O’s Notes: Jack takes his time singing thirteen of his favorites from the Great American Songbook. He has the backing of a fine band centered on the Craig Larson (p) Trio. There is a wealth of guest artists and the even use synth strings that are rather convincing! The best of the guest musicians includes Pete Christlieb (sax), Joe LaBarbara (d) and John Pisano (g). The arrangements are atypical without drifting too far from center. We liked the covers of “The Shadow of Your Smile”, “My Funny Valentine” and “Meditation”. Jack puts his signature on each of these warm tunes and makes them easy to embrace.
