On her official website Errico says that she will re-record her vocals for her upcoming CD featuring the tunes of Amour composer Michel Legrand. Director Richard Jay-Alexander, most recently represented by the acclaimed production of Guys and Dolls in Concert at the Hollywood Bowl, will join Errico in the studio; Jay-Alexander is also Errico's new concert director. "I guess after three kids (yes Victoria is 3 and the baby twins are thriving, I am so grateful)," Errico writes on her website, "I have new spirit to bring to the cd and I'm so excited about it. I had put it on the shelf for a while when the 'lullabies' cd got picked up so suddenly, but it's time for that next recording to come into the world."
A release date for the Legrand recording has yet to be announced.
