2.0 out of 5 stars Moonlight Seranade, September 28, 2012
This review is from: Moonlight Serenade (Ws) (DVD)
This movie was about a hat check girl at a night club who wanted to sing at the Club. She met a Piano player who was a sucessful financer After many on again off again relationships (boring) They finally connect and they appear together at the "Last Stop" Night club as a hit.

BUT THE MUSIC WAS FANTASTIC - Joey DiFancisco - great jaZz organ player was the producer and appeared throuhout the movie playing his Hammond B 3 He also had a few lines as well. The hat check girl "Chloie" AMY ADAMS sang beautifully and often.

It is worth seeing if you like good jazz over easy music and listening to the "Gret American" Songbook


The movie was 2* but music was 4*

3.0 out of 5 stars OK - but missed the boat, October 12, 2007
Stacey is one of my favoite singers and she does a nice job on vocals with great arrangements. I just feel it is too bad that she chose this direction of new songs for her break out CD on a major label. Some of these are nice -maybe two or three would be OK- but not selecting many of the fantastic songs from the "Great American Song Book" is a big disapointment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ever Evolving, March 30, 2005
In this newest Four Freshmen CD you still hear that traditional sound that has made them so unique over the past 50+ years. Yet you can hear so much more as this is just not another nastalgic group of hanger-oners. These are all new arrangements where the current group of Freshmen add there own style and modern twists. I have never heard Early Autumn done better as you truly get some great harmonizing.

If you like vocal music -whether you have been Freshmen fans in the past or not, you will like this.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite Krall CD !, December 2, 2003
This is my favorite Krall CD as she swings much more on this Nat King Cole Trio tribute (not just sultry singing like her newer Cds) . Also she plays the piano more. I would buy her CDs just to listen to here play the piano as she is one the best jazz pianist on the scene today. I like her song selection which includes Hit that Jive Jack, Frim Fram Sauce, Deed I Do. Baby baby all the time, Gee Baby ain't I good to you . Her trio (like the Nat King Cole Trio)with no drums - Russel Malone on guitar and Paul Keller on bass really sound good together.

5.0 out of 5 stars He has the whole package, July 12, 2003
This review is from: Peter Cincotti (Audio CD)
Peter Cincotti singing, song writing, piano playing are all well showcased on this CD. He has all this plus good looks and a young age (18). Some may say he sounds like Harry Connick, Jr, but he is defintely his own man. I think he will be a great jazz star of the future. It is exciting to see such young talent come forth. I was at Jazz Showcase in Chicago last week and saw a great 18 year old jazz pianist named Taylor Eigsti. I hope you all will add these two young artist to your CD collection as they are tomorrow's jazz stars--TODAY!.

5.0 out of 5 stars At Long Last, July 12, 2003
This review is from: Michael Buble (Audio CD)
For the past few years there has been a number of female (pop/jazz) singers that have hit the scene, such as Dina Krall, Jane Monheit, Casandra Wilson and Norah Jones but really no male singers. At long last you can now put away your Tonny Bennet, Bobby Darin, Frank Sinatra, Mel Torme recordings. This is a break out CD for Micheal Buble'who is bond to be a force in pop/jazz singing for years to come. He swings like Bobby Darin and croons like Sinatra, but yet he has enough of his own style and sound in that he is not just trying to copying them.
He along with Peter Cincotti are two new exciting male singers who are "musts" to have in your CD collection. I rate this a a strong 5 star rating.

5.0 out of 5 stars Live in the new millennium-Four Freshmen, December 22, 2002
Even though the voices change over the years, The unique Freshmen Sound is still intact. This change has been going on for over 50 years and it is hard to believe how good this transition has been. Each group brings its own uniqueness and personality. This live recording includes many of the Freshmen hits from old...Route 66, Graduation Days, Ponciana, Day by Day. They have added enough newer material that makes it a good blend of the past as well as the new. This includes Love Dance (a beautiful solo by Bob Ferreira), I fall in Love too easily, Walkin' my baby back home. Their final cut is a song (Their hearts were full of spring) that the lyrics and message stays with you for days. If you like Singers Unlimited or Manhattan Transfer then you LOVE this CD.
