Synopsis

Album Description
"?Expresses his connection with the swing, be-bop and romantic jazz roots of American music from the mid-part of the 20th century. Whether swinging, scatting or breathlessly embracing the deeper nuances of lush ballads, Andy?s fearless approach and connection to this music should make for an exciting show." -CABARET HOTLINE ONLINE "Sexy and soulful jazz singer Andy Suvalsky set the stage with four sold-out performances of My American Songbook, his unique presentation of standards." -HX MAGAZINE "Andy?s new show?samples unabashedly popular music from the ?70s to now, all re-created with his loving, soulful and very original touch." -NEXT MAGAZINE Vintage Pop?and the Jazz Sides starts off in the realm of classic pop, with song selections originally composed and performed by artists whose work was influenced by a love of jazz. On the second half, Andrew Suvalsky effortlessly moves into a more sophisticated realm as he interprets several jazz standards originally performed by greats like Ella Fitzgerald and Frank Sinatra. Suvalsky?s personal style, voice, song selections and choice of arrangements are a formidable package that reveals his ability to make the listener believe these classic songs are his own original repertoire!

Attention: Diction Disorder
John Buckingham | Worcester, MA USA | 12/16/2008
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Young, out gay singer Andrew Suvalsky's debut CD displays good arrangements and an endearing go-for-broke song selection that finds him careening from Peter Frampton to Cole Porter with stops for Roy Orbison in between (even though k.d. lang officially now owns "Crying", it was brave of Suvalsky to make a stab at it anyway). Where Suvalsky's strong points are his phrasing and modulation of his often sweet tenor voice, unfortunately he's undone by a speach impediment that finds him frequently mangling his "s" sounds. Case in sad point: the opening track comes off as "Do You Want to Danth"; even the Divine Miss M. would have to wince at that one. It sets up an auto-cringe factor for the rest of the album. If Suvalsky ever can overcome that diction problem, he'll join the front ranks of singers in the classic cabaret mold. Until then, VINTAGE POP AND THE JAZZ SIDES will have to serve as a fitfully disappointing introduction to a singer who wasn't quite ready to record his first CD."
