisabeth Vincentelli

When General Douglas MacArthur, Allied Supreme Commander of the Far East stepped down on the tarmac of the Atsugi Airfield, he took a look around and decided it would be the right airfield for the United States to use for the incoming occupation forces. He did not have to consult with the Congress or the President; nor did he ask the Supreme Court for any particular review. He had stated that the "...proceeding were finished" when he had received the surrender aboard the U.S.S. Missouri. Now a proceeding of another kind were beginning. He told his driver to take him to his floor at the New Grand Hotel in Yokohama. He had called ahead, but reservations were already made. Somehow, the staff sensed he would be arriving sooner or later. Thus, the New Grand was the initial headquarters of one of the world's military geniuses of the last century. There was a large mahogony bar overlooking the waterfront. I do not know if he had a drink at the bar, but rest assured, there were military men who were sipping some Jack Daniels and Cutty Sark. The media would not arrive for awhile, not until the General requested they arrive with cameras. There are many stories about the New Grand; I enjoyed listening to them from men who had been with MacArthur on the day he arrived. I regret that I didn't listen more carefully now. Nevertheless, it was a kind of connection with an era that has long faded. What MacArthur did was one giant miracle; he did what numerous committees of politicians could never have done. He had been trained to be a leader. He did his job well. It was politics that ended his career.

Brooklyn-based duo Matt and Kim return with Grand, their second album and first in over two years. During the period in between records the duo has toured extensively and developed a loyal and growing fan base that eagerly awaits the release of Grand. The band spent the last nine months recording and tweaking Grand in between tour dates.

The result is an album that takes the band's musicianship and songwriting to the next level and also serves as a glowing representation of how far Matt and Kim have come since their debut. From the anthemic opener 'Daylight' to the harmony-rich, atmospheric ballad 'Turn This Boat Around' and demented pop of 'I Wanna,' Grand is quite literally the sound of Matt and Kim discovering their voice.

'All of the songs on the last album we wrote the first year we learned how to play our instruments,' Matt acknowledged, 'but this one is much more diverse and instead of thinking about the songs we thought of the album as a whole, too.'
