ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Joe Yazbeck's an out and out crooner. There's a warmth and a sincerity that tells you that this is a man who loves what he's doing. He's hand picked a medley of songs that already sound like classics and delivers them with a voice they so richly deserve." TONY MICHAELIDES, Former promoter and publicist for U2, David Bowie, Peter Gabriel, Genesis, The Police, Whitney Houston.

Joe Yazbeck is a vocal performer who combines the tradition and artistry of the best singers with a style that is his alone. When you hear him, terms like old school meets new school may come to mind but then you realize he’s his own school. His powerful and expansive vocal techniques are never just for show because they serve his higher purpose of expressing the core or essence of every song he sings. That's a true artist.

Norman Thalheimer, jazz pianist and Broadway composer, is a pure Pisces from head to fin. Swimming backwards and forwards at the same time in a vast musical sea, he hears beyond the shoreline to the siren call of an unknown future, while revering the musical giants that have come before him. His songs are on the edge of sounding strangely familiar yet they are utterly original and derived from his own creative sources.

Joe Yazbeck, Vocals

A Near Perfect Vocal/Jazz Christmas CD! My Highest Recommendation!
Wow!

While I like almost every christmas cd I buy, there are only a handful that I can truly say I enjoy from start to end..... and this is one of them. Everything, from Joe Yazbeck's singing to the backing jazz trio music to the song selection and to the production, all is simply near perfect.

Joe Yazbeck has such an amzing voice and he knows how to use it so well. I have to compare him to the likes of Tony Bennett, Michael Buble, and so many other great jazz/EZ listening singers out there, from the past to the present. And he is so fortunate to have such a wonderful jazz trio backing him up.

"The Christmas Song," which opens the cd, is truly upbeat and begins things off on a high note, so high that it is a standout track on the cd and one of my favorite versions of the song ever recorded. It may even be the best song on the cd but that is hard to say because an original (?) song, "Christmas Day Blue," is just so amazing also. Then again, so are all the songs. This is a cd I really can put on from start to end, not something I always do. I suppose I could wish "Silent Night" had vocals, too, as it is the lone instrumental song but it has never gotten in the way when I play the cd.

And with that all above, I will end where I began in the title of my review, this is a near perfect vocal/jazz christmas cd and receives my highest recommendation.
