Naxos American Classics will release Wasting the Night: Songs of Scott Wheeler in July 2010. Producer Adam Abeshouse writes:

“The recording of Scott Wheeler’s songs strikes me as real musical news. He has come up with a fresh approach to American art song by going back to the basics – clearly set, communicative poetry with appealingly direct vocal lines and smart, idiomatic accompaniments. You can tell that Scott studied with American vocal-music master Virgil Thomson. You can also tell that he has spent many years performing the American musical theater repertoire. His songs have quite an expressive range, but all of them speak clearly, especially in the outstanding performances by Susanna Phillips, Krista River, Joseph Kaiser and William Sharp. Each singer is a major artist and each is experienced singing Scott’s music. The pianist Donald Berman has also performed and recorded Scott’s music; Don’s work adds another dimension to a vocal disc in which he is never merely an accompanist but always a full musical partner. This should be a knockout of a disc.”
