George Evans: Mood Swing

George Evans: Mood Swing George Evans suffered from that rare disease where one leaves Canada from the Big Apple for calmer, relaxed vantage points to work out his singing career. This is exactly what George Evans did, hurling aside living and working in the glamour capital of the world to work in a lesser rated market of stage and cabaret. Whether it be a purring/swinging rendition of "I See Your Face Before Me" with Greg Amirault and Art Roberts carrying important harmonic lyrical loads, or some other romantic ballad, the transition is a successful one. The Don Fagerquist - artistry like of Kevin Jean trumpet takes the lead on an exciting heavily vibtratoed "Devil May Care". Evans combines coziness with versatility with a sweet, tender "Someone to Light up My Life"...and does it without to straining to get the last few measures out. That accomplishment alone is worth some sort an award. Even the oft sung semi classical piece of fluff, "Indian Summer" gets a new coat of vocal paint and comes out with a glistening new burnish.

There are fine studio musicians present to those already mentioned. We're also told that a new third offering may be in the cutting machine. Hardly can wait to hear what this one has to offer. Learn more about George Evans and musical gang at George's web site at www.george-evans.net , where more Evans projects are described. Recommended.
