Jason Danieley and Marin Mazzie's "Opposite You" will thrill you again and again

Fans of married couple Marin Mazzie and Jason Danieley have long wondered when the mellifluous-voiced Broadway stars might sing together on an album. OPPOSITE YOU, expanded from their acclaimed evening of duets, is the answer to those prayers, celebratingt duets from Berlin to Arlen to Sondheim.

"The couple combine for an exquisite 'Happiness' (which Mazzie introduced in Passion), followed by pretty much perfect renditions of 'Good Thing Going' (Danieley) and 'Not A Day Goes By' (Mazzie, and mighty powerful). 'Opposite You' is the name of the CD, from the Danieleys." -Steven Suskin, Playbill Online

"Husband-and-wife duo Marin Mazzie and Jason Danieley are the first couple of Broadway. She starred in 'Ragtime' and 'Kiss Me Kate.' He was in 'The Full Monty' and 'Candide.'Now they're showcased in 'Opposite You' album of solos and duets that is easily the year's most enjoyable vocal release. Their medley of Irving Berlin duets in priceless, as is their Stephen Sondheim suite." -Chad Jones, Inside the Bay Area

PERSONAL NOTE: Jason and Marin performed songs from their CD in concert Sunday evening at the Ford Amphitheatre. It was an enchanted evening that none of us who were there will ever forget. These two are giant talents with incredible voices.
