Although I saw a few good tributes to Sinatra this year, nobody brought such fizzy joy to the centennial occasion as De Lorenzo. A consummate musician who makes you feel he's having the time of his life every moment he's on stage, which only adds to your enjoyment.

Brian De Lorenzo at Scullers Jazz Club

There are good shows and there are great shows, but once in a blue moon you’re at a cabaret and you know something extraordinary is going on.

Found Treasures CD

Although the title of Brian De Lorenzo's Found Treasures refers to the songs it contains, the cabaret singer is one himself. Possessing a clear tenor which he uses with earnest emotional intensity, De Lorenzo sings with complete commitment.

Found Treasures CD

Emotional honesty is a cabaret singer's stock in trade, and De Lorenzo has it. He makes every song sound like an account of his own experience and emotions, and he conveys each one with a directness that makes the experience the listener's as well.... De Lorenzo...is a talented music theater artist with an easy-to-listen-to voice, an engaging, emotionally honest style, and an uncanny knack for picking great, little-known songs.... Ask your record store for it, and if they don't have it, tell them they should.

When a singer has a voice like Brian De Lorenzo, musicians like to say, "He is a songwriter's best friend." Schooled in musical theatre since he was a child, De Lorenzo brings to the stage an instrument that is not only well-trained but strikingly beautiful. He has one of those rare voices that make first-time listeners stop and say, "Who is that?"

Talkin' Broadway

However, it's the sole male member of the troupe who gets the lion's share of the material. That's fine by me, as he's the versatile and strong singer Brian De Lorenzo. The guy has a real flair for the period style. Whether turning on the charm with a showy bit of flash or a sentimental ballad with his pure, high voice, he's perfect casting. I knew his talent and affection for more recent theatrical material from a well-done solo album, Found Treasures, so I'm not surprised.

His vocals place him among the best currently appearing on the New York cabaret scene.

De Lorenzo has a very pretty voice, he's especially good at making eye contact, and he's very likable. His "Tonight at Eight" is exuberant, he performs "My First True Love" with considerable personality and charm, and his rendition of "Giants in the Sky" has vitality.

CabaretFest! Provincetown

De Lorenzo had the audience alternately swooning and cheering in an unconventional version of "Who Will Buy" from Oliver, then had them mesmerized during "A Trick of Fate," by David Friedman. The trio's sensational reprise of "Fun/Stuck on You" demonstrated the shear joy of cabaret for both performers and audience. It doesn't get much better than this.

De Lorenzo has the ability to jump quickly into the feeling of each song, conveying emotion with every phrase he sings.

Lesley Alexander's Cabaret Roundup Welcome to the Club

He knows how to get to the heart of a ballad... He builds moments with a sweet earnest quality in both his voice and his demeanor... Well worth a listen.

A fabulous CD, worthy of it's topic. Beautifully produced. It reminds me of the days when Judy Garland dominated American entertainment.
