    Todays crooner#1

    Just need some inspiration and input.
    Besides Harry Connick jr., Jamie Cullum and Michael Bubl?©, who are the crooners of 2007?

    Well Tony Bennett is still with us and kicking. Then Ray Gelato, Diana Krall and Madeleine Peyroux??

    Check out a guy from Buffalo, NY named Michael Civisca. I have all of his CD's and have seen him perform several times with our local big band. He can really swing! Nice guy too.

    His site is: www.michaelcivisca.com You can hear some of his tracks on it.

    Here's one for you.

    Matt Dusk. He is by far my favorite. He use to be the lounge singer at the Golden Nugget in Las Vegas. He's great. www.mattdusk.com

    Josh Groban is great, and as a group Il Divo do some good singing too.

    Interesting listening to the samples on the site - he sounds a lot like classic Sinatra.

    My God, he's fantastic!! I had never heard of him before, so I'm very grateful for the link and introduction, indeed! I have to agree with Mike above, he sounds almost identical to Sinatra, even with a "clearer" style, I think.
    As for my own suggestion, I'll put up Max Raabe. He's more 30's style, and I can see how he might put people off, but I think he's great.

    Josh Groban has the voice for crooning, but he hasn't ventured into this style of singing yet. Perhaps he'll explore it in his next album.
