    For his fourth solo disc, actor-singer Philip Chaffin -- backed by a 23-piece orchestra -- turns to one of the most gifted songwriters of Broadway's Golden Age, the great lyricist Dorothy Fields. One of Broadway's most talented wordsmIt's, Fields was also one of its most adaptable, with a career spanning nearly half a century. Her illustrious collaborators included Jimmy McHugh, Jerome Kern, Harold Arlen, Arthur Schwartz and Cy Coleman, and with them, she created some of the most enduring classics of the Great American Songbook. But Chaffin also mines some of her lesser-known gems, no less glorious, including "Then You Went and Changed Your Mind" (with McHugh), "Carousel in the Park" (with Sigmund Romberg), "A Cow and a Plow and a Frau" (with Morton Gould), "You're a Lovable Lunatic" (with Coleman) and two with Arlen: "Let Me Look at You" and the unpublished tune that gives the album its title. The pairing of Chaffin and Fields proves especially felicitous. As Tony Award-winning composer Maury Yeston notes in the album's liner notes, "There's an elegance, exuberance and effortlessness to Fields' lyrics; the same could be said of Chaffin's performing style. For some reason, few men have taken on the Fields catalog; this album turns out to be a perfect match of singer and songwriter."
