Album Notes :

McMurdo's first recorded foray into a small group setting is released under our CANOPY label. As you would expect it is swinging, entertaining, contains crooning and swooning as well as some astonishing singing and playing. In this new CD, Craig has gathered together a wide range of material from the popular American songbooks by composers such as Mercer, Berlin, Rodgers & Hart, songs made famous by such singers as Sinatra, Nat King Cole , Fred Astaire and Dean Martin. He has added his ‘give it all’ own panache and style and the CD has great sing along potential with these all time classic’s.
