Overview

Carly Simon is no stranger to the Great American Songbook. As one of the very first pop-rock stars to turn to pre-rock standards for artistic renewal -- her groundbreaking Torch was released in 1981 -- Simon is by now an old pro when it comes to the imperishable work of such songwriting giants as Porter, the Gershwins, and Rodgers and Hart. On her fourth all-standards project, Simon reunites with producer Richard Perry, the studio wizard behind Simon’s hugely successful albums of the 1970s. Thankfully, Perry doesn't goose up the arrangements or tempos, à la Rod Stewart’s recent standards albums. Lush strings and tasteful instrumental solos prevail, while rhythms swing lightly. In this case, sticking to convention carries the day. Simon’s expressive voice is front and center; her ability to find ageless significance in decades-old lyrics remains as impressive as her general comfort and easeful delivery with such familiar fare as “All the Things You Are,” “How Long Has This Been Going On,” and “Moonglow.” Moonlight Serenade is the work of a vocal icon who takes the whole pop tradition as her palette; maturity is only making her a more compelling artist.
