Outstanding MIXED BAG,
This review is from: Traditional (Audio CD)
Listen...for sum1 so young 2 produce a work of such quality is...just simply a credit 2 talent. The 'auld' foggies ( see the below reviews ) that critize his attempts 2 reach a new audience with classics... albiet variations on them... & attempt 2 inject a new infusion of orginality with modern day takes on 'THAT'S LIFE' ( not the Sinatra song btw ), the awesome 'Never 2 far Away from A Song',the stomping 'Happy Togther' & even, how dare he try 2 b diffrent stand out 'Traditional'!!
This is an album that wants 2 reach out & cater for all. It is vibrant & soothing in parts and yes, it might not 'gel'... i have 2 agree but, nonetheless it is a triumph & a testament 2 a great young British talent who has alot more to accomplish &, who needs 2 b better recognised 4 wot he is trying 2 do... which is reinventing the classic standards in an otherwise dreary modern music world. Hats off..i thank you ;)
