The Jason Gould Album

His parents met doing a musical on Broadway so the chances are he could sing. I'm liking the preview a lot. Too bad he started at 46. New album out Oct 9th and going to be competing with Mama's "Release Me". Must be tough to sing in her shadow.

The boy can sing. He should have gone public a hell of a lot earlier in life.

What's he been waiting for?

by Anonymousreply 109/27/2012

He's almost 50 years old now? Wow.

by Anonymousreply 209/27/2012

I'm impressed. I am not wild about the arrangements but they are better than the overblown ones on his mom's Bergman album.

Love his hot Jewish looks.

I want to see him and Lizha sitting on high stools with pin spots on their faces chatting about Mamas and singing duets.

by Anonymousreply 409/27/2012

I don't mean to sound bitchy because Jason Gould seems like a perfectly nice guy, but has he ever worked a day in his life? He's never seemed to do much of anything, as far as I can recall. At least he's not a pretentious douchebag like Sean Lennon.

Josh Groban 2.0?

by Anonymousreply 609/27/2012

Mama said on "Katie" she only heard him sing for the first time, very recently and was amazed and encouraged him. She was getting verklempt talking about it and he will be duetting with her on her next album after "Release Me" and will sing at her big Brooklyn Concert.

Is his HIV under control? I'm glad to see that he's achieving professional success.

He was very cute when he was young, but like so many Jewish men his features have coarsened into homeliness now he's in his 40s.

I clicked on the link, all prepared to laugh.

But he sings beautifully.

The songs and arrangements, on the other hand, are dreadful.

Musical junk food for fraus and old queens.

sounds too much like Josh Groban. And he can't write, but neither can his mom.

there's a lot of good, interesting potential there. he's definitely his mother's son in terms of his phrasing and musicianship. interesting that it has taken him this long to own up to the fact that he can sing.

by Anonymousreply 1909/28/2012

He truly has a beautiful voice. The arrangements sampled at OP's link are pure pop easy listening almost like 1970's style or something.

He needs a Peter Matz.

I don't like him at all, histrionic and overwrought just like mama.

by Anonymousreply 2409/28/2012

Actually his Mom has written about a dozen or so songs over the years- some quite good (Evergreen is not one of my favorites.) I like Premier Chanson quite a lot though.

By the way, her new CD with stuff from her vaults is quite something. Great stuff. Great great singer.

Good luck to Jason. A really nice fellow from what I can tell. Briefly met him at a Toys for Tots party in the mid 90s in NYC- samll talk around mutual friends. Small, cute, shy, nice. Not in million years (if you did not know) would you suspect the fellow's mother was one of the biggest entertainers/icons or most famous celebities in the world- not to mention wealthy. I thought that spoke pretty well for him.

by Anonymousreply 2509/28/2012

Jason appears to have a good amount of talent as is evident on the few projects we've seen heard him. I thought he was very good as the son in Barbra's movie, Prince of Tides."

But he hasn't seemed to pursue anything so long enough to sustain much of a career in the entertainment industry.

Barbra has always said she is lazy and doesn't like to work. And even though her appearances are sometimes few and far between, she obviously has worked now for more than 50 years.

Maybe Jason is talented but really is lazy. And while Barbra had to work--at least at the beginning of her career--I guess Jason doesn't have to work, so he just doesn't do much (unless he works at something behind the scenes and we don't know about it).

Damn, he's actually a pretty good singer. Wonder why he waited so long to record his own album.

by Anonymousreply 3310/06/2012

Charlie hits it on the nail about Jason Gould's voice. He has the range and tone of Josh Groben but the soulful phrasing and technique of George Micheal. A great combination!

He should have released an album long time ago, particularly twenty years ago when people appreciated great singing.

by Anonymousreply 3410/06/2012

He's definitely his Aunt Roz's niece.

by Anonymousreply 3510/06/2012

Wow, I'm surprised. Unlike most celebrity spawn, Jason actually has a lot of talent. I wonder what took him so long to start singing. Too bad he didn't do this 20 years ago, as the above poster said. Back then, Chris Isaak and Harry Connick Jr. were mainstream, Jason probably could have ridden that wave.

Someone needs him to write him songs that don't sound like a John Tesh abortion, songs that Michael Bolton would complain had no edge, songs that you only want to listen to while gazing intently as your favorite Thomas Kinkade lithograph, songs that would make Yanni's mother cringe.

During the Clinton era it was reported that Karl Rove put out the rumors about Jason's HIV status to threaten Barbra for her financial and public support for the former President and the Democratic party. He also went after Martha Stewart for the same reason and brought her down through the insider trading scandal.

A bit too frilly and affected - he's a bit breathy. But there is great potential there.

Huge fan of Barbra...but she brays through this.

"How Deep Is The Ocean" is a REALLY creepy choice for a mother/son duet.

Why not "Together, Wherever We Go"? Or "Bob White"?

R52. Thanks for the video. Barbra and Jason are terrific together. But he's in desperate need of a haircut.

Why hasn't he been singing publicly all these years?!

He was fucking Tyson for a couple of years, but Barbra was not supportive. I don't think it had anything to do with race.

by Anonymousreply 6211/29/2012

Of course, I always think about the fact that she didn't accept him when he first came out. Which I've always found infuriating. I never understood her homophobia.

Luckily for her, he was the bigger person and forgave her.

His singing is a little Josh Groban for my taste, and this is a really weird song for them to be singing to each other.

by Anonymousreply 6311/29/2012

R62...Tyson Beckford? I'm having a tough time believing that. Tyson could get a pretty hunky guy, and that's not Jason.

All the male vocalists now sound like Josh Groban, Michael Buble and Harry Connick Jr. All Sinatra imitators and I didn't even like him all that much. I liked Joe Cocker, Chuck Negron, Al Green, Marvin, etc.

by Anonymousreply 6811/30/2012

Of course Groban, Buble' & Connick sound similar to Sinatra to you, because they're singing music similar to what he sang.

There are plenty of male vocalists who sound more like Cocker, Negro, Green and Gaye, but you can't reference them in a discussion about Jason Gould's voice, because the genre is completely different.

by Anonymousreply 6911/30/2012

But my point was, why sing in a style similar to your mom's or Sinatra's when you're not that generation? Sing something with balls, most gay men sing like Gould, breathy or Broadway.

Hello, gorgeous! What an amazing voice! Just wish he could have overcome his fear of singing publicly sooner, though the intimidation he must have felt being the only child of Barbra is certainly understandable.

I wish there wasn't such ageism on this site. It's just like racism and homophobia, people--and just as ugly and wrong.

It may be ugly, but it's not just as ugly. People who experience racism and homophobia can experience it their whole lives, not just in the latter part, as with ageism.

Fuck you R67. You know very well that Aretha and Patti, not to mention Gladys, Whitney, Anita, Regina, Phyllis and many others, can wipe the floor with your beloved Barbara. BS is incredibly over rated as a singer for one reason only. She's white. If BS was black her career would have lasted one or two albums only with her "voice".

He's pushing 50 years old. Do you want him to come out in leather pants and embarrass himself like Steven Tyler dos today?

[quote]who says she didn't accept him when he came out? I never heard that.

Yeah never heard it either, she has always been very protective of him, and clearly adores him, Stop reading the unauthorized biographies and Enquirer.

Although some of you may not care for his style, he is unquestionably a gifted singer. I'm a singer, and I only wish I had that much color in my voice and his musicianship. Those of you who are saying he 'can't sing' don't know what the fuck singing is.
