Sandy Kastel    This Time Around
By D. Oscar Groomes 

O's Notes: Sandy has a pleasing stage like voice with a soft, gentle innocent character. The program is 15 popular classics including "Fever", "Beyond The Sea", "Misty" and "My Funny Valentine". The differentiating factor here is a full orchestra including strings and background singers behind her for 13 of the tracks! The music is powerful and dynamic while Sandy is crisp and clear in front. Kastel's presentation is ripe for primetime American entertainment.
