At least Rod Stewart is consistent. Long accused by critics of selling his considerable interpretative talents short and playing it safe for the trappings of fame, Stewart revisits the font of his latest career revival here. But while 2002'sIt Had To … see full wiki
I really enjoyed this CD. Rod Stewart covers 14 classic jazz and easy listening standards in the second of the Great American song book series. Rod's voice is so relaxing on this album. My favorite track is Rod's duet with Queen Latifah As Time Goes By. I think they do an excellent job covering this classic song by Frank Sinatra. Queen Latifah has such a smooth and pleasant voice. She really displays that on this track. I've never heard of the song Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered before, but I really liked it. Cher has still has that same low, smoky sexy voice of hers, and she sounds great with Rod on this duet.
Rod Stewart sings his rendition of the Gershwin classic Someone to Watch Over Me so Well. I really sensed a longing for love in his voice on this track. I'm in the Mood for Love is another highlight for me on this album. The sax playing on this track is so good. Rod creates such a romantic mood on these songs especially the song I Only Have Eyes For You. I think this song is very sweet. I also liked the song Don't Get Around Much Anymore too. The piano playing on this track is beautiful. I think Rod captures the sentiment of missing a loved one so well on this song. I enjoyed listening to this album very much. If you are a fan of classic jazz or easy listening music, you will love this CD.
