O’s Notes: Gary has a romantically warm voice that is supported by strong musicians including Lew Soloff (flugelhorn), Chris Bolti (t), Billy Childs (p), Elvin Jones (d) and a lush string section. He’s joined by Paula Cole who adds soulful vocals on “Call Me Irresponsible”. There are 15 songs in the collection. Each is one of Gary’s favorites and there are at least a few that will be appealing to most listeners. We preferred the tracks from Romancing The Screen, true ballads!
