The Bobby Caldwell formula works again!


Bobby Caldwell never ceases to amaze me. Now recording in his 5th decade, Bobby is now back with "House Of Cards," his 12th studio recording.
For those who covet the R&B side of Bobby then you will be very pleased. "HOC" contains that classic formula, especially on the cuts like "Game On,
One Of Those Nights" and the new single "What About Me." That particular cut has a very smooth groove to it...think late 70's Maurice White & EWF. Of
course it wouldn't be a fantastic Caldwell CD without a few ballads and they are indeed here. "Blue," which features sax work from Dave Koz is right up
there as one of his best compositions and should be a concert favorite. "It's All Coming Back To Me Now," co-written with long time band member Mark McMillan
is also a very strong cut and it will please those fans of Bobby who favor the crooner side of BC. As his loyal fans already know Bobby is one of the best vocalists
that the biz has ever seen. Such a talent and though many years have passed since we first heard him back in 78-79 he only gets better. "HOC" is valid proof of that.
Glad to have you back Bobby!

Been a fan of Bobby Caldwell since WYWDFL and once again, he hits it out of the park. This CD is a must have, each cut as good as the last. There is classic R&B throughout, Latin influences in Dance With Me and a bit of country on Hearts On Fire. My favorite, and its hard to chose just one, is It's All Coming Back To Me Now as I'm partial to smooth jazz and piano. Bobby Caldwell proves again, that he is not only a first rate singer and performer, but also a top notch songwriter and musician. Give it a listen, you'll love it.

New Bobby Caldwell Music!


Bobby Caldwell's "House of Cards" - what a dellightful cd. His mixture of "the bobby sound", is all over this cd. The smooth jazz, the r&b and the pop sounds of bobby are in this cd but as a bonus he also has a fun latin tune and a couple of country tunes to show us his vast vocal chops. Love it! "House of Cards" has to be added to your cd collection.

About Bobby Caldwell

Bobby Caldwell has been a favorite among fans of sophisticated R&B and contemporary jazz since 1978, the year the singer, songwriter, and guitarist hit the Top Ten of Billboard's Hot 100 and R&B charts with "What You Won't Do for Love." Originally from Manhattan and later raised in Miami, Caldwell was exposed to a wide variety of musical influences by his parents, hosts of the television variety show Suppertime. Only a few years after he started studying piano and guitar, he opted to enter the music industry, but it wasn't until the following decade that he signed to the T.K.-distributed Clouds label and broke through with What You Won't Do for Love, his first of several albums. Although Caldwell had a strong following in the U.S., built through continual touring and nine wide-ranging studio albums issued during the '80s and '90s, he also became a superstar in Japan. Throughout the 2000s, he recorded frequently, continued to perform his deep catalog, and starred as Frank Sinatra in the Las Vegas show The Rat Pack Is Back. Several additional albums followed during the 2010s, including sets of standards and big-band numbers, as well as Cool Uncle, a stylistic diversion with admiring producer Jack Splash. ~ Jason Ankeny & Andy Kellman
