All Music Guide - John Bush
For 50 years, Johnny Mathis has wrapped his velvet voice around some of the best light pop arrangements in music -- whether it's Mitch Miller in 1958 or Thom Bell in 1977 or Walter Afanasieff in 2008. The 2008 edition, captured on A Night to Remember, may provoke few surprises -- the guests are frequent, the arrangements ineffably slick, the voice smooth yet heart-tugging -- but ...

All Music Guide - John Bush
For 50 years, Johnny Mathis has wrapped his velvet voice around some of the best light pop arrangements in music -- whether it's Mitch Miller in 1958 or Thom Bell in 1977 or Walter Afanasieff in 2008. The 2008 edition, captured on A Night to Remember, may provoke few surprises -- the guests are frequent, the arrangements ineffably slick, the voice smooth yet heart-tugging -- but it's a fine latter-day album for Mathis, who spent the 2000s recording more Christmas albums two than non-Christmas albums one. It's also his first straight-ahead adult contemporary record in a decade. Mathis sounds fantastic for a septuagenarian, and his duets whether with singer or instrumentalist prove his talents with the classic warm duet. The material he chooses is excellent as well; most of the songs strike the proper balance between the type of song everyone's heard but never needs to again, and the ones that should be heard more but might take more listens to carry. As well, it's a golden opportunity for producer/arranger Walter Afanasieff. Since the early '80s, Afanasieff has helmed most of the best records by many artists who have come later and courted the same audience as Mathis -- Michael Bolton, Celine Dion, Luther Vandross, Mariah Carey, and Kenny G, to name a few. He definitely saved his best for this date, a landmark in his career though it comes too late in Mathis' career to outsell some of Afanasieff's classics. Of course, there's never a moment that's not slick and polished -- after all, not one but two smooth jazz saxophonists Kenny G and Dave Koz are featured on duets -- but the playing and textures from most of the musicians involved are genuinely inspiring.

The 72-year-old crooner's voice is still compelling, and he sounds like he means every sentimental word.

    Great CD!

    This album is sooo smooth and soothing. I'll play it over and over again. I love everything that Johnny Mathis sings.
