Title - My Ship: Songs From 1941
Artist - Dawn Derow

For those unaware, singer Dawn Derowís debut Zoho Music album My Ship: Songs From 1941 is a tribute to that yearís most iconic performers, such as Glenn Miller, Bing Crosby, Duke Ellington, and a tender Frank Sinatra.

World War II seems so far behind us. But in her acclaimed cabaret show, My Ship: Songs from 1941, and in this album of its music, Dawn Derow - a smart, sexy, expressive, and vocally polished woman of today - evokes that year as vividly as if it were happening now.

Simply put, youíll be plunged into a time of massive upheaval and all its colliding emotions - the wistfulness, the loss, the giddy escapism that music could bring.

1. Lover Man (Oh, Where Can You Be?)
2. Letís Get Away From It All / How About You
3. Skylark
4. Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy / Donít Sit Under The Apple Tree / Hut Sut Song
5. Why Donít We Do This More Often?
6. Chattanooga Choo Choo
7. Just Squeeze Me (But Please Donít Tease Me) / I Got It Bad (And That Ainít Good)
8. Blues in the Night
9. Baby Mine (from Dumbo)
10. The Saga of Jenny (from Lady in the Dark)
11. My Ship (from Lady in the Dark)
12. At Last
13. White Christmas
14. (Thereíll Be Bluebirds Over) The White Cliffs Of Dover

Rolling the clock back 80 years to when music was a force that carried us through anything and everything, this vibrantly alluring new album opens on the torchy yearning of Billie Holiday on the dulcet Lover Man (Oh, Where Can You Be?) and backs that up with Letís Get Away From It All / How About You (featuring Aaron Heick on clarinet, a double-sided hit for Tommy Dorsey and his legendary flock of singers: Frank Sinatra, Jo Stafford, and her fellow Pied Pipers).

Up next is the tender lullaby Skylark (Dinah Shore) and then a spectacularly rousing, sassy swing medley of Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy / Donít Sit Under The Apple Tree / Hut Sut Song and they are in turn backed by the low slung Why Donít We Do This More Often? (from bandleader Kay Kyser and his two wholesome songbirds, Ginny Simms and Harry Babbitt), the come-hither invitation of Chattanooga Choo Choo (Glenn Miller and His Orchestra) and then comes the laid back medley of Just Squeeze Me (But Please Donít Tease Me) / I Got It Bad (And That Ainít Good).

Next up is yet another track from the Great American Songbook, the sultry story that showcases the wrath of a woman spurned in Johnny Mercer and Harold Arlenís Blues in the Night (and which was all over the 1941 charts in five hit versions), and then the lesser heard Baby Mine (from 1941ís Dumbo, which features music by Frank Churchill and lyrics by Ned Washington) and they are in turn followed by melodic rhythms of The Saga of Jenny (from Lady in the Dark), the mellifluous title track My Ship (also from Lady in the Dark), a quite euphoric rendition of Etta Jamesí classic At Last, the album rounding out on a festive White Christmas (which starts off unique, but soon slides into the traditional lyrical fare), coming to a close on the Derowís own take on Vera Lynnís 1942 classic (Thereíll Be Bluebirds Over) The White Cliffs Of Dover.

Directed by the acclaimed cabaret singer Jeff Harnar, My Ship, which premiered in 2017, earned MAC Awards (from the Manhattan Association of Cabarets and Clubs) for both her and Harnar.
