Review Text There are few vocalists who can match Alan Farrington's lazy, laid-back, sensuous style -- and style is the word -- as he fronts a finely suited quartet comprised of lesser known Italian musicians. The selection of popular tunes is mostly exemplary, ranging from Ellington (a killing rendition of "Mood Indigo") to Monk ("'Round Midnight"), to Irving Berlin ("Top Hat, White Tie and Tails") to John Lennon and Paul McCartney ("Fixing a Hole"). Farrington's rasping bark is reminiscent of the classic vocals by Blood, Sweat & Tears, particularly when he interprets the rock group's version of "God Bless the Child." Sometimes Farrington sounds a bit too polished, but when he rolls, he rolls. A sax, an additional voice, vibes, and guitar occasionally supplement the Quartet, but it is Farrington who makes or breaks each piece with his gruff, yet somehow enchanting, swan calls. Honorable mention goes to pianist Roberto Soggetti for a strong supportive roll, and some tasty solos. ~ Steven Loewy
