"As an admirer of great jazz and after reading online about this album and its performer, I had to add it to my music collection. I'm glad I did.Steve Blackwood, known for his role on "Days of Our Lives", is a jazz singer of the highest order. With an acrobatic tenor voice, he scats with ease, croons with care, and swings with style. Backed by a jazz combo (pointing out excellent work by pianist Jane Getz and trumpeter Jeff Kaye), the arrangements are simple, yet unique to the song interpretations.My personal favorites include "Black Coffee" which gets very soulful and moody, "Stompin' At the Savoy" which makes you want to swing dance, a slightly different arrangement of Peggy Lee's "Fever" that at the same time pays homage to that great lady and showcases a more sassy side to Mr. Blackwood, "Boulevard of Broken Dreams" gets low down and "Just In Time" which runs vibrantly rampant.This album has originality, pure talent from its singer and his musicians, and you can tell that Mr. Blackwood has a great respect for this style of music and for the singers who paved the way."
