Thomas Young: Clair de Lune and Sister Moon

Tenor singer Young is backed by Mike Renzi, piano, Jay Leonhart, bass, and Grady Tate, drums on this eclectic release. Six songs, including “Clair de Lune,” are by the Romantic composer, Gabriel Faure. On these numbers the pianist is Susan Caldwell Nelson. On Sting’s “Sister Moon,” Young scats the opening bars. “My One and Only Love” has a beautiful Renzi piano solo. Young’s experience is primarily operatic so jazz listeners will need to adjust their expectations.
