Michael Feinstein: Michael Feinstein with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra (2002)
When a top but often undersung crooner pairs up with a similarly situated symphony, the results can often be much more than fantastic. The mellow moods of tunes like "Guess I’ll Hang My Tears Out to Dry" and "On a Clear Day" may not allow the power of either to be fully recognized, but the emotional coloring is rich and beautiful. And when Feinstein and Conductor Alan Broadbent give the signal to add some sturm und drang to "Stormy Weather" or to bring the crowd to their feet with a final belt of "I Won’t Send Roses," their reserved power is made manifest in glorious displays.
