New Music: Jo Stafford

AUTUMN IN NEW YORK AND OTHER CLASSICS is actually old music, being reissued on April 21st.

The album features Jo Stafford, who passed away last summer, performing one song after another from the Great American Songbook.

The tracks include "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes," "If I Loved You," and "Almost Like Being in Love."

I really love Capitol album cover art of the '50s. Covers such as this are so striking and evocative of the era...they provide listeners with something to enjoy before they've ever heard the album's first notes of music.

Thanks for this. Jo Stafford is one of my favorites.
