You Are Too Beautiful

05:04
Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart

Story

 

Once again, the undeniable influence of the great recording of Johnny Hartman with John Coltrane lives in this respectful interpretation of one of Rodgers and Hart’s lesser-known ballads that somehow never found a home in one of their musicals. This song is the epitome of the intimacy of a lover’s declaration. The passionately tender lyrics of Larry Hart easily could stand alone as a poem that speaks of the overpowering love of a man for a beautiful woman. He describes her as “too beautiful to be true,” then openly confesses that he is “a fool for beauty.” Wayne and Judy unveil the depth of the sensitivity of their musical collaboration in this quite intimate performance.
