Album Remarks & Appraisals:

Recorded live in London, the pianist and singer, Steve Ross, brings his considerable gifts and affinity for songs from the Great American Songbook to a selection of Stephen Sondheim classics.

American Record Guide, May/June 2016
Steve Ross is a nightclub and cabaret performer known for his concerts in New York and London. This recording is of his 2008 London concert of 18 Stephen Sondheim songs. The selection of songs is very good - a blend of the well-known songs from some unproduced shows and films. Ross sings in a light tenor voice and either sings or talk sings the lyrics effectively. Before I read the notes included with the packaging, I thought he sounded similar to Fred Astaire. The notes telll us that critics specifically cite the similarity to Astaire. He is an engaging performer, and his contact with the audience comes through in the recording. Ross accompanies himself on the piano. Excellent sound. There is a track list.
