Let's Go Out Tonight
Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
Singer/Saxophonist Curtis Stigers releases Let's Go Out Tonight, a departure from Stigers' previous projects, which sidesteped the Great American Songbook completely. Rather, it includes a vibrant cross-section of pop, folk, country and soul songs from songwriters ranging from Bob Dylan, Eddie Floyd and Richard Thompson to Jeff Tweedy, Hayes Carll and David Poe, whose "Everyone Loves Lovers" was crafted expressly for Stigers. Though jazz has been integral to Curtis Stigers' musical vocabulary throughout his career, his transformation from rock/pop headliner (of the sort that filled stadiums and made Leno and Letterman appearances) to jazz vocalist is barely a decade old, dating from the release of his debut Concord album Baby Plays Around in 2001.

With many albums, I find that there are one or two songs I really enjoy and others that are just so-so, but these songs are so uniformly enchanting that I cannot pick a favorite (or least favorite).
If you are new to Curtis Stigers, I recommend this as a great place to start. If you a long time fan (as were the folks next to us at the concert), I suspect that you'll also enjoy this.
Prior to this CD, I was unaware of this performer, but now very favorably impressed. This is a top shelf product.
The only thing that could make this effort better; is the total elimination of any rhymes in the songs, to me its like having bubble gum stuck on the bottom of the table in the restaurant, not OK. Still a great effort.
I wish this CD the best!
I didn't know most of the original tracks that Curtis covered here. I went ahead and sought them out, and it's incredible how much Curtis was able to transform these songs.
