CD Review

Michael Bublé is often referred to as the ‘new face of jazz’; the thirty-eight year old jazz/pop sensation has won three Grammy awards as well as multiple Juno awards. Bublé has had ten albums, which have all been great hits. Bublé’s 2009 album Crazy Love debuted at number one after only three days of sales. Bublé is a Canadian who was born September 9th, 1975. Bublé claims, in an Oprah interview, he slept with a bible and prayed every night to become a singer. He grew up listening to his grandfather’s jazz music, and credits him for his love of jazz music.

Bublé did many shows and gigs to get where he stands today. He is best known for his Christmas cd, Christmas. His smooth, cool voice and jazzy feel created an incredible and memorable Christmas album that will never die out. Bublé’s album ‘It’s Time’ was released February 8th, 2005 and was a massive hit, winning 3 echo awards for best album, best pop album and best jazz production.

Bublé’s album, It’s Time, consists of thirteen songs; featuring top hit songs Home, Feeling Good and Quando Quando Quando. The album consists of two featured artists, Nelly Furtado and Chris Botti. Chris Botti is a jazz sensation; he’s an excellent trumpeter and composer. Botti is featured on Bublé’s ‘A Song For You’, the eleventh track on the album. The track begins with an excellent, smooth solo by Botti. It creates a smooth, soft feel and slow tempo for the song.

I believe the best song on the entire album is the opening track, ‘Feeling Good’. Anthony Newley and Leslie Bricusse originally wrote this song for a musical in the 60s. It has been covered by a variety of artists with all different styles. Michael Bublé’s version has a very quick tempo with a big band sort of feel to it. All the instruments go together with perfect harmony and pitch. There doesn’t seem to be too much improvisation, which I like because it sounds a lot more pleasant and arranged.

I enjoy the song...
