Notes and Editorial Reviews

It is not without interest that Stanley Wilson sounds to me like the kind of singer associated with classic musical shows. A sort of latter day Fred Astaire! All the famous composers liked Fred’s singing, because he sang all their songs in the way they intended.

Another item of interest is that Stanley’s clear diction makes it possible to appreciate what a brilliant songwriter Cole Porter was. The arrangements by Ben Cook are neat and they are well played throughout by his ensemble, with Dave Whitney doing quite a nice ‘Bix’ impression on Let’s Misbehave.
