5.0 out of 5 stars Too bad he's gone... 23 Oct 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
....because he'd be HUGE today as a singer, and he'd enjoy the enormous celebrity he, sadly, was born too early to enjoy when he was alive. What a beautiful, soothing, distinctive wonder he's the only one Charlie Parker was willing to do an album of mixed instrumental/vocal charm. What a tragedy of social history that he was handsome, talented, intelligent...and black, before time and social change allowed him the success he should have had. Listen to this, and you too, will become a fan...posthumously.

4.0 out of 5 stars I Just Dropped By To Say Hello 18 April 2011
Format:Audio CD
Lovely, brand new CD. It was packaged in a cardboard sleeve instead of the plastic case, which was a tiny bit disappointing. Otherwise, spot on.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 14 Oct 2011
Format:Audio CD
Like many people (I expect) I cam to Johnny Hartman through the Bridges of Madison County soundtrack. However, this album was a serious disappointment. I find Hartman's delivery contrived and grating and the orchestrations are sometimes plain odd.

5.0 out of 5 stars you lie awake and think about the girl 2 April 2004
By David G. Smith - Published on
Format:Audio CD
I was listening to the Carly Simon cover of Wee Small Hours and I said " I bet this person has never heard Johnny Hartman's version of this because they would've never tried it." I am not a comparer but this is easily one of the gems of vocal performance. Yes, Frank is god, yadda yadda yadda, go to Vegas and have a drink for me, but this guy is the full bill of goods.
I would love to use this in a film version Of Catcher in The Rye, because there is such a wonderful atmosphere about this.
The cd as a whole is a little loungier(he covers charade, for god's sake) and purists jonesing for the Hartman Coltrane should just listen to that again....but it is still a great jazz record. Some of the arrangements are amazing. A couple of times the rhythm section drops out, leaving Johnny with one instrument. These moments are simplicity itself, but heartstoppingly gorgeous.
And hartman is a master. Pure and simple
oh, and the cover is why I bought the evocative of a certain period.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is an absolute must have 28 Nov 2001
By "avalon1006" - Published on
Format:Audio CD
This was the first Johnny Hartman album I purchased and my all time favorite. Even my family, who doesn't really enjoy my taste in music, thoroughly enjoys this treasure.
The song How Sweet It Is To Be In Love has to be the greatest song for a wedding there ever was. I plan on playing this at my wedding, if I ever get married.
The Don't Call It Love song is one of my teenage son's favorite tunes. It is funny and witty without being rude or mean.
Stairway to the Stars is a beautiful song that will make you melt. I love to play it on rainy days.
If I'm Lucky is also a great song for weddings. I love to play this song and reminisce about how truly lucky I am to have such beautiful kids and a great partner.
To make a long review shorter, get this album you will be glad you did it makes you appreciate what you have.
I can't say enough about how great this collection is.

4.0 out of 5 stars a nice soundtrack for a romantic evening 24 Dec 1999
By Rob Watkins - Published on
Format:Audio CD
johnny hartman sings for a room lit only by a few candles. his baritone hovers over the air, draping all in a warm blanket. his choice of songs convey the feelings and the thoughts that complete the scene. hank jones adds just a sparkle, brother elvin keeps the time relaxed. mr. hartman is subtly echoed by jim hall and kenny burrell gracefully playing their guitars. by the time's its all over, there are only eyes for one another. if that sounds like the evening you need, this is the place to set the mood. it's not noted in the insipid liner notes, but this album certainly complements hartman's other '63 release on impulse-- johnny hartman and john coltrane; for romanticism and balladry. a very fine album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cool like the cover 9 Feb 2002
By Scott E. Porter - Published on
Format:Audio CD
In contrast to one of the other reviews, the cover, to me, says it all. This is a very cool album. The album is worth every cent for just one song "In the wee small hours". I honestly thought that the man was preaching to me. The only reason to not give it 5 stars is because 5 is reserved for the Coletrane collaboration and Song's from the Heart.

5.0 out of 5 stars smooth as silk 4 Aug 1999
By james lockwood (|) - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Johnny Hartman possessed a rich baritone in the Billy Eckstine tradition. Here his delivery is flawless, the accompaniment is near perfect. Burrell and Hall glide, Hank Jones is steady and Jacquet is both gruff and mellow at the same time. Elvin Jones takes a break from the emotional turmoil that usually comes with a Coltrane session and produces drumming of great subtlety. Hartman takes even the most banal song and caresses the lyrics like a loving mother holding a new born baby. If any of you guys have a woman friend, play this CD for them. If the woman doesn't like this CD, find another woman quick!!
