Lost In Romance is one album where the outstanding sound is matched by the music making. This critically acclaimed CD, gaining international radio airplay, brings the Songstress back to jazz.

Lost in Romance is a unique album that combines 13 of Los Angeles; best jazz musicians performing in four different trios along with soloists.

Radio Gurus have this to say about the album: ;STANLEY MATTERS Speaking of music, here comes Lyn Stanley, a blond right out of an old movie with Humphrey Bogart. She;s a dancer, too. And this new CD is fantastic. Great musicians behind a beautiful voice with such songs as quot;Fever,quot; quot;That Old Black Magic,quot; and quot;Change Partners.quot; You;re going to love every tune on quot;Lost In Romance.quot; Promoted by legendary Don Graham. Need I say more? Every song on this album would fit on any adult contemporary and jazz radio station in the world! Loved the crispness of the sound, the distinct quality of the voice, the phrasing bringing some excitement to the words. Madame Lyn, you;re great! You put something into a song.;-Claude Hall, The Dean of Radio Writers and author of Billboard;s famous Vox-Jox. ;I have been noting all the fuss about Lyn Stanley. So I decided to carefully review her Album ;Lost In Romance.quot; Now I am a booster. I hate to date myself but I have been programming Jazz for eons. And I am impressed. I am adding 7 tracks for air play on KKJZ (88.1) and we have a second jazz channel on 88.1 HD2 for just Jazz Vocals and she gets on that too. A couple of the tracks we have already by Sinatra. But I am adding Stanley;s anyway, and Frank better watch out. And, I am pleased to report that very soon I am bringing cool Jazz Radio back to Monterey, and Stanley;s songs will be on it. (Last week, we brought Classical Radio back to Monterey after it had been dropped by another station). I think St
