Review of Alone Together for Songbirds

Mention of British singer Gary Williams was made on the list a few months back. His new CD, "Alone Together," is now out and I just received my copy from amazon.uk. On this disc, Gary sings with the John Wilson Orchestra, with orchestrations by Andrew Cottee. This is a beautiful recording, lush and warm and sensuous. Gary has a gorgeous, unaffected, natural voice and delivers the lyrics of each song with great sensitivity and depth. Although the selection of tunes may be a bit pedestrian for the informed Songbirders among us, I think Gary breaths new life into some of these old standards. His renditions of "I Get Along Without You Very Well" and "Why Shouldn't I?" are knockouts. Highly recommended.
