    This attractive collection includes 16 songs by one of the greatest composers of the Great American Songbook. In addition to standards like "April in Paris" and "Autumn in New York," it offers lesser-known gems such as "Born Too Late" and "Low and Lazy." The selections span a 26-year...

    period during which Vernon Duke composed hundreds of songs with some of the best lyricists in the business. The designation Volume 1 implies that other volumes will follow. When published, they will be a most welcome addition to this precious repertoire. In the meantime, we can savor these 16 songs like luscious desserts.
