Superb jazz debut from Curtis Stigers
An 11-year old music fan | Carrickfergus, County Antrim, Northern Ireland | 10/18/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"As a keen Curtis Stigers fan for many years, I was at first surprised that he would record a jazz album at all. With an initially meteoric pop career, it seemed to me that Mr. Stigers' market still lay in soulful pop. I would have thought that the commercial limitations of jazz might have further restricted his profile to the wide audience he truly deserves. However, what an absolute scorcher of an album 'Baby Plays Around'actually is.
His superb vocals provide a really fresh feel to a beautifully crafted selection of top notch straightahead jazz."
"just the way you like em'...Curtis Stigers"

"Curtis Stigers (singer/songwriter) has gathered a talented jazz-musician backup...featuring Randy Brecker (trumpet), Christian Minh Doky (bass), Larry Goldings (piano), Dennis Irwin (bass), Adam Nussbaum (drums) and Bill Stewart (drums)...makes his latest release with Concord, destined to be a hit with the jazz enthusiasts. Of course there are some stand outs ~ "BUT NOT FOR ME", "LET'S GET LOST" and "ALL THE THINGS YOU ARE", these standards are timeless, as Stigers gives his heartfelt renditions...but the highlights are two new songs "LOVE" and "BABY PLAYS AROUND", blends soul and jazz into one lingering melody, uniting passion into every lyric. Total Time: 55:59 on 13 Tracks ~ Concord Jazz CCD-4944-2 ~ (2001)"
The Best Side of Curtis Stigers

"I've always said that Curtis needs to do more jazz, more jazz, and more jazz. "Baby Plays Around" quickly became one of my all-time FAVORITE albums before I even finished my first time listening to it! His amazing voice rivals, in my humble opinion, even that of the late Frank Sinatra. In addition to his masterful voice, the group accompanying Curtis displays their chops as well, and are a brilliant and soothing support for Stigers. You won't lose with this CD!"
