Navigation for New Horizons

In his most recent album Kisses on the Bottom [Hear Music], Paul McCartney tackles a dozen Tin Pan Alley standards backed by musicians such as pianist Diana Krall and guitarist John Pizzarelli; the orchestral forces are arranged by Alan Broadbent. William assesses this in the context of McCartney's own song-writing and other singers' endeavours in the Tin Pan Alley field. We hear from Barbara Cook, Cathy Berberian, Barbra Streisand, Kiri Te Kanawa, Pat Rooney, Frank Loesser, The Leisure Society, Otis Redding, Ringo Starr, Arthur Conley and Elvis Costello.
