John Gary - Master of Expression
J. Coleman | Warner Robins, Georgia | 03/16/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"As an opera fan for many years, I have heard the greatest voices from the past 100 years, including John Gary. Although John is no Caruso, neither Caruso nor any of the opera Greats could claim greater voices than our own John Gary. I was most skeptical when a friend told me back in 1965 of a voice he had heard that had a 3-octive range. I quickly conceded that John Gary had an incredible range, with the lowest notes as pure and easy and the very highest. He makes it all seem so effortless. But even more, is the poetical expression and warmth that he captures in each song which can bring tears to your eyes. I was very saddened to learn that John Gary recently pass away. I keep checking the Amazon.com to see if they have release any of this earlier albums in CD. Although I have several of his albums, I no longer have the equipment to adequately play them. I would also be interested in his biography if one has beem written."

"John Gary sings Cole Porter has turned out to be one of my favorite albums. It has a style to it that makes it different from John's other records. Any Gary fan will be pleased to add this to the collection. Listen and enjoy!"

"I was at the recording session in New Orleans when John and Bill Keck worked on this album. It was specially designed to be "straight ahead' singing Cole Porter's lyrics with no gimmicks or enhancements. John said he sang the lyrics as he thought Cole Porter would have wanted. No frills...just great lyrics from a wonderful talent for putting words to music. It has more jazz quality because the musicians were local Basin Street trained and it was recorded at a studio that deals mostly with jazz artists. If the person who didn't like it would contact me, I will give him his money back!Contact me at leegary@webtv.net"
