The real deal
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Civisca is the best young male vocalist I've heard in a long time. He's a pop singer, not a jazz singer, but like the great pop singers - Sinatra, Bennett, etc., his singing is informed by jazz - not by R&B or rock. It's not (yet) fair to compare him to singers like those two, of course, but this album is a blast to listen to. He has a great set of pipes, and he knows how to use them. For example, on "Wonder Why," my favorite track, he sings pretty much the whole song just ahead of the beat, then lets the band catch up with him. Since every song is a standard, there are no duds, and you can listen to it through without skipping certain songs.It's refreshing to find a singer who serves the songs rather than by letting the songs serve his voice. If you've been looking for a young singer to pick up the Sinatra/Bennett/Torme mantle, this fellow may do just fine."
Great live performance

"I was one of a group of people that went to Blues Alley one night (Washington,DC)and I got to hear Civisca for the first time. I bought his Live CD and have not stopped listening to it. As a musician, I must say, this cat can swing! The arrangements to these old songs are fresh and exciting to listen to, as well as some very hip changes. It interests me how even though the band is playing in a jazz content, Civisca still controls the song by singing it fairly straight. It works! That evening of the show, in the midst of cigarette smoke and very dry air, Civisca put his heart into a few ballads that made me appreciate this young new singer. I look forward to seeing how this guy grows in the next several years."
