Seth MacFarlane is better known as an actor, a participant in comedy shows. TV shows such as Family Guy and American Dad. I've always
thought he is Peter Brady's brother (Christopher Knight) -- separated at birth. But what we all didn't know, is that he is a singer, and has recorded two
big-band/easy listening albums. His first was released in 2011 - Music Is Better Than Words. His second, released in 2014, was a Christmas
album, entitled Holiday For Swing. His third and most recent album in 2015, No One Ever Tells You reached #1 on the Billboard Jazz Albums
chart in 2016. His style is definitely compared to other recent greats, as Harry Connick Jr. and Michael Buble.
17 tracks are on this release, and they're all worth listening to. The album leads off with the title track, as its gets the compares of the two
recent greats mentioned, and even ol' blue eyes, Frank Sinatra. Throughout the entire album, McFarlane's smooth soft slow crooning style fits the likes
of Sinatra and Connick Jr. All of the songs are in this style, as each one is truthfully entertaining, and makes Seth McFarlane just as great as the
past and present crooners who have recorded before him. He is THAT GOOD...
Every song is great, and will be enjoyed by the crooning fans of Big Band and Easy Listening music. It was a surprise to learn that MacFarlane is
a singer, and most notingly, Jazz. The same went for TV House's Hugh Laurie. Both of them are exceptional in the Jazz music genre. Laurie's first
album was a huge hit, as well as his second. Both of Laurie's albums reached #1 on Billboard's Jazz Albums chart. MacFarlane's No One Ever Tells
You was his first Jazz #1. I'm curious to hear his other two albums, released previously. Seth MacFarlane gets recognized, not only as a talented
actor, but gets the nod in Jazz music.
On that note, MacFarlane described this album as being in the style of Frank Sinatra's album In The Wee Small Hours. So true... The entire
album is more of the style of Sinatra, and even Connick Jr. Exceptionally well! Of the 17 songs, there were those written by well-known composers,
such as Sammy Cahn, Hart & Rodgers, Cole Porter, Henry Mancini, and more. No One Ever Tells You makes everyone want to listen to more of this kind
of music. It's relaxing, refreshing, and proves that older music such as this, is far better than what we are hearing now, in the 21st Century, as it is
called "Pop Music."
