Moon And Sand captivates the listener with the opener: I've Never Been In Love Before by Frank Loesser. Proulx displays his wares on voice and piano with a fresh arrangement that sets the pace for what follows. The title track, Moon And Sand, showcases Proulx's warm voice. The pace slows with a lovely rendition of the song Alice In Wonderland by Sammy Fain and Bob Hilliard. The first of two originals, My Love For You, is a lush ballad with a beautiful melody. Featured on the piano is Tamir Hendelmen, who also co-produced the release with Proulx. The Duke Ellington/Bob Russell composition, Do Nothin' Till You Hear From Me, follows with a nice intro by Proulx on vocals and Berghofer on bass. The pace quickens with an Afro-Cuban-infused arrangement of the standard What A Difference A Day Makes by Stanley Adams and Maria Grever. The second original, Stuck In A Dream With Me, features inventive lyrics by K. Lawrence Dunham, who also contributed lyrics to My ! Love For You. Proulx's impressive voice stands out on this enchanting ballad. The line-up continues with high energy on There Is No Greater Love by Marty Symes and Isham Jones. The group shows energy on this track, which culminates with a fine solo by LaBarbera. I Should Care by Cahn, Stordahl and Weston follows and features swinging solos by Proulx and Berghofer. Cole Porter's So In Love is a tender arrangement showcasing great harmony by the group. Proulx's scatting opens the Brooks Bowman composition East of The Sun. The brilliant unison interplay of the group is exhibited on the Cole Porter classic You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To. The session comes to a close with a lovely rendition of I Can't Make You Love Me by Mike Reid and Allen Shamblin.
