30 Apr 04 ·: Nice one! Not one of his best albums, but the best cut by far. He had some really nice minor hits in his time. "Sitting In The Park" always makes me swoon, and his version of "Summertime" has to be heard to be believed!
30 Apr 04 ·: yeah, i totally agree, his version of summertime is amazing. from what i heard, that was actually the track that brought him into recording, as he won a talent show with it in the forties. i'm currently hunting down some of his more "critically acclaimed" work. this lp (new tricks) was my first exposure to him, and i liked the glimpse i got from that enough to start looking for mp3's of his other work. now, to get that precious vinyl....
