This first in a three-volume set of popular love songs and show tunes should please the easy listener. The album is a departure from his usual faith-centered interpretations, and the gamble pays off. In his characteristic style, Marvin proves his astounding talent without sounding pompous or flashy. He manipulates the keys to add a personal dose to each song. The pianist tackles mega-hits and blockbusters including "Unchained Melody," "Music of the Night," "Somewhere Out There," "The Greatest Love of All," "Memory," and others. Marvin doesn't need any accompaniment; he can do it all himself.
