Arif Mardin on New Protoge, Melissa Errico


Mister D: This is from the new edition of Billboard Magazine. Very high praise coming from Mr. Mardin. The CD is “Blue Like That” by Melissa Errico. I noticed she does a version of “He Was Too Good To Me”

“I would take Melissa’s album with me to a desert island,” says an enthused Mardin. “Melissa is a singer’s singer. She offers such heartfelt interpretations of originals and these incredible standards. She sees each song in a visual way, sets up a scene, and then sings as if she’s telling the story she has created — in much the mode that Bette Midler operates. I really believe in her.”
