With a Song in My Heart
Whitfield, called "one of the finest masters of popular singing" by the Los Angeles Times, turns her prodigious talents to the phenomenal body of work by the team of Rodgers and Hart. Perhaps no other songwriting team caught the perfect balance between words and music as did Rodgers and Hart. Wesla's (to quote the Chicago Tribune) "lovely instrument, sure technique, novel way with a phrase and deep understanding of lyrics" breathe new meaning into these gems of The Great American Songbook. Favorites like ""ou Took Advantage of Me", "Thou Swell" and "Easy to Remember" rub elbows with seldom-heard jewels such as "You're Nearer", "He Was Too Good to Me" and others. You haven't really heard Rodgers and Hart until you've heard their tunes given the Wesla Whitfield treatment.
