Product Description

Amazon.com

Freddy Cole is a songwriter's dream, able to impart his own distinct personality to a song while remaining faithful to its lyric and melody. He surrounds a song with the warm presence of his voice, but within that breathy glow, he's capable of the subtlest inflection, from irony to wary satisfaction and the most wistful sense of loss. He's also able to swing masterfully at medium tempos, as he does on "I Remember You" and the relaxed rendition of "It's Impossible." While Cole can stamp his own identity on a familiar tune, he can also bring out the best in an unexpected song. "Merry-Go-Round," by the team of Bobby Scott and Herb Martin, stands out here, as does a medley of lesser-known songs recorded by Cole's brother Nat, "I Realize Now" and "I Miss You So." The settings are always apt, whether it's Cole's own piano and rhythm section contributing to the intimacy of "Forgive My Heart" and the ebullient swing of Cole Porter's "You're Sensational," or Cole's ceding the piano chair to Cedar Walton, adding a horn section, and sharing several songs with distinguished soloists. Trombonist Steve Davis adds a crisp solo to "Watching You, Watching Me," a Bill Withers song that readily adapts itself to the light-bop groove, and tenor saxophonist Eric Alexander complements Cole's voice with some thoughtful fills on "It's Impossible."

Hate to compare him (as he oftentimes is) to his brother Nat, but he sounds just like what Nat would be if he did live long enough to reach Freddy's age and stuck to a trio format. His vocal range may be limited, but he uses it to the max. No one can sing a song as warm as Freddy. Listen to the title track and see if you don't find yourself feeling wistful and melancholic over something you might not even be able to relate to. He is that damn good.

Although I haven't had the pleasure of listening to the entire CD, I've heard several cuts from it (Merry-Go-Round, Forgive My Heart, etc.) on various radio programs and they are absolutely wonderful! Sad and oh so sweet. If you're yearning for the slow soulful jazz of days gone by, pick up this CD!

When you hear Freddie sing, you really feel what he is singing about. The most expressive vocalist alive. The musicianship is top notch, with Freddie's fine tasty (Juliard Grad) playing. Herm Burney's a newcomer on the recording scene on upright bass! We need to hear more of him.
