Tom Lobo: Being Alive (Sondheim & Herman)




Album Notes
Tom Lobo, with Albert Combrink at the Piano, in ”BEING ALIVE”.

The Greatest Broadway Songs You Probably Never Heard.

To select material for this CD was simple. Ever since I entered the theatre at age 13 for the first time, to work as a stagehand during my vacations, the musical theater has been my favorite world.

In that world, two brilliant American composers/lyricists, stand out, Stephen Sondheim and Jerry Herman. Their contribution to musical theatre is unparalleled.
