She was "always chasing Rimbauds"

In these increasingly culturally dystopic times in which we live, it is highly unlikely that Verve Records, the label on which The World of Dorothy Parker originally appeared, would give even half a thought to ever reissuing that album. Too busy thinkin' 'bout the likes of Stephanie Germanotta and Calvin Broadus. Thus, my conscience is entirely clear re: qualms of intellectual property theft. Let 'er rip!

1. I Live onYour Visits
2. Arrangement in Black and White
3. Book review: "Zsa Zsa"
4. Partial Comfort, Bohemian, Coda, War Song

PS: Parker bequethed her entire estate to the NAACP and the ASPCA. A great lady!


Jane Harvey Sings Sondheim
now available at CDBaby
"A wonderful album---jazzy and theatrical in just the right proportions. "
--- Terry Teachout, author of the 2010 biography,
Pops: A Life of Louis Armstrong
