Both Nino Tempo and April Stevens possess incredible talent; and when they teamed up to sing some really great songs here on this two-fer CD they certainly didn't disappoint! They sang with a fine sense of timing, excellent diction and a wonderful ability to interpret standards to put their own stamp onto them and make them their own seemingly effortlessly. The CD has all of the tracks from two of their record albums entitled "Deep Purple" and "Nino and April Sing the Great Songs. We first get the tracks from the album "Deep Purple;" and the title cut starts the CD off with a fine interpretation of this classic ballad. They harmonize to perfection and the musical arrangement complements their singing to perfection-and beyond! "Paradise" has a distinctly sixties flavor to it that I always love to hear; and although "Baby Weemus" is something of a silly novelty song, it still holds its own.
