A compilation of concert and live recordings of Frank Sinatra´s greatest songs.
Frankk Sinatra was an American singer, actor, and producer who was one of the most popular and influential musical artists of the 20th century.
Major labels proved not to be a welcome fit for retro-soul-blues revivalist Eli "Paperboy" Reed. Neither Come and Get It!, his 2010 album for Capitol, nor 2014's gussied-up wannabe crossover Nights Like This brought in the wider audience they so desperately worked to attain, leaving the guitarist to pursue an indie direction for 2016's My Way Home. The title makes it plain that Reed believes he's the prodigal son returning to his roots and, fittingly, My Way Home has a considerable gospel bent in its 11 songs. Since 2013, Reed has been teaching an after-school program called Gospel for Teens in Harlem and that sensibility infuses My Way Home, turning the record into a testament to reconnecting to R&B roots of all kinds.
The combination of these Nancy Wilson albums, Hollywood: My Way and Broadway: My Way, provide pleasant, easy listening interpretations of Broadway and Hollywood standards. These 24 tracks - including "Tonight" from West Side Story, "Moon River" from Breakfast at Tiffany's, and "Days of Wine and Roses" from Days of Wine and Roses - hold up exceptionally well. The LPs were originally released on Capitol Records in 1963 and 1964, and had been out of print until EMI reissued them on a compact disc in 2001.
The ultimate collection of favourite tracks from the ever-popular romantic song stylist. Paul Albert Anka is a Canadian-American singer, songwriter, and actor. Anka became famous in the late 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s with hit songs like "Diana", "Lonely Boy", "Put Your Head on My Shoulder", and "(You're) Having My Baby". He wrote such well-known music as the theme for The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson and one of Tom Jones's biggest hits, "She's a Lady", as well as the English lyrics for Frank Sinatra's signature song, "My Way", which has been covered by many including Elvis Presley. He was inducted into Canada's Walk of Fame in 2005.
Lenny Williams’ new CD, Still in the Game, is a testament to his staying power. The 12-track album has a little something for everyone, from contemporary R&B to smooth jazz to down home blues. Actually, Still in the Game evolves from contemporary to old school, but still in a contemporary package, musically speaking. As with many independent albums released by legendary R&B artists, on Still in the Game the keyboard is used to replace horn arrangements, and all too often the drum program can take away from both the song and the artist. Those flaws aside, the album does grow on you as it progresses.
