This CD will likely have huge cross-genre appeal.

Listening to this new music is so refreshing - it's so genuine, soulful and rich with many flavors - my type of music.

"Once Upon a Time" is such a great song... it makes me feel happy inside and think of how important family is.

I found out about Matt Cusson from a random Youtube search, and when I heard a minute long clip of him doing a jazz/r+b cover of Billy Joel's "Just the Way You Are", I was floored and had to hear more. This led me to finding his CD on amazon, and due to other positive reviews, bought it that day. This is one of the best purchases I have made in 2010; Matt Cusson's piano chops are a fusion of jazz, r+b, funk and pop/rock ballads, and his playing is simply gorgeous. Like Stevie Wonder (I'd imagine he is a huge influence) and other cream of the crop R+B artists, Matt Cusson has that ability that only great R+B artists possess: the ability to fuse complex jazz voicings and ever-changing, interesting rhythmic ideas into their tunes in a way that is accessible, while still having great hooks, catchy melodies, and strong songwriting material. His piano chops are cool, confident, and professional; his vocals are smooth and effortless.

If you crossed Stevie Wonder, Brian McKnight, Rahsaan Patterson, Robin Thicke and 60's jazz piano together all in one, you'd get an idea of Cusson's sound. This CD will likely have huge cross-genre appeal. Can't recommend it highly enough, and I'm excited to see what Cusson has in store for us with his next album.

Songs I'd start out with:
-Comfortable - A jazzy cover of an early John Mayer song most people are not aware of; there is some gorgeous Take 6 / Queen / Jellyfish like vocal harmony in the middle of this song that is very impressive.
-Heaven - Smooth, sexy, funky neo-soul sound with some great changes throughout the song.
-One of Those Nights - Gorgeously sung jazz ballad; guitars/drums/keys are mellow and provide a great backdrop.
-Like a Lover - A Stevie Wonder-like piano ballad; really highlights Cusson's vocal ability, the intensity builds as the song continues.
-Take Me Along - Again a great fusion of jazzy + pop...even has a little flamenco-y feel in the middle.

So pure so raw so real. I absolutely love this song. I stumbled on this song on pandora. I love his jazz neo soul flavor. A definate buy. Reminds me a little of bruno mars jon b and robin thicke.

I discovered this cd by accident when I was on Youtube looking for another version of "Like A Lover." His rendition brought me to tears! After that I looked for anything that he ever did. I appreciate his skills as a pianist, his vocal ability and the very Take 6 style of harmony that he employs. This is a talent that has been long over due.

Matt is soulful and smooth. The new man on the block in music. Would recommend in getting his new Christmas tunes too.

As a female, I just throw this on my iTunes, close my eyes, and pretend my boyfriend has magically morphed into Matt Cusson.

Seriously, his voice is beyond amazing. His songs are original, melodic and free of autotune!

Male or female, any true fan of music MUST own this album.
