Song of the Week: Michael Buble – “Home”

MichaelBuble.jpgYoung retro jazz vocalist Michael Buble, a protégé of David Foster like Josh Groban, has a fondness for big, brassy jazz numbers and for corny love songs. But on “Home,” a beautiful song from his new CD called It’s Time, Buble has written an original tune that’ll break your heart.

Voicing a familiar sentiment, Buble positions himself as the world-weary traveler – too many cities, too many airports – who longs to travel home to see his true love again. Trite, but listen to Buble sing it and you’ll think it’s the first time you’ve ever heard it. Among those helping out are Foster on piano, bassist Brian Bromberg, drummer Vinnie Colaiuta and guitarists Dean Parks and Brian Green.
