*********************************************************
Jimmy Spencer is truly a balladeer extraordinaire and “WARM” certainly proves it. He caresses each song with a soft gentle warm style that sets the mood for a quiet romantic experience. The ballads tell of new love, old love and everything in between.

Spencer bares his heart and soul to tell a love story for his listeners. One I’m sure most will relate to. His smooth and sensually deep voice passionately proves he still has what it takes to set the mood and capture his audience.

Rejoice in the joy... feel the heartache... revel in each moment...feel WARM!

Yes, Jimmy Spencer is back...so sit back, relax, enjoy a glass of wine and take that trip to paradise!

Today the singer who reaches his audience through the warmth and love he feels for his songs and the people he sings to is rare indeed. JIMMY SPENCER is that kind of singer.

It's Jimmy's love of people that makes it possible for him to touch them as he does with his music. He cares about the people who listen to him sing. It shows in every song.

Tolucan Times...6/6/07...by Mary Mallory

With a rich baritone voice that's a cross between Nat King Cole and Barry White, Jimmy Spencer offers smooth, lush ballads and snazzy jazz in his concert promoting his new CD, "warm..." then...now...always. Singing both traditional, romantic standards as well as up-tempo, toe-tapping numbers, Spencer radiates a true love of performing before audiences.

He demonstrates a wide range of vocal talents including scat singing, crooning, and stylish, elegant phrasing. Spencer sensually caresses the notes like a gentle, romantic lover.

In particular, he offers delicate line readings to romantic tunes like "Blue Gardenia" and "Always," emphasizing the wistful, bittersweet nature of relationships and love.

He also brings a zesty nuance to the fun "All of Me," as well as a bouncy, snappy up-tempo to "Orange Colored Sky."

Pianist Karen Hernandez superby blends her understated yet emotional playing with Spencer's vocal stylings, offering strong support to his interpretations of the songs. Other performers also provide good back-up to the singer.

Spencer's warm, velvety voice successfully captures the emotional heart of the songs on his current CD as it evokes nostalgia for the days of the Rat Pack.

Jimmy Spencer performed at Barone's 13726 Oxnard St. in Valley Glen, On June 2, accompanied by Karen Hernandez for the release of his new CD "warm...".

Marvelous...it takes me to beautiful places...
This CD by Spencer is marvelous. Romantic, love lost and found. Easy to listen to alone, with friends, with someone special...dining or sipping wine. I like it all. It truly is a terrific journey. It takes me to beautiful places. Keep it coming Jimmy Spencer!

Mel Torme was called the velvet fog, but Jimmy Spencer would come close.
My earlier review still stands and then some. I just forgot the rating. I give it a definite 5 star rating.
Excellent!

Angie Kadisian

What a velvet voice
Jimmy Spencer certainly does have a velvety voice..WOW....
I was given this CD as a gift and I fell in love with it the first time through. It is truly a great CD to listen to again and again. I would have to say my favorite is PARADISE but all the others come in with a close second.
Thanks Jimmy Spencer. A marvelous gift!

Wonderful Sounds from the velvet voice....
Such wonderful sounds from a voice so smooth, strong but gentle. The musicians were such an added compliment. I loved the interpretation of some old standards. Very nice sounds for an evening of entertaining with friends or just enjoying alone. I have played this CD many times over and will continue. I will definitely recommend this one. THANK YOU Mr. Spencer. I am so glad I bought the ticket on the Love Boat -I really enjoyed the journey!

Great listening for a quiet evening of relaxing enjoyment
This CD by Jimmy Spencer is great listening for a quiet evening of relaxing enjoyment. Very romantic ballads to set the mood for a wonderful experience. His warm, velvet voice says it all. I just sit back, relax, enjoy a sip of my favorite beverage and enjoy! Thanks Jimmy....it's great!

Smoky, smooth, full bodied...not a wine, but Jimmy Spencer's WARM
Listening to Jimmy Spncer's WARM can be paired with your favorite wine, preferably a husky, full bodied Cabernet. His voice is distinctive but reminescent of Nat King Cole, Brook Benton, with a little Billy Ekstein. See what you think. Turn the lights down, daydream, and listen. Also very good with dinner guests as background music. Perfect for sharing with somebody special.

Mel Torme was called the velvet fog, but Jimmy Spencer would come close.
I tried expressing some thoughts about Jimmy Spencer's WARM while listening but found that listening and keyboarding don't match. His voice is smooth, velvety, a breathy baritone...very pleasing. Don't try to work and listen; sit down, relax, with or without a fine aged sippin' whisky, scotch, or dark red wine, and let his voice and ballads take you wherever you want to be, in a smoky lounge with your best squeeze, on a parkbench overlooking a beautiful city at night, or in your favorite chair, by yourself. Enjoy...
