"Ben Black's voice is singularly gorgeous” - Jazz Times. In "Remembered Faces...," Black explores music from Japan, Brazil, Ireland and even America, with many of the songs exploring the continuing inequities of racism and prejudice. Recorded after months of studying Japanese, Spanish and Portuguese, Black's flawless approach to the lyrics and his deep connectedness to the songs create a truly "time-stands-still" experience for the listener. "The smooth style of Jimmy Scott, Sarah Vaughan, and Mel Torme drift in his sound. His hushed and intimate sound recalls Shirley Horn. Broad musical experiences inform Ben's mature delivery." - Silver Platter Magazine "Blacks breathy, clear extensions are reminiscent of Chet Baker's 50's singing on Pacific Jazz." - Victory Music Review. Originally released in 2001.
