Airing on NPR, the "Tales of American Masters" series is the one-man band of producer/reader/composer Winifred Phillips. In it she reads classic short stories underscored by her own synthesized music and sound effects. Durkin Hayes is releasing individual stories from the series one at a time. Phillips's crystalline soprano trips lightly on the ear but is not particularly expressive. The artistry with which she combines her voice with background elements gives her productions distinction. In this version of Washington Irving's evergreen, all the wit and humor come from the music, which makes for an enjoyable, undemanding listen.
