As with many emerging artists, Michael Buble is still developing a distinctive style of his own on COME FLY WITH ME. Regardless of that minor detail, what Buble does know is who he is as a performer, and what he wants to do with his considerable vocal talent. Reviving tunes made famous by artists such as Frank Sinatra, Peggy Lee, Tony Bennett, Elvis Presley, and Bobby Darin, Buble sings each melody with a fetching blend of deep respect and fresh-faced enthusiasm. And he has got the chops to back it all up--Buble is blessed with a sleek, warm tone in the tradition of the aforementioned royalty, as well as an undeniable ability to swing. Coming out backed by a full big band with punchy arrangements is one of his secret weapons--the guy surrounds himself with many like-minded musicians of an extremely high caliber. Highlights include a lightly swaying "My Funny Valentine" and a rousing yet nuanced take on "Nice 'N Easy."
