    Why bring sand to the beach?

    Cincotti's playing, while technically advanced, sounds to me like one of a million kids I've heard come out of jazz factories like Berklee. Everyone does that whole lag behind the beat thing, trying to sound like Vince Guaraldi and man is it played out. It sounds too calculated, not visceral or spontaneous. Although his love for the music seems real enough, there is a saccharin, almost false quality to the whole thing. This is not the sound of someone who understands the art through real experience, rather someone who was sponsored from an early age by parents to become some sort of star. He is young though, so it'll be interesting to see where his sound evolves to. It takes years to develop one's own voice, right now he's trying on others' voices, namely Harry Connick Jr. Like I said, far be it from me to question his passion for the music, I'm sure it's real. We'll have to wait and see if he becomes anything real.

    Absolutely Amazing

    As a young fan of jazz, I was happily suprised to find out about Peter Cincotti. After listening to his c.d., I was amazed with his talent! He has such a soothing voice and excellent piano skills. 'Are You the One' is my favorite in the c.d. To top it off, I went to see him live on Nov. 29 and he simply blew me away! He is even better live, and if you have a chance to see him in concert I would highly recommend it! The future holds endless possibilities for this young man, and in my personal opinion 'Peter Cincotti' is going to be a name to be remembered in jazz history. Go out and buy the c.d. you will not regret it!

    A Must Have

    Peter Cincotti's debut album is a delightful mix of jazz, piano, song, and spirit. He has a wonderful voice, and the tunes are so fresh and original.

    Young At Heart

    I haven't had the opportunity to listen to Cincotti's CD. I have listened to the samples online, and that is more than enough to me to consider, not only buying the CD but also emphazising the wonderful talent Peter has. I am so glad that young musicians like Peter Cincotti keep this beautiful music alive. Not doubt Peter is going to make it very big. Cheers to his talent. Keep it up!!

    Peter is Perfection

    I grew up in a family of music. My mother was amoung the first all girl jazz bands in Iowa. She sang and played the stand up bass. I too had a very strong feeling when I heard Harry Connick Jr. I knew he was wonderful and would be great. I have that same feeling about Peter. His sound,his style, and his look are perfection. I only have one concern. I looked at Peter's concert schedule and Iowa is not on it! When can we get him here?

    Amazingly Young Talent

    I was quite impressed with this album. I highly recommend this CD to any jazz, Frank Sinatra, or Harry Connick Jr. lover. I'm 17 and an aspiring Jazz and Classical musician, and I loved it. It has a mix of relaxed songs and more up-beat tunes, that makes for just the right balance. For just a 19 year old he has such an amazing, powerful, and moving voice.

    A young man with an 'old soul'

    Peter Cincotti¿s self-titled debut is a wonderful album, filled with a charming elegance that seamlessly blends Peter¿s background in jazz and classical piano with a fresh new soul. After wowing people at the Algonquin Hotel¿s famed Oak Room, Peter has been attracting listeners and receiving acclaim from fans and critics alike, and this album showcases the extent of his musical abilities as a pop-jazz vocalist, pianist, and composer. ¿I Changed The Rules¿ is the opener for this record, and captures his unbridled musical talents with a youthful Sinatra-like voice. It also presents his rendition of the Beatles¿ ¿Fool on the Hill,¿ which segues beautifully into Nat King Cole¿s ¿Nature Boy.¿ This album is an attractive demonstration of this talented, young jazz vocalist, and is definitely not one to be missed.
