what the critics are saying
 


“While we get plenty of tuneful melodies, some of these songs are quite rollicking, thank you very much. Twenty-nine seconds into the second track, you will be hooked.”
–Playbill


Jule Styne in Hollywood

Jule Styne is perhaps best remembered as the composer of such Broadway smash hits as Gypsy, Funny Girl, and Bells Are Ringing, but before he turned his attention to the stage, he was one of Hollywood’s most prolific tunesmiths. Beginning in 1938, he turned out what frequent collaborator Sammy Cahn called an “almost embarrassing” string of song hits, garnering ten Academy Award nominations in the process. His hits, most written with lyricist Cahn, included "I've Heard That Song Before," "Saturday Night Is the Loneliest Night of the Week," "I’ll Walk Alone," "It’s Been a Long, Long Time" and "Time After Time," but his many forgotten songs – not only with Cahn, but with lyricists Frank Loesser, Harold Adamson, Walter Bullock and Kim Gannon – are equally felicitous. With the support and cooperation of his widow, Margaret Styne, and Joseph Weiss, General Manager of Jule Styne Enterprises, PS Classics has unearthed Styne’s rich film catalog, and the resulting CD, JULE STYNE IN HOLLYWOOD, brings together some of the best artists of Broadway and jazz to celebrate the master melodist’s extraordinary Hollywood output.
