The Art of the Love Song, the Annie Moses Band’s PBS special, is old-school elegance in the mold of Grace Kelly and Cary Grant. The Band kept a classical aesthetic in these archetypal love songs, while flavoring them with retro strings and gypsy-jazz violin. Nat King Cole’s velvet string work served as a big inspiration as well. The ultra-creative members of the Band plucked repertoire from the Great American Songbook of the ‘40s and ‘50s, then borrowed from such soulful folk/rock song-smiths of the ‘60s and ‘70s as Don McLean, Paul Williams, and John Lennon. The Art of the Love Song—scheduled for release through Warner Classics, March 2016, with a tour following in the fall—is a tribute to the most treasured love songs of the last century. Be swept off your feet with the romance of forever!
