Love Held Lightly: Rare Songs by Harold Arlen

Music
Current Status:

Jazz

We gave it a B+

The care that Peggy Lee — and producers Bill Rudman, Ken Bloom, and Keith Ingham — invested in this unusual new Harold Arlen songbook is clear. Two bittersweet ”unknowns” from failed musicals, ”Come On, Midnight” and ”I Had a Love Once,” will likely live on once other singers hear Lee’s darkly moving readings. Here, her age is an asset.
