A SPOONFUL OF SHERMAN Original London Cast Recording Out Next Week
On Monday 13th July 2015 SimG Records is to release the Original London Cast Recording of A SPOONFUL OF SHERMAN - the critically acclaimed cabaret revue that celebrates 90 years and 3 generations of Sherman family songwriting.
Al Sherman was one of the most sought after songwriters on Tin Pan Alley in the 20s, 30s and 40s, with songs recorded by Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Frank Sinatra, Al Jolson, Bing Crosby, amongst others. Al's sons, Robert and Richard Sherman, are the most successful song-writing partnership in the history of Hollywood, composing more movie musical songs and acclaimed film scores than any other writing team. Their Oscar winning songs from shows such as Mary Poppins, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, The Jungle Book, The Aristocats and The Slipper and The Rose have entertained the world for more than 60 years. Robert's son Robbie was the youngest songwriter to join the BMI, and has gone on to write for television, film and theatre. In 2014, together with musical director Colin Billing, Robbie created A SPOONFUL OF SHERMAN to celebrate his family's astonishing songwriting legacy.
The double-disc recording comes complete with a 20-page colour booklet, narration by Robert J Sherman, and features over 40 classic Sherman songs. Arrangements are by Colin Billing, produced by Nick Lloyd Webber, and stars the original London cast: Greg Castiglioni (Titanic) Stuart Matthew Price (Parade) Charlotte Wakefield (two-time Olivier nominee, Sound Of Music, Spring Awakening) and Emma Williams (two-time Olivier nominee, Zorro, Love Story).
Created in 2009, SimG Records has become the leading independent label supporting new musical theatre writers and artists in the UK. In 2014 SimG Records was nominated for seven BroadwayWorld.com Album Awards. Mark Shenton from The Stage says "SimG Records are doing more for new writers than just about any other label around."
Physical CDs are available to pre-order now from www.SimGProductions.com, and will be available digitally later in the year. Catalogue No: SimGR-CD027
