"Michael Buble

This kid can really swing.

That, in a nutshell, sums up the extraordinary appeal of a young Vancouver vocalist with a gift for making some of the greatest songs of all time entirely his own.

His name is Michael Buble (pronounced Boo-blay) and the evidence of his singular swingness is on abundant display with his irresistible Reprise/143 Records debut album. More than a tribute to the gold standard of music's most enduring songs; more than an homage to a bygone era of songwriting and performing: the thirteen tracks of Michael Buble announce in no uncertain terms the arrival of a major new talent with a flair for infusing the familiar and beloved music with a fresh, original and utterly unique sensibility entirely his own.

Michael Buble can, indeed, swing."

Muze PNote Michael Buble ranks among the best of the contemporary crooners working in a classic pop-vocal style, and his 2007 album, CALL ME IRRESPONSIBLE, further refines his suave, smooth style. With its finger-snapping big band arrangements, the album has its share of homage to Frank and Dino, both obvious cornerstones of Buble's music. But this isn't merely a retro exercise; the tunes, the production, and the overall feel are decidedly contemporary.
Muze PNote Stylistically adventurous versions of songs by Eric Clapton, Leonard Cohen, and Willie Nelson keep things lively, while "Everything," a Buble original, is one of the album's highlights. Still, cuts like the lead-off track ("The Best Is Yet to Come") and the old chestnut "I've Got the World on a String" will give listeners looking for some elegant, back-in-the-day pizzazz exactly that.

Entertainment Reviews
Expert Review Michael Bublé - Call Me Irresponsible - CD
By: Jeff Martin Blogcritics.org Reviews
Published on: 5/7/2007 7:40 PM
On this, his third studio album, Bublé covers a wide range of styles adding blues-pop and early-70's R&B to his favored Sinatra-era swing and jazz. The best of the latter category is "That's Life," which Bublé introduces with a gospel choir and, when singing solo, possesses all the charm and swagger that made the Chairman of the Board a cultural juggernaut. ...read the full review

Professional Reviews

Down Beat (p.76)
- 3 stars out of 5 -- "This CD is best when Buble wraps himself around the brass and reeds of a straight-up big band....John Hamilton and David Foster also provide a few high spots."

JazzTimes (p.91)
- "[Buble] suggests the caramel-smooth creaminess of Steve Lawrence, the sensual warmth of Vic Damone, the swingin' bravura of Dean Martin and the boyish showmanship of Wayne Newton."
