Most of the songs in this new Turn On Records release, 'Jazzin' Around,' will be familiar to most listeners. 'Stardust' and 'My Funny Valentine' for example, have probably been heard and loved bhy well over half the planet. Others, like the seductive but funny 'Peel Me A Grape' and the playful 'The Best Thing For You' are treasures we rarely hear. Two of the songs, 'Take Five' and 'A Night in Tunisia,' are almost always done in the instrumental versions. Most people don't even realize there actually are lyrics for them. 'Who Needs Spring' although used in a movie, is largely unknown in the U.S. It was written bhy Ruth Allen and Alan Berry. Alan is a fine British musician with his own jazz band. His sister Ruth is a personal friend of mine whom I met when she was playing a piano bar gig in London, singing lots of great songs - some standards and some her own - and singing them all beautifully. She writes lyrics, and for many songs, the music as well, and they're all very good. 'Who Needs Spring' is a special favorite of mine. 'Harlem Nights' is a brand new song, written by a new personal friend, Bud Mayer, with words by Steve Princiotta. I met Bud at a party about a week before we recorded this CD, and we got into a mini jam session. At one point, he played the song, showed me the words, and I thought, I've got to include it. So there was a mad scramble, and we got it in. I hope you have as much pleasure out of these great songs as we did in performing them. Eileen Mager.
