Bob Stewart
One Life
VWC

Bob Stewart obviously loves singing about love, both sad and successful encounters. A consistent poll-winner in the '50s, he's back on the New York scene delivering the kinds of songs that Sinatra, Torme and Damone were known for. Sincerity is Stewart's stock in trade as he croons brief versions (averaging just under four minutes) of 17 songs, mostly evergreens such as "On a Clear Day," "Everything I Have Is Yours" and "Good Morning Heartache." But he also puts his mark on "Here's To Life," "How Do You Keep the Music Playing?" and the title track, written by and dedicated to the late Bobby Scott. Due to the brevity of the tracks, there isn't much time for instrumental improvisation, but pianist Bobby Kaye, bassist Chip Jackson, drummer Ronnie Zito and guitarist Jack Wilkins deliver first-rate support.
