More Info:

Nonesuch Records releases The Randy Newman Songbook, Vol. 3 on September 23. The album is the third in a series comprising solo recordings of songs from throughout Newman's five-decade career. Previous volumes were released in 2003 and 2011. (A four-LP, vinyl-only limited-edition box set, The Randy Newman Songbook, containing all three volumes in a new, thematic sequencing, is being released simultaneously.) Mitchell Froom and Newman's lifelong friend and colleague Lenny Waronker produced The Randy Newman Songbook, Vol. 3.

Reviews:

The New York Times said of the first volume of The Randy Newman Songbook: "The great craftsmanship is more apparent in the stripped-down context," and the Associated Press said, "Few singer-songwriters could inject more new life into solo piano versions of their work than Randy Newman." The UK's Uncut called Vol. 2 "another subtly sublime stroll through the master's back catalogue," noting that Newman is "owner of a peerless canon," and that the album "isolates his full range of qualities: the improbable juxtapositions of caustic topicality and heart-wrenching universality, the concise character studies, and singing and piano playing that seem to emanate from the very fabric of America."
