Product description

Product Description

Bobby Valentino s new album, Pat-a-Cake, Pat -a-Cake , is Handmade Music in the true sense of the term. What you hear is what the musicians played and sung at the time: no computers, no synthesisers, no sampling, no auto-tune and no drum machines were used in any way. This more traditional approach adds liveliness and an organic heart that makes the music breath in a very natural way. It also makes it quicker and therefore cheaper. "Pat-a-Cake,Pat -a-Cake" is a very individual album showcasing as it does a particular take on a very stylised series of songs. Bobby Valentino has co-written twelve of the fourteen songs on the album and is backed by a stellar band that also features cameos from Martin Belmont and B J Cole. The songs hark back to an era where swing held sway,suits were sharp and lyrics were too. Nobody who has seen Bobby lead his Americana-style band, Los Pistoleros, will be surprised that he has moved from being a sideman and into the spotlight. On Pat -a-Cake, Pat -a-Cake it s Bobby s singing and song writing that comes to the fore. He s definitely a born-again golden throated crooner in the Bing Crosby, Dean Martin vein giving it a lot of suave over tunes that evoke the pre-rock era and hint at the swing jazz of Stephane Grappelli and Django Reinhardt. Sixty years ago he would have been a huge star looks like Gable, sings like Crosby .

Review

His new solo album...shows how good a player he is, with demonstrations of fine, and at times, fiery violin work on songs that range from boogie and blues to western swing - *** -- The Guardian, July 15th 2011
