Praise for “B.J. Ward Sings Marshall Barer”:
“The combination of B.J. Ward and the songs of Marshall Barer is one made in Heaven. Marshall Barer left behind a catalog of some of the most wonderful songs ever created. Her extraordinary ability to present his witty songs of high humor, passion, joy and longing is a thrilling roller coaster ride that never lets you down; and Marshall would have been thrilled with B.J.’s loving interpretations. He never properly received acknowledgement for his genius and was circumspect about it, yet he never gave up trying. Finally, his time has come.”
– Michael Feinstein
