what the critics are saying
 


“What a bountiful melodist Jule Styne was, what a beautiful tribute to him this disc is. Few and far between must be musical fans who can't rattle off Jule Styne's Broadway catalogue. But his chiefly earlier contributions to the movies, however accomplished, are not nearly so well known. So hats off to PS Classics for their release of Jule Styne in Hollywood, which rectifies matters. They have rounded up a first-rate orchestra conducted by Aaron Gundy, as well as a few guest conductors and solo piano accompanists for 15 numbers plus a medley of six more. And some expert singers. The lyrics are mostly by the splendid Sammy Cahn, though Frank Loesser, Bob Merrill, Harold Adamson, and others are also represented, as are sundry orchestrators and arrangers. But the vocalists are rightly the glory of the CD...”

Jule Styne in Hollywood

JULE STYNE IN HOLLYWOOD brings together some of the best artists of Broadway and jazz to celebrate the master melodist’s extraordinary Hollywood output. 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.
