Biography

Biographyby Evan C. Gutierrez

John Barrowman was one of few musical theater personalities to make a successful foray into a recording career. Though many stage stars release an album at some point in their careers, seldom are they met with chart success and longevity. Barrowman was born in Glasgow but raised, from the age of nine, in Illinois. Throughout his high-school years, Barrowman ... Read more in Amazon's John Barrowman Store

JOHN BARROWMAN SWINGS COLE PORTER with the London Pro Arte Orchestra.
First Night Records, CASTCD 91. Produced by Stewart Mackintosh.
Just One Of Those Things/ What Is This Thing Called Love/ In The Still Of The Night/ I Happen To Like New York/ Anything Goes/ After You, Who? / Ca C'Est L'Amour/ Don't Fence Me In/ Miss Otis Regrets/ Do I Love You/ You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To/ Ev'ry Time We Say Goodbye/ It's Alright With Me/ Easy To Love (bonus track from 'Anything Goes' 2003 cast recording). Running time approx 44 minutes.
Rarely does one have the perfect combination of performer, material and orchestrations that can be found in this new album from West End and Broadway star John Barrowman who can currently be seen in the hit Cole Porter musical 'Anything Goes' at The Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, London. The album comprising 13 new performances and a bonus track from the cast album of 'Anything Goes' is from the very start 'a breath of fresh air' and a most wonderful set of standards. John performs the songs in a number of different styles some reminiscent of West End staging, utilising all that he has learnt in the many musicals in which he has appeared, others are more cabaret in inspiration and some are in a grand concert interpretation all backed by the London Pro Arte Orchestra. I particularly liked his treatment of 'Ev'ry time we say goodbye' with it's little heard opening verse and a full version running over 4 minutes. Such is his skill that he can make even the most difficult of numbers sound the easiest to perform and this is the test of any vocalist. He passes with flying colours. All of these Cole Porter numbers are classics and there are now definitive John Barrowman performances of 'After you, who?' 'What is this thing called love?

This is a fantastic album!! It arrived in the post yesterday and I can't stop listening to it!! Anyone who was a fan of John in 'The Sound of Musicals' on BBC1 over the last few weeks will adore this album and if you're just looking for an album from a guy who can really sing THIS IS THE ONE TO BUY!! His natural talent and faultless voice make him so easy to listen to and suit the style of Cole Porter so well. I am really looking forward to his next album being released!!

I bought this CD after seeing John in 'De-lovely' and I wasn't disappointed.I've listened to it every day for the past 2 weeks and it just gets better and better. His voice is incredible and perfectly suits Cole Porter's songs.John's version of 'Anything Goes' will stick in your head for weeks - you won't be able to stop singing it! This is the first John Barrowman CD I've bought and I'm certain it won't be the last.I just love the guy!!

I recommend this to Barrowman fans who just can't get enough of his voice! The treatment of Cole Porter here is very different from ones I usually hear (like Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole, etc), so it is interesting...The bonus track 'Easy to Love' is in my opinion better than the earlier recordings Barrowman has done, both in his singing style and orchestral/band backing. It is also my favourite track at the moment.

A modern treatment that is not so emotionally intense but as a result easier to listen to.

buy it!

Absolutely fabulous. If class is what you like then that is exactly what you get with this album. John Barrowman's voice does great justice to some of Cole Porter's best creations. Great choice of classic songs and I defy anyone not to want to high kick and sing along especially if listening on surround sound.

John Barrowman is THE consummate musical star of our age; an accomplished actor, good-looking and with the best voice to emerge from the West End in fifteen years. This album of Cole Porter songs is arguably his best to date. Faultess - enough said.

Okay I admit I had never heard of this guy until I saw him playing "Captain Jack" in "Dr Who" and I'll admit his resemblance to Tom Cruise sent me to the net to find out more about him - which is where I discovered that he sings as well! So I bought the CD and played it non-stop all day. Good looks and a great voice? I defy any woman not to be reduced to a jelly by "Do I love you?". I only wish the answer were "Yes"...Highly recommended.
