Pesci... Still Singing (CD)

Legendary actor Joe Pesci hasn’t released an album since 1998’s comedic collection Vincent LaGuardia Gambini Sings Just for You. (Yes, it was based on My Cousin Vinny.) So, for many listeners, it may come as a shock that Pesci’s both well-versed in jazz and an incredibly talented, natural performer. Often when a celebrity crosses over into another art form, fans think it’s all a bit silly but take it from us, this is not the case for Pesci, who, as it turns out, was a lounge singer before his film career kicked off. On ...Still Singing, Pesci seems very at home in the atmospheric, sophisticated world of jazz and lounge, his voice floating effortlessly above top-notch orchestrations. Maroon 5’s Adam Levine, trumpeter Arturo Sandoval, and the inimitable Jimmy Scott all contributed to Pesci’s latest. Smart, urbane, and very cool, fans of classic jazz will find much to celebrate here.

At Last (CD)

Actor Luke Evans makes his studio album debut with At Last, a quirky collection of pop and rock covers altered in arrangement to show off his West End musical talents. Evans' voice is strong with just a little grit on these sweeping, disarmingly sincere ballads – surprisingly even Pat Benatar's “Love Is A Battlefield” becomes a sweeping ballad, lending a sadder tone to its melodramatic lyrics.
