Bob Mundy: Love to Me

Vocalist Bob Mundy has a rich tenor voice that charms you over with a team of Dan Kaufman/p,  Peter Slavov/b, Sam Dadigursky-Joel Frahm/sax, Dominick Faronacci/tp, Lage Lund/g, Yves Dharamraf/cel and Mark Ferber/dr.

The horns supply hip support as Faranacci delivers lyrical solos on the peppy and upbeat “You Wanna Bet” while sounding late night gasping on the heartfelt “But Beautiful.” Frahm wails as Mundy loosens his tie and collar on the bluesy “Getting Beyond Goodbye” while flexing his muscles as he swaggers on “Loads of Love.” Most attractive are the sonatas with Dharamraf’s cello, which adds soothing drapery to the dramatic “Carpe Diem” and the wondrous title track. A guy with boy-next-door charm.
