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

the last track

the final song on this album is called Cherokee and it is an amazing piece of piano work. The Itunes sample gives you an idea of what's in store. Great song.

More fun in concert

I saw him in my area recently, and got the CD later for some reason... Anyway, hearing him live was great, and his interpretations of actual jazz songs were great, along with the chemistry of his combo. It's too bad that his more pop-oriented songs are on this CD, but it's not a big deal if that's what sells records; eventually I assume he'll assume a niche more similar to Jamie Cullum.

Fu****g awesome!

I hardly listen to Jazz at all, but this guy caught my ear while his demo of "St.lewis blues" played on a stereo in an electronics store. what an awesome voice and melody. very elegant sound, but fun as well. I really like this stuff, but I usually listen to rock and hip-hop, ha!
