thanks, Nina

After reading Nina's description over at Ocean, I bought Peter Cincotti's On the Moon today at Border's, and we listened to it on the way home.

Outstanding, if you like this sort of thing -- jazz piano and solo male vocals -- and I do, very much. Yes, he reminds me of Harry Connick, jr, but Cincotti's arrangements are a lot more interesting than Connick's. I also like that his voice isn't perfect, there are some thin spots, but what he does with it -- oh!

I agree with Nina, "Some Kind of Wonderful" is amazing.

So now you should pick up his first CD -- "Peter Cincotti." It doesn't have anything that's as sublime as "Some Kind of Wonderful," but it is quite good.

I replied with a snarky post, erased it, wrote another snarky post, erased that and right at the moment I'm on my fifth iteration of the intentionaly snarky post.

Sadly my mother often told me that if you can't say something nice, don't say nothing.

T, I'm sure your mom didn't speak in double negatives!

Now I'm intrigued. Snark? Why? You think Cincotti's a lounge lizard? What? What?

Bad elevator music.


And my mother often spoke in double negatives - but she got her point across very well.
