Liza Minnelli chronology

Confessions is a studio album by American singer and actress Liza Minnelli, released through Decca Records on September 21, 2010 in the United States.[1]


The album, recorded while Minnelli was recovering from knee surgery, marked her first studio release in nearly fifteen years.[2][3] Originally, the story was these recordings were old tapes that a neighbor in Beverly Hills had discovered, having been recorded some 10 or more years earlier but this story changed after the album's release. The original press release reads: " Liza Minnelli (pictured) showed up at her neighbor Bruce Roberts' Beverly Hills door late one night nearly a decade ago saying, "I just feel like singing." Minnelli relaxed on a couch, while Billy Stritch played keyboard, and Liza sang 20 old standards as Roberts tape-recorded the session. Last year, Roberts found the tapes in an old box and realized he had found gold. "They were brilliant. So I tweaked them up," Roberts told us. "It's like having Liza singing in your living room." The duo signed a deal with Decca in November.[4]
