Entitled "Somethin' Like Love," the CD of jazz-tinged classics will be released exclusively on iTunes March 31. The recording will arrive in stores April 21. Pasquale aligned with acclaimed jazz musician John Pizzarrelli for "Somethin' Like Love." Pizzarelli said in a statement, "Steve has a gift for singing rich, legato lines and has a sound that harks back to another time, while still feeling very much of the present. The result is an intimate performance that's rare for an artist's first solo outing."
Pasquale, who received an Outer Critics Circle nomination for his work in Off-Broadway's A Man of No Importance added, "It's always been a dream of mine to make an old-fashioned jazz record. When we went on hiatus due to the writer's strike, I was afforded the time to finally sit down and do what I had always talked about doing." The complete track listing for "Somethin' Like Love" follows:
In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning
On the Street Where You Live
The Lady's in Love With You
Somethin' Like Love
Count Your Blessings Instead of Sheep
They All Laughed
If I Were a Bell
My Funny Valentine
I Wish I Didn't Love You So
Pasquale will be seen on Broadway later this season in Neil LaBute's reasons to be pretty. His theatrical credits also include Fat Pig, Beautiful Child, A Soldier's Story, Spinning Into Butter, The Light in the Piazza and The Spitfire Grill. Pasquale is married to actress Laura Benanti.
