There are a lot of pages from the American Song Book, and Broadway Stage.

Also of note are Chanticleer, Pink Martini from Portland, Ore; Great Northern Union Chorus from Minneapolis, Nils Lindberg and Margareta Bengtson from Sweden; The Hi-Lo’s with the Frank Comstock’s Orchestra and The El Divo quartet.
