I have bought every single Rick Braun disc since Beat Street, and in the days before MP3s I actually bought several of his discs to give out as gifts. He is my absolute favorite jazz performer regardless of genre. I even liked his vocal on the song Love Will Find A Way from his Notorious disc, it was tailored to his voice. But this......

I am listening to it on Spotify right now and just do not understand it. Rick is a wonderful artist and I guess he gets do to a pet project considering his long line of success, but please, leave this to Connick and Buble'. Go ahead and do an instrumental Chet Baker-style disc and throw in one vocal song (well chosen), but an entire disc of strings and vocals???

This is the first disc I am not buying. So sorry, but I cannot do this. I vote with my dollars, and I cannot vote for this.

Two stars because his horn playing is good, but avoid this if you are looking for a good jazz disc. Check out Notorious or Shake It Up instead, those are true classics. Or just go buy a Chet Baker disc if you want jazz vocals.

Rick, I hope this product gives you a feeling of satisfaction and completeness. And I hope this is a phase that passes quickly. Play real jazz if you want, just do it with your horn, please.
