Description
One of the greatest male singers of the past 50 years, Joe Williams performed exquisitely whether he was singing down-home blues or standards and romantic ballads. The emphasis is on the latter in this 1994 outing, with "What a Wonderful World," "When I Fall in Love," "If I Had You," "Maybe September," "Young and Foolish," "I Didn't Know About You," "A Time for Love," and more.

"If the rest of the album were totally blank, it would still be an essential purchase on the strength of the title tune that opens it. Rarely has there been a more consummate blend of singer, arranger, song and lyric. The honors are shared by Williams [and] Robert Farnon with his opulent strings and woodwinds…. 'Here's to Life' is a poignant work, powerfully refuting the often-espoused theory that 'they don't write great songs like that anymore.' As icing on the cake, the recital ends with a reprise of the tune, this time accompanied by George Shearing on piano."—Leonard Feather, LATimes

"Williams is in particularly strong form, interpreting the ballads in dramatic and sensitive fashion."—All Music Guide
