Critics' Reviews

amg review
Jack Jones Sings -- a wonderfully understated title befitting a wonderfully understated LP -- captures the crooner at his most effortlessly appealing. Buoyed byRalph Carmichael's feather-light string arrangements, Jones exhibits a confidence and depth that more conventionally dynamic vocalists can't match. His fluid yet sculpted approach communicates the maturity of his material without relying on cheap theatrics. Jones reveals new meaning and nuance in familiar songs like "Somewhere There's Someone" and "The Face I Love," while Doug Talbert's piano notes twinkle like stars, further underscoring the music's nocturnal atmosphere. This is adult music in the strictest sense, articulating feelings and emotions lost on the young. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi
