Ghostlight Records, a division of Sh-K-Boom Records, proudly releases a brand new recording by Patti LuPone, The Lady With The Torch, that will be available nationwide on April 25, 2006. The CD is based on Ms. LuPone's concert "The Lady With The Torch," which was conceived and directed by Scott Wittman, with orchestrations by Jonathan Tunick and musical direction by Chris Fenwick.  The recording is produced by Joel Moss and Sh-K-Boom/Ghostlight Records President Kurt Deutsch.

Patti LuPone, who currently stars in the Broadway smash hit Sweeney Todd, developed The Lady With The Torch through a series of concert appearances.  Venues include Feinstein's at the Regency (New York), Cinegrill (Los Angeles) and the Plush Room (San Francisco), and eventually, a sold-out solo show at Carnegie Hall last March, marking her third sold-out concert there to date.  For the studio recording, Chris Fenwick conducted a ten-piece band performing Jonathan Tunick's orchestrations of an eclectic array of torch songs by such composers and lyricists as Jule Styne, Sammy Cahn, Harold Arlen, Billy Barnes, Johnny Mercer, Jessie Mae Robinson, Cole Porter and George & Ira Gershwin.

Upon its premiere in Los Angeles early last year, The Los Angeles Times called The Lady With The Torch, "a beautifully paced, marvelously delivered torch-song exploration of the pleasures and pains of love," adding "LuPone's remarkable, larger than life qualities and stunning musicality are distilled in the pure essence of art."

Patti LuPone's previous recordings include Matters Of The Heart, Patti LuPone Live and Heat Wave, a collection of Irving Berlin songs performed with John Mauceri and the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra.  Her most recent original cast recording is of the hit revival Sweeney Todd.
