MICHAEL STEINMAN JAZZ LIVES – 01.06.2017
We need beauty like this
A divine set of intimate, tender, hot performances by guitarists Spats Langham and Martin Wheatley on their first duet CD, THE LAND OF MIGHT-HAVE-BEEN. It is one of the more touching recitals in my collection, and I have one copy shelved under W, another under L. Beautiful playing and singing, with repertoire that — although sometimes obscure — instantly becomes precious: MUSIC, MAESTRO, PLEASE; EVERY DAY AWAY FROM YOU; TOO LATE; MY IDEAL; THE FIRST WEEKEND IN JUNE; THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS; SAY WHEN; THE THRILL IS GONE; P.S., I LOVE YOU; YOU’RE DANCING ON MY HEART; THE LAND OF MIGHT-HAVE-BEEN; GOLDEN EARRINGS; HOW DEEP IS THE OCEAN. In the ideal world of the previous century, I might have been able to write, “You’ll find it wherever better records are sold,” but I fear that this is no longer the case.
I greet these sweetly expert swing stars and hope for more. We need beauty like this. Seriously.
MICHAEL STEINMAN

    From the “cruel world we know,” Tom Langham and Martin Wheatley take us to a lovely “land-of-Might-have-been” of nostalgia and romantic songs of the heart. I love this collection of music from the 20s and 30s perfectly performed by this marvelous duo. It’s the first thing I play when I need to escape the “cruel world” ….thank you Tom and Martin! Buy this! You won’t regret it.
