Jack Jones 9/1991

Review

If you are familiar with the LOVE BOAT theme, you know the bell-toned baritone of Jack Jones. His clarity in rendering a ballad is well applied in this album of Gershwin standards. These 1992 recordings sound remarkably fresh, even though the tunes are 60-70 years old and have been recorded countless times. Jones simultaneously presents them as cabaret performances and as art songs. His interpretation of "But Not for Me" is exquisitely sensitive, showing touching restraint. The jazz band arrangement of "Nice Work if You Can Get It" finds Jones in a playful mood, substituting "woik" for "work" in the second verse. An undisputed classic of American song, "Someone to Watch Over Me" boasts a marvelously soft vocal interpretation and saxophonist Matt Gatingub's heartfelt interjections. These are great songs performed with thoughtful skill.
