There exist in this world champions of standards singing in all of its
various forms. One of those people is Bruno Pollacci. Based in Pisa,
Italy, Bruno puts together three online broadcasts – Dubidubidu (a sweetly titled program of Italian jazz vocalists),
AnimaJazz (instrumentalists), and A Voice, A Soul (standards singers
from all of the world). I am delighted that both The Nearness of You
and I’m in Heaven Tonight have received spins on A Voice, A Soul.
in Heaven Tonight debuted on this program over the summer with “On the
Street Where You Live” (A Voice, A Soul n. 109). (Yes, I know this
isn’t the most timely post, but I’m doing some post-natal catch up of
some pre-natal work.) This broadcast includes some very well-produced
tracks with a strong
traditional pop bent. I invite everyone to listen to this program,
especially those of you who like traditional pop interpretations.
