Fiona's Comments

Maybe it was reflux? While there are many dreaming of gay amour, there are still a few that aren't. A rendition that captures the distillate of a thousand musicals.

About the Album

"This Heart of Mine" is a much-treasured American Songbook standard from 1946 – it was featured in the film "Ziegfeld Follies," and introduced by Fred Astaire. Johnny Boyds's take on it is a super-modern, intimate waltz. Boyd has been heralded as romantic, smooth, sophisticated and fun.” No one exemplifies modern-day crooning better than Johnny Boyd: smooth, romantic vocals; matinee idol charisma; classic gentleman’s style; and dynamic, irreverent performances. But it’s his fresh, emotive, all-original contributions to the Great American Songbook that will be his legacy. With his album, "Someday Dreams of You," Boyd introduces a whole new generation of listeners to the Great American Songbook and his classic crooning style.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
