Dick And Kiz Harp At The 90th Floor
The following copy, written in 1959, taken from the original LP
Dick and Kiz Harp are two young people who are united in the
kind of marital relationship that had to be made in Heaven.
All you have to do is see and hear them for a little while to
become a believer.
This, their first album, titled "DICK AND KIZ AT THE 90th
FLOOR," will be the introduction they need to those with
great taste and musical integrity such as theirs. Kiz, a slender,
beautiful girl, with heart and mind to match, will treat you
to her sly with her rendition of "You Are Not My First
Love," an early song of a now very well known composer
named Bart Howard. And when husband Dick joins her to sing "Too
Good For The Average Man," you can almost see the twinkle
in their eyes. Together they sing "Joey" -- "Ugly
Duckling" and "Inch Worm" in a manner so personal,
it can only be theirs.
Kiz has special way of drawing you very close with her husky
voice and complete understanding of everything she sings as is
demonstrated by “Lazy Afternoon.” I felt the
brush of a butterfly’s wings as I heard it.
“Down In The Depths On The 90th Floor,” the Cole
Porter song for which their charming club is named, is another
reason why you can always find the local and visiting celebrities
sitting there listening to the Harps, enchanted.
The Piano, the department which belongs to Dick entirely, is
really the third permanent member of the act, unobtrusive, beautiful,
and necessary to the blend.
I fell in love with Dick and Kiz Harp in Dallas, Texas, and
the year as I recall was early 1956. I make no bones about my
admiration and respect for them as great humans and as artists.
I must further admit that I can’t always be completely
objective about them, but somehow I have the feeling that everyone
who will hear them on this album or in person, will have to agree
that these beautiful people with so much to give, are really
on their way.
I am sure they will one day be the Presidents of the Club (currently
the office is held unofficially of course, by the master, Frank
You may, after you have read these notes, consider them to
be a love letter. I intended it that way.
