5.0 out of 5 stars Timeless!, 10 May 2014
This review is from: Hooray For Love (Audio CD)
On his 12th studio album since 1991 Curtis Stigers has delivered a warm and intimate collection woven around some much loved standards and a handful of contemporary numbers including a spine tingling reading of Steve Earle's gorgeous "Valentine's Day" which is worth the price of admission on its own.

Old and seasoned thought the standards may be they remain a benchmark for the craft of the songwriter and Stigers sounds as though he is singing them just for you and enjoying himself while he does so.

There is a delightful duet with the talented Cyrille Aimee on "You Make Me Feel So Young" and "The Way You Look Tonight" is a timeless interpretation of one of the most beautiful songs from the last century.

The quintet of piano, trumpet, bass, guitar and drums - plus the Stigers tenor sax - is perfectly balanced to make the standards as fresh and original as a new dawn and give new material such as "Hooray for Love" the sound of a swing classic. This is an album that is, by degrees, sweet, sentimental, sophisticated and utterly charming.
