Genre: Blue-eyed Soul. Fantastic pop rock jazz album from 70's better know from hit "What You Will not Do for Love" but when we get to know this album better, it's going to turn out that songs like "Down for the Third Time" or "My Flame" are all about a few classes better. I often say the word "underrated" here, but I am trying to remind people about these albums, sometimes forgotten and underestimated by critics. 1. 1y. Zach (Formerly: Thanos). 86. Me: If this dont put you in the mood to get down and dirty I dont know what will, this is truly beautiful and romantic.
Equally importantly, Caldwell has taken over the production reins on After Dark, showing a penchant for working with a large orchestra. The result is that even well worn Sinatra songs like "My Kind of Town" and "Come Fly With Me" sound full-bodied and completely authentic. The gentle swing of "Please Be Kind" is a hidden gem, and the beautiful take on "In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning," with Caldwell sharing the spotlight with the piano intro by Long and the smooth sax solo of Neu, is another high point. Caldwell even takes a turn on the album, creating a new, samba-fied version of his signature "What You Won't Do For Love. There have certainly been dozens of Sinatra tribute albums over the years, but few have had the kind of lovingly authentic feel as After Dark.

Bobby Caldwell is one of only a handful of white vocalists (Van Morrison and Simply Red's Mick Hucknall, to name a couple more) who legitimately transcended the blue-eyed soul tag. Caldwell's genuine mix of R&B and jazz signatures as well as his bittersweet yet buttery vocal tones conjure up images of a smoothed-out version of Chet Baker. On this, his breakthrough album, the native New Yorker scored a hit with the timeless "What You Won't Do for Love" and also polished off another near-classic on "My Flame.
