Where Do I Go From You?

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - William Pearl
A real old-school crooner, although still a youngish man, Phillip A. Chaffin gets the royal treatment on this program of vintage standards. Produced by Tommy Krasker (Audra McDonald, Mandy Patinkin, Dawn Upshaw), Where Do I Go from You is flush with the opulent sound of a full orchestra and just-right scores by a host of gifted arrangers. Chaffin sounds right at home amid all the finery, his honeyed voice wrapping itself around songs both familiar (?There?s a Lull in My Life,? ?Too Marvelous for Words,? ?Easy to Love,? ?At Last?) and uncommon (?I Woke Up This Morning Feeling Fine,? ?Two Blind Loves,? ?Can?t Teach My Old Heart New Tricks?). Sounding idiomatically ...

Barnes & Noble - William Pearl
A real old-school crooner, although still a youngish man, Phillip A. Chaffin gets the royal treatment on this program of vintage standards. Produced by Tommy Krasker (Audra McDonald, Mandy Patinkin, Dawn Upshaw), Where Do I Go from You is flush with the opulent sound of a full orchestra and just-right scores by a host of gifted arrangers. Chaffin sounds right at home amid all the finery, his honeyed voice wrapping itself around songs both familiar (“There’s a Lull in My Life,” “Too Marvelous for Words,” “Easy to Love,” “At Last”) and uncommon (“I Woke Up This Morning Feeling Fine,” “Two Blind Loves,” “Can’t Teach My Old Heart New Tricks”). Sounding idiomatically correct but never stuffy, Chaffin brings these great songs out into the fresh air again, reviving them with his vocal verve and obvious affection for their formal construction. No purveyor of cheap nostalgia, Chaffin is the real deal.
All Music Guide - Dave Nathan
Though this was released about 50 to 70 years later than the period of the songs honored by Philip A. Chaffin on his release Where Do I Go From You?, they have not lost one iota of their charm. These songs from the '30s, '40s, and one from the '50s have met the sternest test of all -- time. They form the bulk of the music played by jazz artists, cabaret performers, and big band-type singers such as Chaffin, who is joined by a huge orchestra conducted by Eric Stern with fresh, vibrant, dynamic, and animated orchestrations prepared by a bevy of individuals expert at their craft. A wide range of music is covered here. Chaffin's mellifluous-toned tenor fits this music like a form-fitting suede glove. Most but not all of the songs are familiar. There's a swinging "I Hear Music" and a lilting Glenn Miller tune, "At Last," with a come-hither trumpet opening. There are some that are revived probably for the first time in years, such as Johnny Mercer's "Can't Teach My Old Heart New Tricks" and Frank Loesser's "I Wake up in the Morning Feeling Fine." But whatever the vintage or the tempo, Chaffin's maple-syrup tenor squeezes every bit of feeling from each of them. And he does so seemingly without any effort at all, like honey running off the tongue. This album has everything going for it: attractive, familiar music; well-constructed charts; and a top-flight orchestra to play them all in support of a singer with a highly engaging voice who clearly loves what he is doing on this album. Recommended.

    bringing new life to old favorites

    I thought they stopped making albums like this. Where Do I Go From You is lush and lavish, with big-band charts that hearken back to Glenn Miller and Artie Shaw, plus tasty string-based arrangements that recall any number of wartime classics. And Chaffin, previously unknown to me, brilliantly captures the style and sound of the great crooners. It's a beautiful voice, but he also brings an authority and a depth that singers like Dick Haymes and Bob Eberle were rarely permitted to show. Chaffin's soaring renditions of ''Lull in My Life'' and ''Serenade in Blue'' -- just to name two -- bring new life to old favorites.
