A marvelous composition of Classic standards. Mr. Von Essen's voice is delightful to listen to. When combined with Billy Stritch arraigning and accompaniment the two musical masters create a Disc to be listened to time and time again. Get your Martini's ready.
Wow! This mans talent is unbelievable! I’ve seen him perform in person many times, soon again when his show Falsettos come to LA! Alexa has been playing it for me all day! I order a CD for the car. His velvety voice is amazing. I adore him!
If you enjoy Broadway and old standards, you will absolutely LOVE "Call me Old Fashioned: The Broadway Standard." Max's voice is incredible, and he has so much control over his instrument. Your toes will be tapping, your heart will be singing (maybe your voice as well), and you will be moved. I play this on repeat in my car as I travel around San Diego! Do yourself a favor and get this album for yourself. You deserve it!
Max von Essen simply has the most beautiful male voice working in the theater today. I also love that the Great American Songbook still lives so vibrantly for many. The song selections are superb, and Max von Essen chose Billy Stritch for his debut CD. What a wise choice: Billy is contemporary and fun and lets Max be the star with unfussy but deft arrangements and accompaniment. YUMMY
