I have known of Tommy Tune for 40 years. Mostly as a dancer-choreographer who can sing. I had no idea that he had made a solo CD. Certainly, the title choices are not for everyone. You will like it either because you like soft, romantic, old fashioned tunes or because you like Tommy's velvety soft voice, that takes you into a dream state. I saw "My One and Only" with Tommy and Twiggy; but that was not as representative of his abilities as this CD is. When I listen to "Slow dancin'" i get the feeling he is singing "just for me." I am able to understand each word...not always possible these days when the orchestra drowns the artist. Melodic, romantic, dreamy, a joy to listen to, over and over again!
Tommy has sure got a great style of song

"I feel so privilaged, I attended the same college as Tommy. I was a few years ahead of him and never got to meet him, but I feel like I know him through his music.On this particular cd you will be greatly entertained by Tommys' voice. He has a very relaxed style of singing. It appears there is always a big smile on his face as he sings these beautiful songs. He will win you heart if you let him.The only downside to this cd is that some of the songs performed here, were not my favotires. There could have been a few better selections of song.Recommendation: I think you should buy this cd and experience "The Sound Of Tommy Tune""
Soft and Elegant

"Tommy Tune is no big belter, but he has a gentle, easy way with a song. Anyone who has seen him perform live knows he is a charming, graceful, delightful performer. This CD is just what the title promises: old-fashioned dance tunes at a relaxed tempo. Like a couple other half-way decent dancers who did a fair amount of singing, Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly, Tune's voice falls lightly on the ear, and his inherent rhythmic style and musicality are impeccable. This is a great CD for quiet evenings of reminiscence and romance."
