Best 10 of High Quality Recording in 2nd half of 2000 (Stereo magazine)

This unique CD recording produced by the Japanese label, MusicScape, features the internationally renown Philippine musical actress/concert singer, Monique Wilson, and covers sixteen well-known Gershwin songs. The songs of Gershwin have been frequently recorded not only by such great jazz singers as Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, and Rosemary Clooney, but also by a number of fine opera singers. However, a Gershwin album sung by a musical actress of Asian origin has perhaps never been produced before this recording. Wilson’s extensive singing career in London, her ability to grasp with accuracy the emotion and intelligence within a Gershwin song, along with the natural beauty of her voice, enable her to create an extremely fresh expression that her predecessors have overlooked. This debut album of Monique Wilson truly reflects the rare and unique qualities of this outstanding musical talent.
