Eric van Aro’s “… from the Beginning and more” is an anthology spanning the past 20 years of his recording career. His private music vault holds all the master tapes he’s recorded for the past 2 decades. Now, he’s sharing 17 songs which include 2 brand new recordings, previously unreleased tracks, alternative versions and EDM remixes.
Highlights include: The touching ballad Until it’s time for you to go the first recording of Eric accompanying himself on the guitar, the jazzy Rhythm in my nursery rhymes with Caterina Valente on guitar and the late Silvio Franceso on clarinet, Put the weight on my shoulder with the soulful trumpet of Franco Ambrosetti, the Latin version of The Christmas Song with the dynamic Iguazu acoustic trio and a live version of the swinging Miles Blowin.
Reflecting on the album, Eric noted, “I’m a lucky guy who gets to sing some really exquisite songs. Listening to them now proves me right… serving them was absolute pure joy.
The words of renowned music critic Don Hekmann describe the album perfectly: The combination of high quality vocalizing, stylistic versatility and stellar musical setting clearly identify Eric van Aro as one of the current music world’s most appealing male vocalists!
