    The arrangements are sharp and witty, the singing deceptively easygoing, and the guitar playing just terrific.

    The good stuff, whenever it was first made, is just good. And there's no reason not to have fun with it. John Pizzarelli is good at the fun stuff, again.

    Shockingly, it all works--quite well. If you like Pizzarelli, you'll enjoy this immensely. If, however, you find his voice too thin and nasally, then Double Exposure won't win you over.

    What's charming about this album, beyond the sheer quality of the songs and the arrangements, is Pizzarelli's obvious and genuine love for this really broad gamut of material, and his insight into the varied qualities that make them all great songs.
