More Like the Male Version Of Annie

Let me be frank and honest with you people. What you have here are a thousand or more posters within a week, praising this cd as if it's the second coming. When I KNOW there's a Clay Aiken's fan site that is encouraging fans to post as many good reviews as possible to make this cd seem better than it actually is. So let me just say, what this cd is really about. It's another example of a lounge singer getting a deal because of an over-rated addictive music show. I listened to this cd five times and each time I became depressed. Depressed at the fact that there is an artist out there somewhere being denied the chance to shine, because he's not AI material. While Clay has a good voice, the songs on this album are bland, boring, cheesy, corny and simple. The productions sounds JUST like Kelly Clarkston's album. I mean we have heard this music before because Clay offers nothing new or exciting to the music scope. This is what I call `elevator music' at its worst. You can either believe the hype or take it from me...if you like your music that's challenging, take risks, different, good, experimental and pushes you mentally, then DO NOT buy this album.

This is great mood music. This should replace one or more of your "easy listening" cds.

Amazingly authentic

John Jorgenson is not just a jack of all trades- he's a master, too. I knew him first as a member of the "Hellcasters" C&W instrumental trio, but he's every bit as good- or better- playing the jazz manouche music of Django Reinhardt. Turns out (according to an interview in Guitar Player) that his fascination with Django's music goes back decades, long before his involvment with the Hellcasters or Elton John or any of the other pop names he's played with.

And this love of Django and the Gypsies has translated into a feel for the music that few non-Gypsies can approach. Combine that with Jorgenson's astounding technique, and you think you're listening to one of the great old timers. If that wasn't enough, he's added a number of new tunes to the repetoir that capture the essence of the manouche style.

A must have for fans of the genre, and for Jorgenson fans, too.
