CD Reviews

Never stop smiling
Norman Isaacson | Warwick, NY USA | 05/09/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Jack Sheldon has the unique capacity to sing with a sense of humor. I have watched and listened to him throughout the years and never found him to be at a loss for humor. Years ago on the Merv Griffin show where he played trumpet and occasionally sang, he displayed a style that had everyone smiling. There are some people who are born frowners while others are born laughers. Sheldon is a laugher and it comes through in his singing and in his playing. This CD is a clear demonstration of his ability to be joyful in words and in notes. I have many other CD's and tapes of his and on all of them, he never loses that fabulous quality of the smile. Anyone who likes to hear good jazz trumpet and gain the added benefit of a great sense of humor should get this CD."
