Title - Isnít It Romantic
Artist - Judy Whitmore

For those unaware, acclaimed vocalist, pilot, best-selling author, psychologist and theater producer Judy Whitmore has announced her new jazz album Isnít It Romantic out September 16th, 2022 along with the music video for second single Sunday In New York (see link below).

Indeed, most people would need two or three lifetimes to accomplish as much in life as vocalist Judy Whitmore has so far. Named after the legendary singer Judy Garland (a friend of her grandfather from his days in the MGM Studio Orchestra), as noted, she is not only a respected jazz and cabaret performer and recording artist, a bestselling novelist, a theater producer, but is also a Board member of Pacific Symphony, and a Marriage and Family therapist with a masterís degree in clinical psychology, and a licensed commercial jet pilot!

Now, on her third album, Isnít It Romantic, Whitmore lends her lilting, appealing voice to some of the most iconic tunes of the Great American Songbook.

On Isnít It Romantic, Whitmore chose a mix of ballads and swing tunes to which she applies her velvety vocals. Although her lifeís journey had taken her down many different paths, she never lost her love of music.

Whitmore says, ďI always wanted to sing full-time, but it was never possible. I had done all these exciting things, and none of it was easy, but I always felt something was missing,Ē she admits.

ďI knew it was time to get a box of dreams out of the closet and embrace the music career I had always wanted.Ē

1. It Could Happen To You
2. I Remember You
3. Sunday In New York
4. You Go To Mt Head
5. The Nearness of You
6. The Birth of The Blues
7. Speak Low
8. Isnít It Romantic
9. In the Wee Small Hours of The Morning
10. But Beautiful
11. Just A Little Loviní
12. Hallelujah I Love Him

This stunning majestic and just all round magically shimmering new album opens on the sultry It Could Happen To You (complete with a stunning piano solo from award-winning pianist/conductor Tamir Hendelman) and the unbreakable I Remember You, before we get Sunday In New York, where Whitmore infuses every line with her palpable affection for the city where she was born, and that is in turn backed seamlessly by the soulfully-imbibed You Go To My Head, the lushly orchestrated The Nearness of You and then comes an enraptured The Birth of The Blues.

Up next is the beautifully crafted Speak Low and the evergreen balladry of the titular Isnít It Romantic and they are backed by the enigmatically sorrowful ache of In The Wee Small Hours of The Morning, the quietly melodious But Beautiful, the album rounding out on the heartfelt hipsway of Just A Little Loviní, coming to a righteous close on the deliciously righteous Hallelujah I Love Him So.

With her music amassing over one million streams, Isnít It Romantic is the follow-up to her highly lauded 2020 debut album Canít We Be Friends and marks a new era musically for Whitmore with a bold departure from the more traditional arrangements of its predecessors, unfolding in a more free-flowing sound imbued with the improvisational spirit and exploratory musicianship of jazz - a feat she achieves with both dazzling ingenuity and extraordinary grace.

Produced by John Sawoski (a composer, orchestrator, and musical director who also helmed the production of Canít We Be Friends,) the track came to life at the legendary Capitol Studios in Los Angeles (where her story began as a singer in college) in a series of sessions with Grammy Award-nominated recording engineer Steve Genewick (Barbra Streisand, Burt Bacharach).
