This Time The Dream's On Me
Scot Weir, tenor
Jan Czajkowski, piano
Catalog number 21034
Scot Weir has made a name for himself especially as a Lied and Oratorio singer. For this recording with the young pianist Jan Czajkowski he withdrew to his house in the Rocky Mountains and recorded American “classics” by Cole Porter, George Gershwin, Harold Arlen and Jerome Kern. The result is a very personal interpretation which shows Weir to be a wonderful performer of popular music as well.
“Jan Czaikowski was certainly not all too challenged as a piano accompanist on this CD. However the arrangements, which are all by him, serve to underline the compositional demands of such ‘entertaining’ pieces. Weir crowns them with the noblesse of a Lied singer, while at the same time giving the production a pronounced ‘American’ feel.“
