Album Notes
“Jazz Singer Danny Freyer is a new voice that must be heard" - Jazz & Blues Critic Willard Manus

"One of the best jazz vocals CDs Ive heard in a long time…I'm enjoying having him in heavy rotation on my stereo at home and on the air" - Mark Landesman, WWOZ New Orleans 90.7 FM

“Effortly straddles the musical divide between big band and bebop...Unforced elegance…absolute engaging charm..” “…impeccable timing, warmth, lyrics of profound wit, and impressive vocalese.....Freyer shines” - critic C.J. Bond, Jazmusic


Described as having a classic, yet contemporary sound, the LA-based vocalist and songwriter has a swinging time with such standards as “That Old Black Magic,” “Begin the Beguine” and ”Stardust,” as well as putting his own lyrics to legendary saxophonist, Charlie Parker's solo on the classic composition, “Yardbird Suite.” Freyer, a rich-timbered baritone brings his original style to song interpretations and also reveals his songwriting talents with title track “Must Be Love, or Else I’m Drunk,” and the upbeat “Tanked as a Fish, Buzzed Bombed and Blitzed.”

Ella Fitzgerald’s pianist (and accompanist to Mel Tormé, Bing Crosby, Anita O’Day, Sammy Davis Jr.) Paul T. “Scooby” Smith (1922-2013) mentored Freyer on arrangements and performance for a number of tunes on the CD.

“Freyer shows off his vocal chops to good effect on all ten cuts, impressing with his warmth, sincerity, and musicality,” says jazz critic Willard Manus.

From its bouncy Jazz standards to the New Orleans Dixieland-infused “Lean Baby,” to the extended tear-jerker, “Promise Me You’ll Remember” (The Godfather III Love Theme), with its lush string arrangement and captivating sax solo to complement the singer’s intimate expression, “Must Be Love” takes listeners on a colorful musical journey.

On this album, Freyer is backed up by such stalwart musicians as Jeff Elwood on saxophone, pianist Matt Politano, bassist Roger Shew, trumpeter Tony Guerrero, with background vocals by Dannielle DeAndrea as well as the album's producer, Evan Stone, on drums.
