From the liner notes: “Fiona Apple might seem an unlikely choice for this compilation, but the singer-songwriter and pianist has leaned in a jazz direction with each progressive album. On Cy Coleman’s “Why Try To Change Me Now”, she shows that she belongs among these legends…” It comes from the 2009 tribute album to the legendary Broadway composer, The Best is Yet to Come, The Songs of Cy Coleman“. Produced by Dave Palmer.
