The Sandy Bainum collection “Simply” is – simply – a knockout!

“There is not one track on the album that is not brilliantly sung and perfectly and uniquely arranged. Rodgers & Hart’s “Where or When” is dressed in a great, fresh tempo – delightful. Sandy’s version of “A Cockeyed Optimist makes you long to see her as Nellie Forbush. “Goodnight My Someone” as well, conjuring up a vision of her in a “Music Man” revival. The Helen Reddy 70s hit “You and Me Against the World” is lusciously revived. The Fields and Schwartz classic “Make the Man Love Me” becomes something new thanks to Sandy Bainum’s reading and a sparkling arrangement.”
