PERFECT PICTURE ALBUM REVIEW | November 4, 2013

SHOW MUSIC DIRECT: HOT NEW CAST RECORDINGS
By ANDY PROPST

What's new in the world of cast albums and other theater-related music? A lot.
The past few weeks have been filled with a wealth of new releases that have something for just about everyone...from anyone who wants to be up-to-the-minute with what's new on Broadway to those people who like a backward glance at the kinds of music that filled New York stages in days gone by. And, for listeners who want to be one step ahead of the game, there are some terrific concept recordings that can be found in brick-and-mortar stores or online retailers, and likewise available for digital download.

A musical inspired by the life of renowned artist Normal Rockwell is found in the studio album for Picture Perfect (ebsoriginals.com). And though this show has yet to make it to the stage, an A-List cast for the album has been assembled that includes Mark Jacoby, Judy Kaye, Beth Leavel, Andrea McArdle, Lillias White and Tom Wopat. Gail C. Bluestone has written a baker's dozen of songs that are as wonderfully nostalgic as the covers that Rockwell created for The Saturday Evening Post, and Eileen Bluestone Sherman's lyrics match the artist's blend of sweetness and comic bite.
