Reviews

“His singing of ‘Wonderful Copenhagen’, with a variety of choruses, is full of bounce, and he puts ingenuousness and flavor into ‘Thumbelina’ and ‘The King’s New Clothes’. His singing of the tale of ‘The Ugly Duckling’ to a shaven-headed boy has wistful charm, as has his flutey solo of “Inch Worm” against a chorus of children singing in school.’ The New York Times, November 1952
