article imageReview: Mario Frangoulis stunning on 'Beautiful Things' album Special

By Markos Papadatos     Nov 24, 2017 in Music
International tenor Mario Frangoulis has released his stunning studio album "Beautiful Things." Frangoulis served as executive producer, with Steve Wood as producer.
The CD opens with the gorgeous title track, the calming ballad "Beautiful Things," and it is followed by the optimistic and empowering "I Believe in You," as well as "Because We Believe," which has a neat orchestral arrangement to it.
"A Hero Is Inside" is an impressive collaboration with Vanessa Williams. "Un Passo Verso Te" is another polished, piano-driven ballad. Greek songstress Alkistis Protopsalti joins him on the aggressive "Rojo Violento."
Equally hypnotic and poetic is "Time for Me," where his vocals are slightly reminiscent of Josh Groban, which should be taken as a compliment. In "Strong," he showcases his powerful storytelling ability, thus proving that he is a song stylist.
Frangoulis' album closes with a controlled version of "Maria" and the French tune, "Un Jour, Un Enfant," which he sings flawlessly.
Most recently, on November 6, Frangoulis performed for Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York City.
