Concord, 2003, CD
Instrument: Male Vocals
Jazz Ruler Type: Ballads, Blues
O’s Notes: Balladeer, Michael Feinstein partners up with one of today’s premier songwriters, Jimmy Webb. They include and extend the Great American Songbooks with fifteen songs. Each of Webb’s compositions describes elements and emotions in making and breaking love. The accompaniment is subtle and supportive; sometimes just a piano and sometimes extending to include a rhythm section and full string orchestra. At no time does the music interfere with Michael’s delivery. His voice is a perfect instrument for these works.
