Entitled "Tennessee Williams: Words and Music," the CD is now available available in stores and online.
The album is a document of Fraser’s concert The Tennessee Williams Songbook, which premiered at Tennessee Williams/New Orleans Literary Festival last spring. David Kaplan, the show’s writer and director, has merged the songs heard in Williams’ plays with the words the playwright intended to join them. Together, "Tennessee Williams: Words and Music," according to press notes, "tells a moving and passionate new story of their own."
"Tennessee Williams: Words and Music" features songs taken from the Tennessee Williams canon: A Streetcar Named Desire (the Harold Arlen classic “It’s Only A Paper Moon”), This Property is Condemned (Gene Autry’s “You’re the Only Star”), Clothes for a Summer Hotel (Nöel Coward’s “The Party’s Over Now”), Something Cloudy, Something Clear (the Oscar-winning Hawaiian staple “Sweet Leilani”) and more.
