Matt Monro Stranger in Paradise (UMC)

This set brings together the great crooners ‘lost’ Broadway album and twenty seven of his biggest hits. Some people may dismiss him as a second division Sinatra but even Frank once commented: “His pitch was right on the nose; his word enunciations letter perfect; his understanding of a song thorough.” The first CD sees him and an intimate group of musicians interpreting Broadway classics while the second is lit by hits such as ‘Born Free’ and ‘From Russia With Love’.
