Norm Lewis on CD

Norm LewisWhen I saw First You Dream at Signture, I picked up Norm Lewis’s CD, This is the Life.  The recording demonstrates a multifaceted artist who can successfully pull off a wide variety of mateial, from Broadway to Latin to Mozart.  The variety is terrific and demonstrates Lewis’s great prowess, but occasionally gets a little schizo as a listening experience. 

But Lewis also has a large ensemble with great orchestrations, which especially sizzle on numbers like It’s Not Unusual and the anthemic Go the Distance.  And the highlight of the CD is a duet with Audra MacDonald on All the Things You Are.
