Title - 'Love Italian Style'
Artist - Perry Canestrari
Perry Canestrari is one of the most beloved singers to come from Canada in recent memory.
With names like, Michael Buble`, Celine Dion, Brian Adams and many others, Perry Canestrari, “the pride of Montreal” tops the list as one of the Canada’s most beloved male singers.
Perry, who sings in multiple languages, “treats singing like an inheritance” and thus, with this passion for the traditions of Italian music and it’s history, has brought forth Perry’s latest release on Stradivari Classics, Love Italian Style: Arrivederci Roma.
Love Italian Style was the creation of label executive, Thomas Gramuglia, of Hindsight Records. Produced by John F. Forbes, this album was carefully crafted to showcase some of the greatest Italian songs of all time.
Perry’s performances are exquisite and masterful. Also included in the repertoire are a couple of great American pop songs delivered by the Montreal Tenor with all of the passion one would expect from such an accomplished artist.

Opening with the lush orchestrations of 'Malafemmena,' that's backed by the sweepingly magnificent 'Arrivederci Roma,' the impassioned 'Il Mondo,' the rousing 'Amore Scusami,' and then we get the simply breathtaking reach and range of 'Caruso.'
Next up is the four minute blend entitled 'Neapolitan Medley: Vicin O Mare / Santa Lucia / Funiculi Funicula,' which is followed by Canestrari's low key take on Sinatra's 'My Way,' then we get one of my own personal favorites here, the pronounced vocal expertise of 'O Sole Mio' (which was actually made famous by Elvis Presley in his version of 'It’s Now or Never.')
Then we get another stand out, in my humble opinion, the melodic hipsway of 'Perdere L’amore,' then the one-two shuffle of Domenico Modugno's 'Volare,' rounding out with free flowing deliciousness of Andy Williams' '(Where Do I Begin?) Love Story,' closing on the six minute blend of 'Opera Medley: Nessun Dorma / La Donna é Mobile / Ave Maria.'
