    Chesky Records is pleased to announce the release of Songs for Lovers by Carlos Franzetti.   This recording finds the world-renowned arranger/composer stepping up to the microphone for a classy collection of jazz standards and a few modern surprises.

    Following his acclaimed 2005 Chesky effort, Jazz Kamerata, Franzetti revisits his enduring love of crooning on Songs for Lovers.   This release pairs the versatile musicianís smooth voice with the lush orchestral sounds of the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra.   With Franzetti also handling all the orchestral arrangements, itís easy to draw comparisons to the work of late geniuses like Frank Sinatra and arranger Nelson Riddle.

    Songs for Lovers is perfect listening for those late night romantic moments.   Among the songs featured are classic standards such as “Skylark” and “It Might As Well Be Spring,” plus more contemporary fare like Paul Simon's “I Do It for Your Love” and one original composition that Franzetti co-wrote with his wife, the celebrated pianist Allison Brewster Franzetti.
