Product Description

Product Description

The extraordinary voice of 20-year-old Josh Groban is an inspiring force. Not only did it move Grammy-Award winning producer David Foster to bring Josh into the studio to produce his magnificent debut album, it also moved Ally McBeal creator/executive producer David E. Kelley to bring Josh on the show's season finale to perform "You're Still You." After an overwhelming reaction from viewers, Josh was brought back to sing "To Where You Are" on this year's Christmas episode.

Amazon.ca

There are worse things in life for than making your acting debut on the much ballyhooed season finale of Ally McBeal, though teen operatic baritone Josh Groban doesn't seem destined to encounter them anytime soon. As the awkward high school student-client who asks the typically romance-jinxed Ally to his senior prom, Groban performed this debut album's "You're Still You" (adapted from film-composing legend Ennio Morricone's Academy Award-nominated score for Malèna, with lyrics by Linda Thompson) as a heart-tugging, literal showstopper. The young star was just 17 when veteran producer-writer David Foster tapped him to fill in for Andrea Bocelli at rehearsals for the 1999 Grammys, where Groban found himself suddenly dueting with Celine Dion.

If this collection tends to hew sometimes uncomfortably close to Foster's own MOR sonic instincts, the material offers enough challenges to display Groban's talent and the potential of his warm, mature voice: a lyrical take on another Morricone classic, "Cinema Paradiso"; melancholy readings of Don McLean's "Starry, Starry Night" and Albert Hammond's "Alejate"; masterfully dramatic takes of the Neapolitan "Alla Luca Del Sole" and "Canto Alla Vita," the latter featuring the Corrs. Many of Groban's performances here, including a neo prog-rock-opera take on Bach's "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring" (with Lili Haydn), seem both bigger and bolder than their precious musical frameworks, a telling hint that Grand Opera can't be far from his grasp. As said earlier, there are worse things in life.--Jerry McCulley

If you are like me and are a bit hesitant in purchasing this CD due to the number of non-English tracks, BUY IT. The quality of his voice is so soothing that if you can understand the words or not doesn't matter. My favorite track is "Alejate" and even though I have no clue what the actual words are I could listen to it over and over. This is definitely my DAILY stress-buster - at work when things get to be too much, I put in the CD and let his beautiful voice soothe over the rough spots. Definitely a CD not to miss - I thank my local "lite" radio station for recommending it!

Since I already own Josh's debut CD, his DVD and VHS, I bought the Japanese export just for the bonus trak, Mia Per Sempre. Josh's voice mesmorizes, and Mia per Sempre is another proof of this phenomena. I'm only a student of the Italian language, but one needs not speak Italian to apprecite, and fall in love with the rich baritone voice of this incredibly talented, gorgeous man.

This book is great if you want to learn the words to some really beautiful songs or learn to play them on piano. I bought it to learn the words to the Italian and Spanish songs. It's very useful in that way. You can read along and listen and learn how to pronounce the words and after a few listens you'll be singing along with Josh. His self titled cd is a must have. His voice is heavenly and he is not an opera singer, he's a classically trained vocalist that could sing anything he wants.

He was the pop and classical singer Josh Groban made his debut in the seventh grade, but then put music aside for a few years until he enrolled at the Interlochen Arts Program. In late 1998, he hooked up with a friend of his vocal coach, producer/writer/arranger David Foster. Groban worked for Foster as a rehearsal singer on a series of high-profile events, including the inauguration of Grey Davis as governor of California and the Grammy Awards (at which he rehearsed Foster's "The Prayer" with Celine Dion in place of Andrea Bocelli). He was accepted into the theater department of Carnegie Mellon College, but put his education on hold when he was offered a recording contract at Warner Bros. Records through Foster's 143 imprint. He made his recording debut singing "For Always" with Lara Fabian on the soundtrack to A.I.: Artificial Intelligence, and appeared in the 2001 season finale of the television series Ally McBeal. His debut album, Josh Groban, was released in November 2001. Over the next year, Groban became a star. His album went double-platinum, and had his own PBS special in November 2002. A month later, he performed "To Where You Are" and "The Prayer" at the Nobel Peace Prize Concert in Oslo, Norway, and joined The Corrs, Ronan Keating, Sting, Lionel Richie and others for a holiday performance at the Vatican in Rome. In November 2003, Groban issued his second album, Closer. Two months later, he earned his first ever number one when Closer skyrocketed from number 11 to number one on the Billboard album charts.Read more ›

For those of you ready to pitch out the antics of dome of the manufactured, look alike, sound alike, choreographed dance boy/girl bands, this may be your lucky day. I may be getting older, but I was wondering where all the real singers had gone. Was there any talent left on the planet who studied their craft and could hold an audience without a show of lights, mirrors and magic, but with the simple magic of their voice and vocal ability? Well, here's the answer -- an everlasting "YES!" in the form of a brilliant baritone, Josh Groban. Who would have thought there would be a twenty-year-old in this day and age whose voice and talent so far transcends those of the boy bands and other "pop stars," that you vow to banish them from your musical diet forever after hearing Groban. This guy has "it." And the "it" is pure brillance. That David Foster produced Groban's CD was a surprise for me, but it was a very pleasant surprise indeed. Some semi-classical tunes, some easy listening pop, but all totally enchanting. I can't decide if I love his Italian more than his English, but Groban's voice is mesmerizing in any language. His range is exciting on several of the cuts, such as "Gira Con Me" and "Cinema Paridiso(Se). "To Where You Are" is bittersweetly moving. "Home to Stay" is particularly gentle and touching with the movement into "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring." Then there is the last cut, "The Prayer" a duet with Charlotte Church. (Wish it could have been me!) Other cuts with The Corrs and Lili Haydn make this CD an even spicier treat. I pray Josh continues his training and never compromises his talent and musical future. (In other words, Josh, please don't let the "suits" in the music biz mess with you!) He may still consider himself a work in progress, but on this CD, Josh Groban is already a masterpiece.

I had only first heard about Josh Groban last Thursday 10/02/03. A friend played "The Prayer" and when I heard the male voice, I had to know who it was. He has a deep, rich voice that'll give you the chills because it's so beautiful. Needless to say, I now have the cd and have not stopeed listening to it, yet. I highly recommend this cd for anyone, of any age. Another favorite song is "Gira con Me". I could listen to this cd forever.
