Performer Notes
  • Personnel: Carly Simon (vocals); Jay Berliner, Hugh McCracken (guitar); David Nadien (violin); Phil Woods (alto saxophone); Michael Brecker (tenor saxophone); Randy Brecker (trumpet); Mike Mainieri (piano, vibes, marimbas); Warren Bernhardt (piano, synthesizer); Anthony Jackson, Eddie Gomez (bass); Rick Marotta, Grady Tate, Jerry Marotta (drums).
  • Recorded at Power Station, New York.
  • TORCH features Simon's versions of jazz and blues songs from the 30's and 40's, along with one original song ("From The Heart").
  • Possibly stinging from criticism of her new wave-ish COME UPSTAIRS, Carly Simon followed that album with 1981's TORCH, a surprising and lovely collection of torch songs, old jazz standards, and Broadway melodies. Simon wrote only one of the album's 11 songs, "From the Heart," and did a wise job of choosing the others.
  • Most collections of this ilk stick to the tried and true, and while there are a few somewhat obvious selections, such as "I Get Along Without You Very Well" and "Body and Soul," for example, Simon wisely focuses on lesser-known wonders like Alec Wilder's "I'll Be Around" and Stephen Sondheim's "Not a Day Goes By." The arrangements use a small jazz combo and tasteful orchestrations to support the songs without smothering them. Never merely retro or sentimental, TORCH is a jazzy adult-pop delight.
