Curtis Stigers is best known for his mainstream rock work of the mid 1990s, but there were hints of jazz even then. In Secret Heart, his second jazz album, he again demonstrates considerable authenticity as a jazz singer and saxophonist.

These aren't all jazz standards though. Just as Baby Plays Around, his previous Concord Jazz release, included jazz covers of modern pop songs, so on Secret Heart Randy Newman, Ron Sexsmith and Steve Earle rub shoulders with Cole Porter, Harold Arlen and Henry Mancini. In addition, his own writing is solidly represented by the bluesy "How Could a Man Take Such a Fall" and the laid-back shuffle of "Swingin' Down At 10th & Main". His occasional tenor saxophone playing is perfectly accomplished and in no way embarrassed by the presence of such top drawer jazz instrumentalists as Larry Goldings, John Clayton and Jeff Hamilton. --Alfred Nowaks
