George Evans: Eyes for You Vocalist George Evans is getting the message. In a day and age where male balladeers come few and far between, Evans has been building up a body of vocal work relying on the tunes turned out by some of the top contributors to the Great American Songbook: Jimmy Van Heusen, Sammy Cahn, Cole Porter and Ray Noble. As usual, joining him are some of the best Canadian rhythm artists on today's scene.. This time its Reg Schwager on guitar, Mark Eisenman, piano, Neil Swainson, bass, Jerry Fuller on drumsand Denny Christianson on trumpet. The result is some of the better small group playing on disk. Even though this is familiar material, Evans and his friends add a brightness to these beloved songs that demonstrate their timeliness. Highly recommended.
