Singing Tonite is definitely a landmark in the history of male vocal jazz.
Recorded at SearSound - one of the legendary NYC studios - it features a crew of world-class musicians whose discography tops 200 releases combined. Fortunately, one of Frederic's music particularities is to leave his musicians some space to comfortably express themselves. That's why, in addition to unforgettable vocal interpretations of a few standards and lesser-known jewels, you can hear really great jazz music here. An extremely talented personnel clearly happy to play together, 21st century arrangements by Alex Jacquemin, a technical recording and engineering team that features some of the best names in the industry on both sides of the Atlantic... everything adds up to make Singing Tonite a must-have in any quality music-lover audio library.
But the real magic of Singing Tonite lies in Frederic Lange’s soulful performances, his deep but uniquely warm voice (one immediately recalls Chet Baker’s best releases) and his very personal interpretations. On a wide variety of lyrics, from the bluesy What’s Your Story, Morning Glory to the more sophisticated Easy Come, Easy Go, from the energy-driven Goody Goody and Now or Never to the jazzified Pink Floyd cover San Tropez, from the ironic Caribbean calypso Doctor Kitch to the eternal French classic Les Mots Bleus (The Blue Words), Lange invites you to intimate journeys – in every sense of the word. Of French origin, Lange has also managed to keep a tiny touch of French accent that adds a particular flavor to his talented storytelling. For all these reasons, Singing Tonite really lives up to its promise: by yourself or together with your special someone, sit down comfortably, relax and just enjoy the music!
