Notes and Editorial Reviews

With the exception of SOMETHING WONDERFUL (which is my favorite song in Musical Theatre), I’ve sung every song on this CD either in a show or in concert. They were sung from the heart for the audience, to either make them laugh, or sometimes cry. It was a true pleasure to sing ALL THROUGH THE NIGHT with one of my best friends, Rebecca Luker, ALMOST LIKE BEING IN LOVE with Janis Kelly, and thank you Brian Cimmet for your gorgeous playing on I WISH I COULD FORGET YOU. And lastly to John for making this all happen. Now I hope every single song is part of a magical night out on the town or in the theatre, spent either with a loved one or dear friends; a night away from jobs, bills, homework, life. No matter where you are or what you are doing Read more as you listen, I hope the music takes you to a special place, ALL THROUGH THE NIGHT.

-- George Dvorsky, New York 2011

 Caveat emptor/My regrets July 25, 2012 By Robert S. (New Rochelle, NY) See All My Reviews "It's rare when I will purchase a CD by an unfamiliar (to me) artist. But I couldn't resist the very appealing choice of selections on George Dvorsky's new album, "All Through The Night". Even if I wasn't crazy about the voice, this group would surely provide good background music at work, I thought... Or in my car.

Was I ever wrong! Mr. Dvorsky is not up to the task at all. His light tenor is often troubled by pitch problems that are apparent from the get-go, and sustained notes deteriorate with the appearance of his fluttery vibrato. His version of "Soliloquy" from Carousel, in particular, is a very unfortunate victim of butchery.

The Robert Russell Bennett orchestrations hold up well, but he is sadly outsung by Rebecca Luker in "All Through The Night", and the "girls" in "All I Care About Is Love" shrilly drown him out. There is not one selection that I can rate better than satisfactory, and most, not even that. All in all, this is an unfortunate disc that I wouldn't play again. I was glad to find it defective--- it's going back.

For me, there is little to like in this new disc. I wouldn't buy it again, given the opportunity.
