Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
Italian star Zucchero has coaxed a wide variety of fellow artists into the studio over the years, and those vocal duets and other collaborations are gathered together on this collection, covering a period of over 15 years. This is one of those albums on which, intentionally, the selling point is the laundry list of co-stars, which is formidable: Jeff Beck, Andrea Bocelli, Bono as a songwriter, Solomon Burke, Vanessa Carlton on piano, Eric Clapton, Sheryl Crow, Miles Davis, Haylie Ecker of Bond, Macy Gray, John Lee Hooker, B.B. King, Cheb Mami, Mexican group Maná, Dolores O'Riordan of the Cranberries, Luciano Pavarotti, Sting, and Paul Young. These luminaries join ...

All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
Italian star Zucchero has coaxed a wide variety of fellow artists into the studio over the years, and those vocal duets and other collaborations are gathered together on this collection, covering a period of over 15 years. This is one of those albums on which, intentionally, the selling point is the laundry list of co-stars, which is formidable: Jeff Beck, Andrea Bocelli, Bono as a songwriter, Solomon Burke, Vanessa Carlton on piano, Eric Clapton, Sheryl Crow, Miles Davis, Haylie Ecker of Bond, Macy Gray, John Lee Hooker, B.B. King, Cheb Mami, Mexican group Maná, Dolores O'Riordan of the Cranberries, Luciano Pavarotti, Sting, and Paul Young. These luminaries join Zucchero to sing and play a batch of his songs and sometimes co-write them, with many of the lyrics in English. Zucchero has one of those familiar gruff rock baritones, most reminiscent of Peter Gabriel, though it sounds at times like Joe Cocker and even ascends into a Sting-like tenor. The music is mostly also familiar, bearing the trappings of Euro-American classic rock balladeering in a manner that ruled adult contemporary radio for much of the 1980s and '90s. It's no wonder that the album is a co-production of the Concord label, known for its classy jazz catalog but lately branching out into pop, and Hear Music, the recording arm of the Starbucks Coffee company. It's easy to imagine this music playing at a low volume in the nearest Starbucks coffee shop and intriguing patrons who recognize the voice of Sheryl Crow or a guitar lick by Eric Clapton and wonder where it comes from. And that's appropriate, since this album is as much a marketing concept as it is a musical one.

    The Ultimate Romantic Evening Album

    This is a fantastic copulation of music and artists that sets the romantic mood. You can feel the music right down to your toes. This is the third that I have purchased - everyone keeps wanting mine!

    Best CD i've heard

    over the last 5 years. Not that I listen to a lot of music but this has powerful voices (Dolores O'Riordan, John Lee Hooker, others!!) and great guitar (Clapton - although the DVD done at Albert Hall in London has Brian May!!!!!!) A Classic in my view

    This is a jem, a must for you collection !

    On the stength of "I Lay Down" with John Lee Hooker this CD is wouderful, the vocals are similar to Peter Gabriel. Clearly Zucchero is a hidden talent in North America.
