It's no stretch to call 'Standard Songs for Average People' a masterpiece. Standard Songs, yes, but with extraordinary choices and performances. Average people these aren't, but the title carries the message that music like this, timeless and gentle and humane, is not for music snobs or insiders. It's not only the old or the young or for a demographic or psychographic. It is, across generation and persuasion, for all of us.
