Feature CD of the Week

The Feature CD of the Week is Something Beautiful by Bob Mundy. It has been a little while since we featured a male vocalist; this one is just perfect for a feature.

Bob Mundy has a smooth, mellow tenor voice, of which is in full control at all times. He flows through these very popular songs with calm and subtle phrasing which bespeaks of his many years as an arranger, vocalist, pianist, and saxophonist. 

Mundy, a native of Queens, admits to being a self taught singer because of his love for singing from and early age. He listened to different styles of music as a child, from Classical to Jazz. 

After attending school and earning a BA in Music Performance and a BS in Music Theory, Mundy began his career playing piano for a variety show. After being asked to sing a song at one performance, he decided that he would be a vocalist. 

This is Bob Mundy's first solo release, and he says that he named it "Something Beautiful" using the 1st and last words from the medley "Something Good/Do I Love You Because Your Beautiful." 

In his own words Mundy says, "I had no idea that the title would wind up becoming so prophetic!" 

Jazz Lovers will concur. This is beautiful music delivered with a beautiful voice.
