Review:
"Come with me, come with me/Says the sandman peacefully/The wings of angels/Brush against your sleepy eyes/I can tell you all is right/This night."

The tenderness in that chorus from "This Night," sung by vocalist and musician Dee Carstensen, echoes throughout this treasury of soft, pretty lullabies by Carstensen and Julie Dansky. Carstensen's voice is a silvery caress; Dansky, Everett Bradley and Curtis King lend their own, equally tender styles to some lead vocals, too, and there is musical depth in the varied instrumental "interludes" and accompaniments performed on vibraphone, cello, piano, harp, guitar and other well-chosen instruments.
