Russ Wilson | 7:30 PM
Once in awhile someone comes along and adds something fresh and bright to the great songs of the past and Russ Wilson clearly has done this. Having heard Russ sing as well as heard his various bands, what sets this performer apart from so many others is that Russ is authentic. His voice can be intimate or he can fill the room with his wonderful and powerful voice. His vocal control is on par with the best performers of the past who made these songs what they are today, standards. Russ stays true to the melody as written by the composer, refrains from overly embellished delivery, and is a credit to the The Great American Songbook which is alive and well on this wonderful new album. Whether it's a ballad or something with a bounce, Russ Wilson's affection for bands and vocalists now long gone, is infectious and his latest album "P.S. I LOVE YOU" is a "must have" for anyone who enjoys great music provided by a great performer. "P.S. I Love You" is a love letter to the listener, but also to the great composers, bandleaders, and vocalists of sweeter times and I am delighted to recommend this album to you from one of the best singers I know. ~ Johnny Holiday, Hollywood CA
