One of Jazz Music's Greatest Stars -- Fred Astaire!

(5 out of 5 stars)
""Fred Astaire Sings" is one of the better jazz albums out there that feature the underrated vocal talents of Fred Astaire, the world's greatest song-and-dance man. Of course, Mr. A's primarily known for the dancing, but don't forget, our boy sang, too! And he was very, very good. It's true all the great songwriters of yesteryear (Berlin, Gershwin, and Porter to name a few) wanted to write songs especially for him. "Fred Astaire Sings" features some of those songs ("Change Partners" from Carefree, "Isn't This a Lovely Day" from Top Hat, and "One for My Baby" from The Sky's the Limit).This album was made during the later years of Mr. A's career, and it's remarkable to point out how well Astaire's singing developed and improved as the years progressed. A couple of treats on this CD: Mercer's "Something's Gotta Give" from Daddy Long Legs and "The Afterbeat" written by Mr. A himself."
