Overview

A Lot of Livin' to Do introduces Jonathan Poretz, an impressive new crooner whose singing sometimes recalls Mel Tormé (particularly on the more up-tempo material) but is fresh and original within the genre. Poretz has an attractive voice, he swings, and he shows versatility on the high-quality standards. High points include "A Lot of Livin' to Do," "I'll Remember April" and "On the Street Where You Live." Poretz's backup group is very jazz-oriented and there are quite a few excellent solos from Noel Jeweks (on four different instruments) and pianist Lee Bloom. Overall, this is a very impressive effort.
