The CD was recorded in Los Angeles and produced by Lessack and Tony nominee Brian Lane Green, who conceived and directed the project.
The CD repertoire, according to press notes, takes the "listener from the streets of Paris to the Broadway stage, with influences and inspirations from Aznavour and Sinatra to Leonard Cohen." Lessack is supported on the recording by the arrangements of longtime collaborator/pianist John Boswell along with David Boswell on guitar and Daniel Fabricant on bass.
The complete track listing follows:
The Summer Knows (Theme From “Summer Of ‘42”)/Between Yesterday and Tomorrow
I Will Wait For You (From “The Umbrellas Of Cherbourg”)
The Importance Of The Rose (L’important C’est La Rose)
Yesterday When I Was Young
Pieces Of Dreams
The Sound Of Your Name
What Now My Love
Hymn To Love
Song Of Bernadette
If We Only Have Love (From Jacques Brel Is Alive And Well And Living In Paris)
On Oct. 7 Lessack will team with Amanda McBroom in "Chansons d’amour: An Homage to the Great French Songbook (from an American Perspective)" at the Ford Amphitheater in Hollywood, CA.
