From the Goodwill collection -- Nick Scotti's self-titled album, from 1993. Definitely having a 1990s sound (Dance / Pop), "Get Over" was co-written and
co-produced by Madonna. It was the album's second single, where the first, was a remake of Harold Melvin & The Bluenotes' "Wake Up Everybody." Set in style
as many other Dance and Pop artists, this album does have a good vibe. A good vibe indeed; this is a powerful album, of Dance, R&B, and many of the songs have a
Gospel-tinged flavor, or even New Age Jazz,
His real name is Domenico Nicola Aniello Scotti; he is an American actor, model and singer. He had left high school for a career in modeling. By age 19, he had
travelled to Japan and France. He would become a popular male model. In 1996 he appeared on the cover of Newsweek, with the heading "Biology of Beauty." He would
record only one album, his self-titled album, released in 1993.
Throughout the end of the 1990s decade, he would appear in television and films. Among his credits were playing the character Tony Viscardi, on the daytime soap
opera, The Young and the Restless. His film credits: the independent film Kiss Me, Guido - directed by Tony Vitale, and Scotti achieved a Leonardo
da Vinci award. His other movies were Bullet (1996), and Detroit Rock City (1999). His television credits: Sex and The City, and Tracey
Takes On. In 2004, he hosted his own cooking/fashion/lifestyle show, on the Style Network, entitled New York Nick.
As for his only music album, his self-titled album is definitely a good album. Having the styles of Dance, and more on the R&B style, it has Gospel and New Age
The album leads off with Madonna's involvement, "Get Over." This song definitely has the Madonna feel, as she co-produced, co-wrote, and provided
background vocals for this song. However, the next song is quite better, as "Slow Down" has the R&B feel, maybe a little New Age Jazz. Another '90s
group comes to mind - Soul II Soul, and their hit "Back To Life." "This Could Take All Night" is another good tune, with its cool, smmoth R&B style.
The next track, "Life Is What You Make It" is more on the Dance style, and it just may not be as competitive as the others, where the Harold Melvin & The
Bluenotes' "Wake Up Everybody" remake is much better. Quite better, with it's Dance and R&B styles, and even a gospel touch. Continuing on to the next song,
and it is also a good one - "Alone With You" is smooth R&B. As mentioned, another good tune. "Are You Gonna Give" is another Madonna'ish tune,
with its Dance style, but, there are other tunes to mention that are better than this one.
"Nothing Stays The Same" continues with the good vibes of R&B (again). "Just No Justice" is another good (!) R&B track, and has a Gospel'ish
flavor. The album ends with the slow-paced, smooth ballad'ish "Feel The Need." This song has a David Bowie feel to it; a song that Bowie himself could have
Nick Scotti is a head-turner. It has good R&B flavored tunes. Also having a Gospel feel, especially for his background singers in various songs.
He only recorded one album, and he did a very good job. The entire album as a whole, is quite good; sure, some songs better than others, but that doesn't make
the album any worse. It's a good album, matching the 1990s Dance style, mixed with R&B, and Gospel and New Age Jazz tones. It's an album that will grow on you.
It's good. If you're a fan of 1990s Dance/Pop/R&B, Nick Scotti's self-titled album is a good listen.
