All Music Guide - Stewart Mason
Los Angeles-based cabaret performer Jon Philip Alman has a dramatic, Broadway-style voice at times reminiscent of Mandy Patinkin's but thankfully lacking Patinkin's histrionic tendencies. The stark vocals-and-piano setting of When You Get Home is cabaret for purists, but Alman wisely steers largely clear of the canonical song choices in favor of less familiar numbers by the core composers Rodgers & Hammerstein's "Younger Than Springtime" is the best known and songs by the likes of Stevie Wonder "Overjoyed", Jimmy Webb "If These Walls Could Talk", and best of all, Elvis Costello. Costello's Burt Bacharach collaboration, "Painted from Memory," is given an outstanding ...

Costello's Burt Bacharach collaboration, "Painted from Memory," is given an outstanding performance, one that quite possibly betters the original simply because of Alman's superior vocal technique. Costello, for all his genius, was simply too technically limited to fully realize this song's potential. The title track, Alman's sole composition, is a pleasant but slight pro-family affirmation that's a bit too preachy to sit comfortably in this company, but its heart is in the right place. The same could be said of the album as a whole.

    Simply Amazing...

    Blessed with a phenomenal voice, Jon Philip Alman's cd is riveting as he captures the emotional essence of each song he interprets. Passionate and full bodied, but never in excess, Alman knows how to use his voice in the service of the song. A truly heartfelt recording that moves and enlightens... Can't wait for the next one!
