The album includes a collection of classical pieces, standards, and ballads written by several writers such as Gabriel Fauré, Johnny Mandel, Johnny Mercer, Ogden Nash, Kurt Weill, Bruno Brighetti, Bruno Martino, Maurice Ravel, George Gershwin, Ira Gershwin, DuBose Heyward, Marty Panzer, Ástor Piazzolla, Charlie Chaplin, Geoffrey Parsons, James Phillips, Sammy Cahn, Jimmy Van Heusen, Otto Harbach, Jerome Kern, Alan Bergman, Marilyn Bergman, Michel Legrand and Cole Porter. Sandoval originally wanted to record and release the album by himself, until pianist [1 ] Shelly Berg brought him to Gregg Field, of Concord Records, who brought in Grammy Award-winning arranger Jorge Calandrelli. They co-produced while Calandrelli arranged eight of the nine string charts, Berg arranged the rest and brought in his trio to back up Sandoval. Sandoval mentioned that his two greatest inspirations for this album were trumpeter Bobby Hackett's playing with the Jackie Gleason Orchestra, and the album . Clifford Brown with Strings [2 ]
Reception [ edit ]
The critical reception for the album has been extremely positive. Dan Oullette of
named the album "a gem" and the zenith of Sandoval's 20-plus-year recording career. He also praised the performer's expanded repertoire, especially for the selection of the songs "Oblivion", with the collaboration from Monica Mancini, and " Billboard magazine Pavane Pour une Infante Défunte", with Chris Botti. While reviewing the album, Thom Jurek of [3 ] Allmusic said: "It's tempting to call A Time for Love Sandoval's masterpiece, but that is based on the sharp contrast with virtually everything else in his catalog; only time will reveal whether or not it is." Jurek also pointed out the emotional depth of the performer, and also named "stellar" the collaborations with Kenny Barron and Shelly Berg. At the [2 ] 11th Latin Grammy Awards, the album earned the accolade for Best Instrumental Album and won Jorge Calandrelli and Gregg Field the award for Producer of the Year. [4 ] [5 ] A Time for Love also received a nomination for Best Engineered Album, for Gregg Field and Don Murray (engineers), and Michael Bishop (mastering engineer). [5 ]
