Forget about the health issues and
personal problems---George Michael
sounds just fine, super in fact, on his
first new album in seven years, record-
ed live during his 2011-2012 Symphon-
ica tour in Europe.
Time has not taken a toll on Michael s
voice, which if anything sounds more
supple and emotive than during his ear-
lier pop incarnations.
Gone is the swagger and blatant
"come and get it" sexuality, replaced by
a more subtle singer happy to pay hom-
age to Nina Simone, Marvin Gaye and
other giants as the album unfolds.
He strikes a wistful tone, lamenting
lost youth, in John and Elvis Are Dead,
and captures the yearning and loss at
the heart of the old standard Wild Is
There s a jazzy feel, with some swing,
to his cover of the timeless My Baby
Just Cares for Me, and he captures per-
fectly, without overdoing it, the pathos
of the American depression-era classic
Brother Can You Spare a Dime.
Michael avoids a number of traps on
this album, which was produced by the
late Phil Ramone, who also teamed with
the singer in 1999 on Songs From the
Last Century. Michael deserves credit
for moving deftly into big band and
orchestral territory without in any way
trying to imitate the master, Frank Sina-
tra, or taking on the vocal tics of the
many other artists who have turned to
American standards as a mid-career
tonic. The style and phrasings are all his
own, confident and understated, and
the sparse arrangements allow ample
room for his hypnotic voice to soar. By
instinct, he shies way from self-drama-
tising vocal pyrotechnics, letting the
melodies and lyrics carry the day.
There is a simple clarity to this
approach, but it also means the new
release can seem a bit slow in places.
The beat is too subdued, the tempo too
languid, and the production too lush at
times. The collection could use a show-
stopper, a hint of R&B, a touch of cruelty
or anger to set off its mellow tone. It
would benefit from a bit more tension,
more of a climax toward the end.
But the quality of the singing puts
Michael head and shoulders ahead of
the other middle-aged and older English
rockers looking to the Great American
Songbook for inspiration. Michael
sounds effortless and free, as if he could
do this for decades to come. (AP)
