Album Notes
"Captured Alive does just what it sets out to do. It captures Patrick Arena onstage singing his wonderful heart out. It's the next best thing to being there!
...Marle Becker..WBAI FM NYC

"With his new album, Captured Alive, Patrick Arena can hope to cement the reputation back in his native south western PA. that the singer established in New York's cabaret-jazz circuit. His is a style of music-filled with winking sentimentality and fascination for a well crafted tune and quirky lyric. Arena's own compositions (like the swaggering, bitchy "Generally Rotten" and the push-the-censors "Hot Dog") fit right in with the classics such as Hendricks-Silvers "Doodlin'."
.....Justin Hopper-Pittsburgh City Paper

"Captured Alive gives you Arena at his peak, first as a showman (that he feels energized by his contact with the audience is delightfully apparent from the uplifting
opener 'We Open Doors' the the 'leave 'em-wanting-more' finale, a rendition of "Orange Colored Sky") and also as a superb lyric interpreter and creative writer. He wrote or
co-wrote nine of the songs in this warm,jazzy collection, two of which appear as bonus tracks."
...Doug Shanaberger / Oberserver -Reporter

"Patrick Arena's singing style has taken a journey from cabaret to jazz, and it's worth the trip. His new album, "Captured Alive," finds him at the height of his craft. He wisely relies mostly on his orignal songs, but they feel right at home along side the few jazz
standards present"......JD Doyle Audiofile

"Captured Alive is marvelous: a beautiful voice that really did touch me. The opening is fantastic... and the band is terrific. The music is great, a perfect combination of blues/ballades/beat/jazz"........Frank Van Engelen-- Bluesiana Radio , Purmernd, The Netherlands

"Patrick has a good sense of swing and sounds like he's enjoying himself immensely on the CD. His enunciation is clear, his lyrics are very hip and he's gathered a group of fine musicians in Skip Peck and his two sons, Nathan and Alex. And saxophonist Eric DeFade is as great as always."...... Bob Studebaker WDUQ-FM

Brenda Jean Searcy

I love it!
I love it! Swingin' jazz out of Washington county, PA with a beautiful baritone, a hot sax, and a great sense of humor!

Rosemary Loar

Smokey vocals, smoking band, tunes that really cook! Buy this CD!
Patrick Arena is at the top of the heap of male crooners. This album stand up to the best of the jazz vocalists. As an added bonus he has included some of his orgianals which are both whimsical and sensual. My favorites cuts were Hot Dog, Never Cry Again and Do You Know What...New Orleans. Buy this CD!!

James Carpenter

Musical, fun, moving
Patrick's vocals and his very tight band make this a new favorite in my collection. With some songs fun and "randy" as he says, others thoughtful and moving, it's always an inspiring, uplifting hour when I plug in Captured Alive.

Nancy Raz

He's a super songwriter and I love the originals, but ain't "Doodlin" so much fu
Good singer, good songs, good musicians, great fun to listen to!

Cathy & Julie
