Product Notes

Features 14 songs from Weill's early works with Brecht to his last unfinished Broadway show: Huck Finn. The pianist is the wonderful Stan Cramer. This CD came out of a collaboration between Stan and Bremner on a show of Kurt Weill's songs that has since toured across the world. Critics have said... 'Bremner Duthie has a voice of power and inner beauty that commands the whole space..... One feels seduced by the sheer power and beauty of this performance' -- Musical Stages Magazine: London, England "And my god, does he ever sing. Bremner's performance is jaw-dropping-my jaw literally dropped-as he not only sings beautifully but actually performs the songs beautifully as well. ' --View Magazine, Hamilton, Ontario 'When he sings, his voice is like a big, dark, sultry room --full of emotive and expressive possibilities. Even when Duthie sings in languages other than English, the passion and subtext come startlingly alive.' -- The Georgia Straight, Vancouver "For many of us, our first exposure to Kurt Weill was on Bette Midler's early albums. Since then, such performers as Ute Lemper and Teresa Statas have become great interpreters of his music. Add Bremner Duthie, the star of 'Whiskey Bars' to that list. He delivers a stunning, stirring rendition of 'What Keeps a Man Alive?' and his 'Mack the Knife' is done slowly and seductively, because it's a song for a bad boy. - Stephen Lavigne, Minneapolis Web Reviewer "Bremner Sings Weill is a 15-song collection of some of the best work of German-born composer Kurt Weill, most famous for his collaborations with writer Bertolt Brecht but who also worked with such lyricists as Ira Gershwin and Oscar Hammerstein. Duthie - with fabulous accompaniment by pianist Stan Cramer - savours each word as a succulent morsel. With Duthie's comforting, soothing baritone voice, this is music to satiate the soul. Thanks to his background in opera, and talent for cabaret and broadway song styles, Duthie 'pays close attention to text,' as the expression goes. Indeed, he treats every song as a script and each is quite scenic - none more so than his unique and pleasing interpretation of Weill & Brecht's 'Mack The Knife'. His vocal presentations also range from celebratory ('Bilbao Song') to mischievous ('Apple Jack') to soft and gentle ('Speak Low'), and then immediately to passionate and with gusto for a trio of tunes ('The Song Of The Big Shot', 'What Keeps Mankind Alive' and 'Alabama Song'). If you're at all interested in the music of Weill, this is a CD to add to your collection. If you're not familiar with his work, this CD would make an excellent primer. Bremner Sings Weill ... he also sings well ... exceedingly well, as a matter of fact.'
