“No fancy title. No flashy color cover photo. Just a name over a black-and-white shot. But, oh, what's inside. Think of this as one of those brown paper packages tied up with string, because this is certainly only my favorite things.
With only a piano behind him -- well, only is a poor choice of words, considering the vivid underscoring provided by Stephen Schwartz, Bobby Peaco, Tim DiPasqua and Richard Oberacker -- Coulter glides his alluring tenor voice through 10 tracks, making it quite clear why he's twice received MAC and Bistro awards. There's an immediacy in his performance that is both captivating and compelling, whether he's driving his way through Corner of the Sky (paired on the opening track with Just Around the Riverbend) or confessing My Foolish Heart (with an inspired snippet of The Way He Makes Me Feel interwoven midway).

Before teaming with Debbie Gravitte for a stirring duet on In Whatever Time We Have, Coulter makes a moving and passionate plea from the heart -- and is at his interpretive zenith -- on Get Here.
