Title - 'SoHo Suite' (UOM)
Artist - Anders Holst

The lush, smoky, velvet vocal tones of Anders Holst when singing romantic ballads have always made us stand up and take notice. But now, here on 'SoHo Suite' he has upped his own standards of musical creativity.

Indeed, this new album not only continues the tradition this American Smooth Jazz Awards nominee has created for himself, but builds on it and take sit further.

'How Many Times Do You Fall In Love?' is a very freeflowing track and a great way to begin the album. 'Love Surrender' is a slight swing sound from back in the day that Dean Martin could have sung and as much as 'I Will Pray' is one of the album fillers, 'Time Is Not Waiting' brings us back to a hip-tappin' moment of perfect musical solitude.

'Almost Forgotten' is more of a statement song, a kind of spoken-word track for the most part. It doesn't exactly fit perfectly on the album, in general, but the lovely, truly lush 'To Forgive Is Divine' makes up for some of that feeling in dramatic style.

The cover of 'I Keep Forgettin' (Every Time You're Near)' is great, a little slower than the original from Michael McDonald. And as much as it doesn't have the heart that McDonald's does, it is still a very nice cover song.

The slow jazz feel of 'What Your Love Has Done To Me' is again very Rat Packish, with the cello-fused 'Sometimes the Light' and quiet 'As Far As My Eyes Can See' rounding out this (in general) terrific album from Holst.
