Music Review: Buble croons, charms his way to concert success

Monday, August 13, 2007
By Rosa Colucci, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Loose was the operative word for Michael Buble as the 31-year-old crooner seemed to have dropped in on a party with 6,000 or so of his closest friends Friday night at the Petersen Events Center.

He found the time to wander into the audience and greet hundreds of adoring fans; rib the city for Sidney Crosby being here and not in his native Canada, and even bring out birthday cakes and have the audience sing their well wishes for a band member and his best friend.

He even said, "I'm having too much fun up here, I feel like I'm home."

The set opened with "I'm Your Man," "Meglio Stasera," "Me and Mrs. Jones" and "Call Me Irresponsible." Buble was not at his vocal best on these numbers as he backed off high notes and jived with the band. He introduced his wildly talented band and let them do their stuff for almost ten minutes to the delight of the audience. After that, Buble settled into a little more serious singing and delivered a beautiful version of "Always on My Mind."

The show picked up momentum from that point on. He sang beautifully on "Home," (dedicated to a couple who got engaged earlier in the day) and threw on a full Elvis persona for "That's All Right Mama."

The energy really picked up on a swing-styled "How Sweet it Is" followed by a bring-the- house-down version of "That's Life." The song featured a small local gospel choir whose smokin' sound was off the charts.

A Crooner Who Woos With Modesty, Humor and More Than a Little Swing

By STEPHEN HOLDEN
Published: August 2, 2007

Michael Bublé wants the world to know that just because he is a swinging crooner from the old school, he is not a good little mama’s boy looking to please the grown-ups by singing their music. That’s why he called his third studio album “Call Me Irresponsible,” he joked from the stage of Radio City Music Hall on Tuesday evening.

“Call Me Irresponsible” is also the title of the standard by Sammy Cahn and Jimmy Van Heusen that was a hit for Frank Sinatra and Jack Jones in 1963. And on Tuesday Mr. Bublé, accompanied by a 14-piece band, punched it out with a buoyant good cheer that turned it into a personal declaration of independence by a guy’s guy with few axes to grind.

A 31-year-old Canadian who is a protégé of the producer David Foster and of Paul Anka, Mr. Bublé, now a major pop star, is no hothouse flower who as a boy locked himself in a music room with a Victrola and a stack of sheet music. His suit and tie on Tuesday evening didn’t prevent him from playing the cutup. He may be catnip to women, but he also connects to men in a buddy-buddy sort of way.

He did an extended riff on manliness that included an affectionate, dead-on imitation of the early Elvis singing, “That’s All Right.” Horsing around with his musicians, he picked up a trombone and tooted out some phrases of “Try a Little Tenderness.” It all led to a musical joke about masculinity, as Mr. Bublé sang the Village People anthem “Y.M.C.A.” The audience didn’t seem to get it.
