The Dutch Muziekkrant Oor, the Netherlands equivalent to Rolling Stone, praised the album by saying, “It contains sophisticated pop, blue eyed soul and crossover jazz, reminiscent of the work of Michael Franks, Steely Dan and Ben Sidran. In spite of his dreamy romanticism, Bernard Oattes has both feet firmly on the ground. This is evident from his romantic vocal performance, while showing a well defined evniromental consciousness in his lyrics. Frame By Frame is a sympathetic solo debut, with an international potential that should not be underestimated.” It was released in the U.S. in August, 1992 and was widely accepted by NAX/AA Radio. Ultimately, the album made it into the Top 5 of R&R, Gavin and the Mac Report.
Soul Detective is the eagerly awaited second album by Bernard Oattes. The album features Peter White on guitar and Richard Elliot on saxophone. Bernard has been working in Holland for the last few years and this album is sure to be another radio chart topper. Soul Detective captures the smooth and sexy sounds that distinguish Bernard from other male vocalists. It is a mixure of sophisticated adult music, blue-eyed soul and smooth contemporary jazz.
