ERIC MICHAEL GILLETT
Careless Rhapsody: The Heart of Lorenz Hart
"One of the Top 10 Vocal CD's of 2015-Sound Advice
Eric Michael's new CD is garnering rave reviews:
"In the cabaret world, tribute CDs seem to be a dime a dozen, but few ever truly shine as brightly as Eric Michael Gillett’s Careless Rhapsody: The Heart of Lozenz Hart. This, his third solo CD, is his most accomplished. The brilliance of Larry Hart’s incredible lyrics, along with mostly Richard Rodgers’s music, makes this recording soar. Filled with some of the Great American Songbook’s greatest hits previously sung by some of greatest singers, these songs take off again in this collection.
...Having hosted a radio show devoted to cabaret and jazz for 17 years on WDVR-FM in New Jersey, I have listened to many new recordings, but Careless Rhapsody: The Heart of Lozenz Hart is one of the most thrilling albums dedicated to a single artist I have heard in a long time. Bravo."

"Eric Michael Gillett's generous delivery of Hart's versatility lets your cup runneth over. And Richard Rodgers' celebrated melodies are well served by this award-winning singer-actor-director-vocal teacher who can croon or use the full power of his impressive theatre-honed voice. It's great to hear this veteran of Broadway shows (Kiss Me Kate's revival, The Frogs, and The Sweet Smell of Success). In an easier-said-than-done (for most) approach, he lets the song's emotions dictate what kind of voice colors to display."
