    Leading Men Knock One Out of the Park

    I first came across this album as I was doing research to prepare for the role of Don Quixote in Man of la Mancha. I purchased Ron Raines's performance of the musical and then delved deeper and discovered this wonderful album. Here are five clearly classically trained singers (Raines went to school for opera at Julliard), three baritones and two tenors who are doing what they do best: standing and singing--park and bark as one of my old voice teachers used to say. The entire album is a hit parade of some of the greatest broadway songs for leading men from the last 50 years or so. The quintet banters jokingly back and forth and the concert must have felt like five talented dudes just hanging out with a piano and having a great time. The vocal standouts here are Raines and George Dvorsky, thier effortless baritones making a wonderful noise. Richard Muenz seems to warm up after his first song, and the only dissappointing track is Scott Holmes's rendition of High Flying Adored, sounding reedy and forced. But like Muenz, he warms up and the rest of his solo moments are well sung. Byron Nease also sings very well, his rendition of They Call the Wind Maria is quite good, however he sounds strained on Take the Moment from Do I Hear a Waltz near the end of the program. The medleys are the musical highlights of the concert, expertly arranged and sung with skill and more than a little tongue-in-cheek humor. If you like that good old leading man baritone sound, then snap this up!

    Awesome!

    I love this CD. The music is great. The Leading Men are awesome singers and funny, especially Scott Holmes. My favorite songs are ''As Seen On TV'', ''High Flying Adored'' and ''Let Me Be The Music.'' If you like Broadway musicals, you will love this CD
