As if to prove I truly use the shuffle function, up comes a Michael Buble tune that, although nice, is not anywhere near the top of my musical food chain. Typically, I’ll hit next when one of his songs comes up in the queue. Not this time though. Michael Buble is a huge world-wide superstar, a Canadian crooner at the top of his craft. He sells out anything and anywhere. His style is a throwback, a scotch drinking smoker with a crazy sense of humour, and, of course, a great singing voice. This tune, “Comin’ Home Baby, is from his “Call Me Irresponsible” album and is a duet with Boyz II Men. The song is a jazz tune from 1961, originally done by the Donald Bailey Quartet, later recorded and turned into a hit by Mel Torme. Many artists have covered it, including Herbie Mann, David Sanborn and Quincy Jones.
Enjoy, and let’s hope the shuffle God is kinder next time.
