Vampin' Lady: The Music of Milton Ager

Singer Joyce Moody wraps her robust voice around the honky-tonk tunes and smoky ballads of  great American composer Milton Ager. 

It's a full-scale musical journey from "Hard-Hearted Hannah" to the heartbreaking "I'm Nobody's Baby" and the rousing "Happy Days Are Here Again"!  Over 20 great songs from the early 1910s right through the 1930s.  

Pianist Earl Wentz makes the style of the era come alive with the same deft touch on the keyboard that has made him a favorite on the concert and cabaret scene throughout the U.S.

The CD is wonderful.  Joyce really puts a lot of spirit and feeling into the music.  Earl's arrangements are very creative and fun to listen to. They are both really talented...It's good that most of the verses are included, as well as the usual choruses.  In fact, for one or two of the more uncommon songs, this might be the first time the verse lyrics have been recorded.
-- L. Rubenstein, UCLA, nephew of the composer and Ager family archivist, Los Angeles, CA

I listened with pleasure to the CD....Moody is a one-person cast of four revue all by herself and Wentz's arrangements well-set the mood.  I had never heard or heard of most of the songs so it's a great service you do bringing them back -- a lot of fun mixed with bittersweet ballads.
-- Dennis Livingston, composer and director of the Boston Cabaret Association, son of composer Jerry Livingston
