Despite being precociously young, singer Alexander Stewart has been gigging on the jazz scene for a good few years now, so in a strange way it seems that this album has been a long time coming. I suppose if asked what I was expecting, I'd have to say a selection of Great American Songbook standards and a couple of originals as 'filler'. Well, straight off one thing stands that preconception on its head - pianist/MD Alex Webb's The Hard Way (with China Moses, who has a filthy laugh) is not there as grouting, but is one of the album's stand-out tracks. Stewart has taken the eclectic Jamie Cullum (or Kurt Elling, with his latest The Gate) route and included a few very unexpected but ultimately pleasant surprises. With Elling it was tackling King Crimson and Joe Jackson, here it is a winning re-vamp of Morrissey/Marr with Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want/Last Night I Dreamt. In fact, for me it is the poppier material (including Black and Gold and the radio-friendly Call Me) that makes this album sound like the work of a young blood, although he is equally confident putting a fresh slant on old warhorses such as Young At Heart or Too Marvellous For Words and both arrangements and playing (Gary Crosby, Nathaniel Facey, Frank Griffith, producer Andy Cleyndert on one track) are punchy and swinging. I'd have actually liked another original in the mix, but it's a strong opening gambit for this young man. And he's well worth catching live.

Saw this young man live last night as support for Dionne Warwick at Manchesters Bridgewater Hall. Yes, he was in his home town, and yes he had a great crowd behind him, but boy can he sing. For such a young man his voice sounds as though he has been around for a long time, and in a sense he has.
This CD has all you need for a good all round jazz cd. Some standards with a twist and some new material, and some killer sax. Michael Buble may be in danger of losing his crown to a young pretender, but with Alex, there is no pretense, he will be around for a long time.

I'm a fan of pre WW2 swing bands and singers - Basie, Ellington, Goodman, Sinatra etc - and quite like today's Young Pretenders - Buble, Callum etc - but I've only just heard of Alexander.

In fact, it was just last night at Birmingham's Symphony Hall where he was the support to Dionne Warwick. (BTW, she was fantastic, despite a heavy cold)

Alex and the band were great! Hard to believe he's only 24 - he has the 'make it look easy' style of Sinatra mid way thru his career! He doesn't sound like Sinatra or Buble or anyone but himself but he REMINDs the listener of all these great singers.

Equally at home with slow numbers, up tempo, standards, originals and just about anything else you'd like to hear, the band match him note for note, nuance for nuance.

This CD manages to capture the sound and 'feel' of his live show; warm and embracing, it draws you in. Seemingly simple the choice of songs betrays the artistry behind that simplicity - having said that I did long to hear him do Fly Me to the Moon or Mack the Knife or I Left My Heart! Just 'cause I love those songs and think he'd really do them justice.

Features a nice duet - "Hard Way" - with China Moses, who as some may know (I didn't) is Dee Dee Bridgewater's daughter and some fine sax playing from a guy called Nathaniel Facey and Jazz Jamaica's bassist Gary Crosby. Some backing band for a debut album!

A modern sounding jazz album with a style that is steeped in swing history, I'd 100% recommend this to all jazz/swing lovers and anyone who just appreciates a great voice!

I went to the launch of Alexander's debut albumn, All or Nothing At All, at Pizza Express in Soho, and was so impressed, I bought it!

A splice of Michael Buble and Jaimie Cullum - BUT, with his own unique voice - and he's only just 24!! The songs are mostly covers - the best, in my opinion being, Call me - the Blondie song, which is brought right up to date with a snappy, upbeat version.

The hand penned song is the strongest on the albumn ' The Hard Way' - a fabulous song, with all the ingredients to make it a number one hit - IF this great new british talent can get airplay and publicity.

It made number 2 in the I-Tunes Jazz charts - and Alexander has released this albumn himself - no record deal yet.

Definitely a name you will be hearing more of.....
