Great Performances Michael Buble Caught in the Act (#3015)
Inspired by the swinging big band sound of his grandfather's generation, 29-year-old Canadian phenomenon Michael Buble has won the hearts of a new generation of fans with his charisma, stage presence, and superbly seductive voice. Inviting inevitable comparisons to a young Frank Sinatra, Buble's unique approach to an eclectic array of popular standards reveals a keen musical intuitiveness that has rapidly distinguished him. "Buble reinterprets every song he touches, "writes The Chicago Sun Times, "making them accessible to new, younger, hipper audiences who are realizing big band isn't just for grandma and grandpa." This concert special captures Michael Buble working his vocal magic on a diverse selection of songs from his current hit album, Michael Buble: It's Time, such as "Feeling Good," "I've Got You Under My Skin," "Song for You," "Save the Last Dance forMe," and "Home."
