Andrew Farstar revamps Carpenters classic with fresh jazz rendition
(Published: August 07, 2019)

Andrew Farstar's fresh new cover of "Top of the World" bridges the divide between an old-school classic sound and contemporary jazz.

The artist's vocal performance is expressive and moving, perfectly painting a picture with his stunning voice. "Top of the World" is a sentimental and endearing love song, and Farstar performs it with a charged authenticity.  

Farstar's vocals recall the likes of classic jazz artists such as Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, and Chet Baker, to mention but a few. However, the modern production aesthetic bears a striking similarity to new jazz singers such as Michael Bublé. 

The original tune, first recorded in the early '70s by the Carpenters, had a bright country vibe in the recording. Here, Farstar takes the piece in a brand new direction, performing the number with a pure jazz approach. It's a fresh take on a classic song and one that you'll find yourself listening to again and again.
