Product Description

Product Description

2003 album from the Canadian crooner. When producer David Foster (Celine Dion, Barbra Streisand, Whitney Houston) discovered him, he quickly became a 25-year-old singing sensation whose smooth voice and heartthrob style harks back to the swingin' greats of earlier decades, to the likes of Frank & Dean, but also speaks to a new generation's sensibility.

Amazon.ca

Pop's rush to raid the cradle continues with this promising debut by 25-year-old Canadian singer Michael Bublé. And while the young vocal star's good looks are smart enough for a boy band, his muse seems to have sprung from a more sassy and compelling musical era. Mentored by Paul Anka (whose '50s hit "Put Your Head on My Shoulder" is covered in dreamy, cabaret fashion here), Bublé sings in the orbits of Darin and Sinatra, covering swing epoch gems ("Come Fly with Me," "The Way You Look Tonight," "That's All") and rock era standards (Van Morrison's "Moondance," "How Can You Mend a Broken Heart" by the Brothers Gibb, Queen's "Crazy Little Ting Called Love") with equal aplomb. David Foster's production is typically slick and played to the back row of the bleachers, but it's informed by smart contexts provided by such arrangers as Johnny Mandel, Randy Waldman, and Mike Melvoin. If the choices of material are sometimes staid and predictable, they also give the singer a crucial framework for building toward something more challenging; his is a bright future. --Jerry McCulley

I was tuned in to Jazz station 94.7 The Wave, and "Moondance" was playing. I said to myself, "Oh my what a voice! It couldn't be Harry Connick, Jr, couldn't be Michael Feinstein, couldn't be Bobby Caldwell, definitely not Frank Sinatra or Mel Torme! Who is this singer?" After the song, the DJ said ... "You just heard "Moondance" by Michael Buble.... pronounced as (Boo-blay) from the CD Michael Buble......" I never heard of him! I ordered the CD from Amazon.com and found myself not only listening to it but singing along as well.

Great selection of songs from the initial song "Fever", followed by one of my favorites, "Moondance" (makes you sing along & snap your fingers). Listening to the slower ones, "Kissing A Fool," "The Way You Look Tonight," "You'll Never Find Another Love Like Mine," and ""Put Your Head On My Shoulder" makes you want to fall in love again! His renditions of "Come Fly With Me," "For Once In My Life" and "Summer Wind" are almost like the legendary Francis Albert Sinatra's style. "For Once In My Life" and "How Can You Mend A Broken Heart" are equally mesmerizing. If you're in the mood for dancing and swinging and want to be cool and hip, then dance to the tune of "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" (I like the refrain ... there goes my baby.....she knows how to rock & roll, she drives me crazy). Likewise with "Sway" where you can dance and "Cha-Cha-Cha."

"That's All," the last tract, is one of my all-time favorites. Hopefully, it's not "that's all" for this young and promising new singer. He deserves a pat on the back. Congratulations Mr. Michael Buble!

This CD is superb and a nice addition to anyone's collection.

Michael Buble's voice and David Foster's inspired production. This CD is absolutely exquisite. I am a huge Sinatra fan and Michael does not foolishly try to imitate him. He infuses every song with his own phrasing and sensuous voice. David Foster is a master at picking the perfect orchestrations.
I never cared for "You're Gonna Miss My Loving" but after 3 good listens, my eyes teared up and the lyrics took on an entire new meaning - that of sorrow. Lou Rawl's version is more 'I told you so' bold. Michael sings it with a broken heart.
My favorites? Moondance of course and Kissing a Fool were unexpected surprises. I skip the Bee Gees song. It does nothing for me - but then neither did the original.
**** See below for an Update on Feb 10, 2004 ****
I saw Michael live at the Hollywood Bowl on a perfect LA summer evening. Outside, tank top, shorts, flip-flips, Pinot Grigio, a full moon, and then fireworks. He didn't get a long enough set but I can't wait to see him again. His voice sounds even fuller and richer live. No, it wasn't the wine!
Everyone who has heard this CD on my BOSE enjoys it. Most men love "Fever"...that cracks me up!
Michael Buble' belongs in your collection along with Sting, Sinatra, Linda Ronstandt, Brian Setzer, Bono/U2, Diana Krall, and kd Lang singing Skylark (check it out, gorgeous).
I am looking forward to Michael and David collaborating again. This could be the next Sinatra/Riddle/May team.
Enjoy!
Marilyn

I heard Michael Buble sing "Kissing a Fool" on the Sharon Osborne show (I was flipping and his voice grabbed my attention.) I was so impressed, I had to get it. I am glad to say that "Kissing a Fool" is not my favorite song, while it's great I like "Fever" and "How can you Mend a Broken Heart" the best. "Sway" and "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" want to make you get up and dance! And "Fever" is fantastic! On the slower note, "That's All" and "How Can You Mend a Broken Heart" make me swoon! His voice is amazing and I love the songs. I know I am going against the grain when I say that I am not a big fan of Frank Sinatra, and I don't particularly care for the covers "Summer Wind" and "Come Fly Away with Me". A friend who is a Sinatra fan says he prefers Sinatra. Even with those two songs not being my favorites the rest of the CD is so fantastic, I just overlook it. I would highly reccomend this CD. (Which is exactly what I'm doing!) Go and get it. You will not be dissapointed!

In this age of popstars, idols and celebrity worship, the art of singing usually seems to have been forgotten. Marketing, personality, and looks are all nowadays quite openly looked upon as the most important aspects of an artist courting popularity. Michael Buble has all these (looks, big label, big managers, big producers, etc.), but the amazing thing is... his voice and delivery are pure class. This kind of authoritative but unhistrionic, stand-and-deliver, conversationally-toned singing hasn't been in fashion, or even heard, for years.
There are beautiful echoes of Jack Jones, Frank Sinatra and Mel Torme all the way through this album. Does anyone remember Jack Jones? Most of the songs, singing, and production from this collection would sound quite at home on some of Jack Jones' terribly unfashionable 70s albums (which, by the way are not available on CD - now may be the time to release them, someone!).
The song selection here is sometimes overly conservative and bland, or sometimes even kitsch ("Crazy Little Thing"), but the voice usually compensates for any mediocrities in songwriting and orchestration. George Michael and Barry Gibb are good songwriter choices - maybe Michael Buble should do more of these kinds of songs in this kind of setting? Some of the swing stuff may be overly blatantly Sinatra-influenced, but it's impeccably done.
I'm very much looking forward to hearing more from this guy...
