I have always believed that the foundation for a true life consists of faith, love, trust, respect and an open heart. Of these, faith has been the guiding constant. That faith has led me to explore a personal musical expression which has culminated in the release of my debut CD. recording, GOT A DATE WITH FATE. This project is a compilation of musical standards with vibrant new arrangements by the stunningly talented pianist, composer and arranger, JON WERKING. The vocals are further supported by two extraordinary world-renowned musicians: bassist MARK EGAN and percussionist DANNY GOTTLIEB.

GOT A DATE WITH FATE launches my professional singing career. Having begun singing as a boy soprano at the age of seven with "The Little Singers" of Norwalk, Connecticut boys choir, I sang and traveled with the choir internationally for several years. As adulthood blossomed, I put my singing on hold and worked several years as a police officer for the City of Norwalk, Connecticut and then as a United States Border Patrol Agent. After retiring from law enforcement, I devoted myself to building and maintaining a successful small business in Connecticut.

Knowing that music was always beckoning, I eventually explored and committed several years to intensive vocal study in New York City. There I met and trained with vocal teacher and coach, RICHARD LISSEMORE. After years of musical preparation, I am ready to step out of the studio and onto the stage.

I sincerely hope you enjoy this CD. and that you will enthusiastically share it with your friends and family. Thank You very much for your interest and support.

Appreciatively,

Scot Albertson

Great voice, great arrangements, mix could be better
I'd summarize this CD in 3 points:

1) Mr. Albertson could be a rising talent, perfectly suited to this music
2) His arrangements and backup are great, sensitive and clever
3) His mix needs work--fine as a demo, but he needs and deserves better to advance

Mr. Albertson has chosen his genre well. His clear, unaffacted tenor is perfect for interpreting standards like these. I detected almost no flaws in tone or interpretation. This music really does come naturally to him.

I was very surprised at the quality of his backup and arrangements. The hyperbole with which he credits his arranger & pianist Jon Werking is actually deserved. Very clever arrangements, many unexpected moments, sensitive work (I'm an arranger, so this matters to me). Similarly, the backup musicians are thoroughly professional. Mr. Albertson, you really lucked out for a first attempt.

The only quibble is with the mix. Please take this seriously: your CD is fine as a demo, but you deserve more professional work. Fortunately, the problems seem easy to fix. In a nutshell, the vocals are too distant and have too much reverb compared to the musicians, which are much more clean and prominent. This could be fixed simply by equalizing the reverb and bringing the vocals to the same level and fade as the instruments. Just remember this for your next CD. To advance, things like this will matter. Even if you are great, pros listening to your work will be distracted by a bad mix.

Good luck-you deserve it!
