Excalibur : Unforgettable

Review: Excalibur's third CD and we think, their best. Considered to be a contemporary barbershop group, they have placed consistently in the top ten in competition. With arrangements by Greg Volk, whose distinctive style has been in demand by countless quartets of late (including Acoustix), the showpiece of this recording has to be the "Sound Of Music" medley. Featuring a series of amazing and inventive transitions, it's inspired, particularly "Edelweiss" and "My Favorite Things." The title track illustrates the group's forte, interpreting standards; however, they also include competition-friendly arrangements of songs such as "Ida," "Ain't She Sweet" and "Atlanta's Jumpin'." Finally, the "America" medley ends on a stirring note - is there some kind of award for "most challenging tag"? Salute!

Songlist: You'll Never Go Wrong With a Son, Sound of Music Medley, You Made Me Love You, Alley Cat, Unforgettable, Your Mother Should Know Medley, Atlanta's Jumpin' (This Jount Is Jumpin'), There Goes My Heart, Ida / Ain't She Sweet Medley, Nice Work if You can Get It, America Medley
