Helen Merrill Liner notes

The first time I had the privlidge to see Nora York perform, I came with an open mind. Some friends brought me to a 'downtown' avant-garde club in New York City. I really didn't know what to expect, and I must confess my interest was piqued.

What happened was a total delight. Nora York stepped on stage... statuesque, gorgeous, and in total control. Her own compositions, filled with wit and passion, were framed by standards done in a new and vibrant way. She teased and captivated the audience with her humorous, sometimes apocalyptic commentaries. I was knocked out.

Nora brings to her premeire solo album all the elements of her finely-honed act, as well as a smooth mellifluos vocal style truely her own. Enjoy the album as I have enjoed her live performance.

I am sure that Nora York will continue to surprise and enchant us all in the future.
