At last, I've finally managed to find a recording by Jason Howard. He has one of the most beautiful voices I've ever heard. I've been lucky enough to see him perform live twice with the Welsh National Opera (most recently alongside Grammy Award winner, Rebecca Evans in La Boheme as Marcello)and he's just outstanding.
I've always loved musicals & opera and I can honestly say I've never heard anyone sing these showtunes better even though I have Howard Keel's & Bryn Terfel's recordings of the same songs and I love them all.
The duets with Ria Jones & Jill Washington are beautiful.
I do hope that Jason will record more albums, especially opera. I've looked on his website and there doesn't seem to be any information regarding recordings. It's such a shame that he is not more widely known outside the opera circle though. His wonderful voice deserves to be heard more often.
I know I'm not much good at writing reviews (for which I apologise) so I usually only tend to bother to comment on books, cds & dvds that I've really, passionately enjoyed and this is one of them.
If, as I do, you like the classical type singers such as Josh Groban, John Owen-Jones, Rhydian Roberts, Russell Watson, Jonathan Ansell, etc you will love Jason Howard.
