Jeff Leyton - The Music of the Night - Wishaw Press

Theatre-goers are being thrilled by the talents of Jeff Leyton, currently appearing in the role of Jean Valjean in Les Miserables at Edinburgh's Playhouse.
At long last, fans clamouring for something to 'bring home' can have Jeff's first solo album. It features songs from hit musicals such as Les Mis, West Side Story, Phantom of the Opera, Miss Saigon and Jesus Christ Superstar. The album, produced by Jeff's nephew - internationally acclaimed jazz saxophonist Tommy Smith - is a classy mix of vibrant vocals and solid arrangements. The music, featuring the City of London Philharmonic Orchestra, is lush and lively without overshadowing the man who must be one of the finest interpreters of lyrics in the UK today. Jeff Leyton has selected a fine choice of showstoppers for his Music of the Night CD available from Glasgow's Linn Records. It's a must for musical theatre fans' CD racks.
