Format: Audio CD
Firstly, Cliff still sounds in good voice. You may notice here and there that it's lost a little something as age is catching up a little, but nothing to worry about really.

It seems strange that Cliff should go to Tennessee to record an album with brass instruments; after all, Britain is the spiritual home of brass bands and any of the leading British brass bands could have provided stellar support for Cliff. Nevertheless, the Americans who contributed to this album have also done a stellar job. The only brass instruments used are trumpets, trombones, clarinets, flutes and various saxophones, although these are augmented by guitars, piano, bass, drums and percussion.

All but one of the songs date back originally to the first half of the twentieth century, when jazz and swing dominated popular music. Three of the songs (I've got you under my skin, Let's fall in love, Night and day) are Cole Porter compositions, while two others (I didn't know what time it was, Bewitched bothered and bewildered) are by Rodgers and Hart. Other classics from the era include Lazy river (a Hoagy Carmichael co-composition), Accentuate the positive (made famous by Bing Crosby and the Andrews Sisters), Love me or leave me (originally an American hit for Ruth Etting in the twenties, but later revived by Doris Day when the song was used as the title track of Ruth's biopic in which Doris starred), Don't get around much anymore (Duke Ellington) and They can't take that away from me (the only Gershwin song featured), which are all famous songs that have stood the test of time well. Of more recent vintage is Teach me tonight, which was a number two American hit for the DeCastro sisters in 1954, when a competing version by Jo Stafford also made the American top twenty.

This is a fine album that will please Cliff's fans, of whom I am one. I doubt that it will win him any new fans, but he has plenty already. If you are among them, I expect you will enjoy this one.

Very good Cliff Richard CD featuring classic songs from the 40s/50s/Big Band Era. If you enjoy older classics, check out this CD and give a listen to Don't Get Around Much Anymore; Teach Me Tonight; I've Got You Under My Skin; etc. Very nice rendtions of music from a great era.

This is an awesome album if you like Standards. Cliff Richards does all the songs justice. There is a good variety of songs from fast to slow so you do not get bored. A great pick-me-up album.

Our favorite entertainer in the world. Cliff like Elvis can sing in any style. I disagree with other reviewer who says Cliff's voice has lost a little bit over the years. I have been a fan since1958 and if you listen to his earlier recordings they sound the same maybe better and I'm talking about live recordings. Have all his dvds and he never fails to give his all.We are Cliff's biggest American fans
And wish he would do a concert in New York.

Bold As Brass by Cliff Richard has him taking on the great songbook of standards, with a swinging big band. His aim for some diversity catches on after a few listens to the CD. Particular favorites are Love Me Or Leave Me, Let's Fall In Love, and Don't Get Around Much Anymore. Big band and Cliff Richard fans will like this the most.
