THE LIZA MINNELLI COLLECTION

Liza Minnelli

“From the time I was a little girl my parents taught me about orchestrations though I didn’t know it at the time. My father took me to recording sessions at MGM and I’d watch my mother rehearse with bands, and in time I understood the importance of arrangers and arrangements. It’s a thrill hearing the sound of a new chart played for the first time. The sound of a chart can make or break a performance and I’ve always worked closely with my musicians to get the perfect sound of what we want. And I’ve worked with the best, from Mort Lindsey, Ralph Burns, Billy Byers, and Peter Matz, to Don Sebesky, Marvin Hamlisch, Jonathan Tunick, and Luther Henderson. They gave me my ‘sound’ and I love them all!”
