What can be said about Alejandro that has not already been said?. I waited impatiently for another superb album to be released and I was not disappointed. It is always a pleasure to listen to the soulful melodies and the resonance of his marvelous voice. This is a great buy. Long may he sing and record so that we all can enjoy his talent.
Former People: The Final Days of the Russian Arist&hellip by Douglas Smith
This is a very good book. The suffering of the Russian people before and after the Russian Revolution in 1917 is brought to life very vividly. The horrors of the revolution, the civil war and the years of Stalin are examined through the events that occurred to two very prominent aristocratic families. There are many characters and some with similar sounding names and everyone seems to have a nickname and that being said, it can be difficult to follow. However it is well worth the read as these were real people who lived lives that most of us could only imagine in our worst nightmares but kept their wits about them and survived as best they could.

I do not know how I had missed seeing/discovering this album which is several years old. I have many of his prior albums and love them all. He has not disappointed with this album of songs. The tribute to Maria Callas that he does with Vittorio is superb and brings tears to my eyes- not just for the quality of their voices, but also the masterful arrangement of the music and for the memory of that wonderful woman with the great voice. I can't get enough of this album. You will not be disappointed.
