Album Review

Vocalist/pianist Peter Cincotti burst onto the jazz scene in 2003 as an 18-year-old wunderkind much in the same way that Harry Connick, Jr. positioned himself as an updated crooner with a debut album of enjoyable if predictable standards from various decades. Interestingly, Cincotti's follow-up, On the Moon, finds him exploring funk and soft rock balladry. Similar to his British contemporary Jamie Cullum, Cincotti seems intent here on mixing a radio-friendly melodic pop aesthetic with his jazz chops. In fact, the title track sounds a lot like Cullum's single "All at Sea," which is not to say that Cincotti is ripping anybody off. On the contrary, while there are touches of David Gates, Barry Manilow, and even Coldplay, it is hard to pinpoint any concrete influences for Cincotti's singer/songwriter style. While original songs are the focus this time around, there is also a bevy of inspired standard tunes. To these ends, he opens the album with a funky, hip-hop-influenced take on "St. Louis Blues," gives "Bali Ha'i" a bluesy Sting-influenced vibe, and turns "Up on the Roof" into a cinematic ballad. Adding to the lush atmosphere are full string arrangements and guest spots by such sought-after New York artists as keyboardist Sam Yahel, trombonist Wycliffe Gordon, and drummer Kenny Washington.

Customer Reviews

Fantastic!

What a fantastic album! On first listening it seems okay.. then it seems to hit you.. Peters voice is amazing (and I am a Jamie Cullum fan so there is a lot to live up to). Buy this album, grab a glass of wine or beer, sit in the sun and chill... you'll be so relaxed afterwards!

Up and Comer!

Stunning debut from Peter Cincotti, this guy is a little bit more original than Michael Buble and has a stunning Jamie Cullumesque voice yet is also quite different from both artists. Despite the obvious comparisons which will be made he is actually very individual in style and sound which is shown on a great mixture of songs that are a delightful change from rehashed versions of Sinatra classics. This guy is about the jazz and is not a sinatra wannabe, this in my opinion is something he is all the better for. Definately one to watch !
