CD REVIEW: Arnold J. Olenick - Songs from my Trunk
By Ben Ohmart - 05/21/2007 - 10:34 AM EDT
Artist: Arnold Olenick Genre: Jazz CD Review: If John Morris didn't have the current Gene Wilder mysteries sewn up, I'd suggest Arnold send this cd to Gene and have a few new standards put into the series. This is sweet vocal jazz that's half old movie songs, half pre-Phantom Broadway. What a nice trunk this guy must have. I hope some of these are getting into club acts and revues. 'No Way to be Blue Around You' and 'Who Can Tell?' would be a tragic waste to remain in the drawer. 16 songs, not quite 50 minutes, you'll get a kick out of these romantic, sometimes funny tuneful tunes because the singers are 1st class with clean, simple production. A delight.
