Anything Goes is a rare offering by two of music’s most revered masters – trumpeter Herb Alpert and vocalist Lani Hall. The recording is a collection of great songs which were recorded live at venues throughout America and is their first project together as well as their debut recording for Concord Records.
Reinterpretations of such Great American Songbook standards as “Fascinating Rhythm” “That Old Black Magic” “Let’s Face The Music and Dance,” the title track “Anything Goes” and ” I’ve Got You Under My Skin” are sure to envelope you, dear listener, in the warm array of emotions often associated with these songs. Hall’s vocals are versatile, inviting and earthy and have that special cabaret feeling that causes the audience to respond often and with warm appreciation.
Alpert is the perfect foil for Hall’s voice, there in an instant to fill in the nuance and colors. Anything Goes has something for everyone and is sure to invite their devoted fans back into a brand new musical lair.
