Matt Monro, Singer Extraordinaire

"This is but one of many Matt Monro CD's that I have purchased. In my opinion, he is the most talented pop singer of all time. Sadly, he passed away well before his time. Fortunately, we can continue to enjoy his music. Matt's smooth style, emotion and clarity set him apart from all the great ones, even the Chairman of the Board, the Rat Pack, Damone etc. His choice of music was timely and appreciated by his many fans. My favorites are Walk Away, Friendly Persuasion and Love is a Many Splendored Thing. But I really loved this CD. If you are not familiar with Matt's work, do yourself a favor and buy this CD. I promise you that you will soon start to buy all of his albums. I have been a fan for over 30 years and I have most of his music. Believe me, this will be the best money you ever spent on a CD."
Monro in solid outing

"Matt Monro--the Brit's answer to Frank Sinatra--tries to emulate the Chairman of the Board with some bouncy big band arrangements, such as "georgia on my mind" complete with blaring brass--but manages to come up short. But don't despair. Monro's magic is how he caresses the ballad and here there are plenty in which he shines: Softly As I Leave You, Born Free, I Will Wait For You, Alfie. We finally get to hear the words to Francis Lai's classic "A Man and A Woman," and after hearing them it's no wonder it was the instrumental that drew raves."
