I am a big fan of Emmy Rossum ever since seeing her in Phantom of the Opera. She is a beautiful, talented young woman whose voice seems so much more mature than her 27 years so it was no surprise when I saw that she was putting out a CD of classics from the 20s. I love the look and music of the 20s so was really eager to listen to this CD.
“Sentimental Journey” (Les Brown, Ben Homer, Arthur Green)
“The Object Of My Affection” (Pinky Tomlin)
“I’m Looking Over A Four Leaf Clover “(Mort Dixon, Harry M. Woods)
“These Foolish Things (Remind Me Of You)” (Eric Maschwitz, Jack Strachey)
“(I’ll Be With You) In Apple Blossom Time” (Albert Von Tilzer, Neville Fleeson)
“Summer Wind” (Heinz Meier, Johnny Mercer)
“Many Tears Ago” (Winfield Scott)

“Autumn Leaves” (Joseph Kosma, Jacques Prévert)
“Things” (Bobby Darin)
“Pretty Paper” (Willie Nelson)
Bonus Track: Keep Young and Beautiful (Harry Warren, Al Dubin)
We loved quite a few but there were some we weren't that into. We didn't like the first three tracks but everything after that we adored. This is the kind of music I listen to in the car on many long drive occasions, so my kids are very familiar with it. Goddess says Autumn Leaves were her favorite. Personally I loved Summer Wind. It is one of my favorite songs and thought she did a great job! If you love beautiful instrumentals with lovely vocals, you will love this!
