Jonathan Poretz - A Lot Of Livin To Do (CD)
Release Date: 01/16/07
Close listening reveals a thin layer of Mark Murphy grit beneath his polished patina and, particularly on 'Come Rain of Come Shine,' a hint of Tony Bennett. In what amounts to a solid assortment of safely appealing standards, highlighted by a pleasurable blending of Frank Loesser's 'My Time of Day' and 'I've Never Been in Love Before,' from 'Guys and Dolls,' Poretz proves himself a fine belter and ballader.
