bringing new life to old favorites
I was afraid they'd 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 unfamiliar to me, brilliantly captures the style and sound of the great crooners. It's a beautiful voice, but he also brings a power and a depth that singers like Dick Haymes and Bob Eberle were rarely permitted to reveal. Chaffin's renditions of "Lull in My Life" and "Serenade in Blue" -- to name just two -- bring new life to old favorites.
