Years ago, I used to spend a lot of time at mp3.com. It was there that I discovered many talented music groups and performers, seeing each new link as a possibility for new treasures. Of course, some songs were much better than others, but it is not always about music quality.
Luckily, the following artist had both soul and talent to back him up. I was first introduced to Matthew Aaron Dusk‘s music in the form of covers of lounge and jazz performers such as Frank Sinatra Sr and Tony Bennett. I loved the crispness of classics such as Fly Me To The Moon, Chicago and Luck Be A Lady, but unlike many artists that have attempted to emulated these great performers of decades-past, Matt hit it in the bulls-eye.
However, the following is a newer release by Dusk, showcasing his talent as a performer. Good News is the title track from the 2009 LP release Good News. It is more modern than the jazz and lounge stuff that first introduced me to his music, but doesn’t lose any of the charm. Instead, it again hits the mark by conveying the emotions of a person in love – with hope and trust for the future.
