Format: Audio CD
Ben sings songs mainly from the forties with a big band conducted by Tim Ouimette. This is a different style to the style that Ben became famous for - namely soul songs or Latin sounding sounds often with strings accompaniment.
While Ben's voce is not as powerful as it used to be, it is is still tuneful and he still sings with lots of feeling.I think that the best song is "Song for Jennie", a ballad song for which Ben wrote the lyrics and Tim Ouimette wrote the music- I presume that it is about Ben's mother.I also particularly like "Little Mama" which is a toe-tapping upbeat song.

This is vintage Ben in a style that's got to be heard by all his fans, young and old.Check out the ballads " Just For A Thrill" and "Cry". He is in a class by himself.Working with him in the studio was sheer joy and a memorable experience. Jim Clouse, Engineer and Producer
