Not my favorites!
on January 28, 2007
It's hard for me to give a Peter White cd 3 stars- he is my favorite jazz artist, and I have almost all his cd's- but that is what I'm doing. The guitar playing is flawless, and many songs on the cd deserve 5 stars, but I don't think the vocals on "Deja Vu" and a few other songs add anything to the songs- they detract from Peter's fabulous guitar playing. The song "Mister Magic" doesn't seem to belong on this cd, I personally can't stand this hyper, crazy song.
I listen to jazz to relax. I have never liked the vocals on these cd's. I wish they'd keep them purely instrumental. I much preferred Peter's candlelight vol. 2 cd of greatest hits.
On the plus side, "What does it take to win your love" and "Sunny" are standouts.
