Scott Dreier is a theater performer who made his recording debut on this CD. His voice is strong and powerful although he lacks subtlety or any real variety in his interpretations. One should not look to these often-overblown performances for any soul or originality. The emphasis is more on projecting his voice in a style not radically different from Liza Minnelli's or most stage performers. Despite the jazz talent in the backup band, the focus throughout is almost entirely on Dreier, so this disc is primarily recommended to fans of Broadway-type singers.
