Cynthia Basinet latest new single, "It's Only A Paper Moon"
(Published: April 13, 2012)

Cynthia Basinet, the actress, singer, humanitarian known for the most iconic version of "Santa Baby," releases her new single, "It's Only A Paper Moon".

SmoothJazz.com said, "Actress, humanitarian, and Great American Songbook aficionada Cynthia Basinet follows up her stunning holiday release, "The Christmas Song" with one of our most beloved evergreens... IT'S ONLY A PAPER MOON. Ms. Basinet nails her unique read on a song that was penned by Harold Arlen, Billy Rose and E.Y. "Yip" Harburg, and first published in 1933. The lyrics play on our perceptions of reality vs. fantasy, and Cynthia's version ingeniously captures that vibe perfectly. Is she really the singer, or is it Marilyn Monroe, or is it a love struck young lady suddenly realizing she exists in The Matrix? You be the judge, but don't miss Cynthia Basinet's amazing version of IT'S ONLY A PAPER MOON!"

Arranged by and on piano and vibes, Lee Musiker (Emmy Award-winning conductor, composer and arranger). On bass, Gary Haase (produced and written for Chaka Kahn, Celine Dion, George Benson) And on drums, Rick Cutler (currently tours with Liza Minnelli. Recorded with Billy Eckstine, Perry Farrell (of Jane's Addiction)). Mixed and mastered, Dana Meyers (Babyface, The Whispers, Shalimar) Lloyd Chiate (Eddie Money, Motown, Voltage Guitars). Recorded in the Nola Recording Studios, NYC, NY Photo: Brie Childers, CD graphics: Marcello Studios, Location: Imagitarium Studios, Van Nuys, CA
