Time to give the guys their due. Our Hi-Rotation jazz list for May is all Men.
So, Here they are Ladies and Gents!
THEO BLECKMAN- His encomparable recording called 'Duet for One.' He seems to be singing in 2 separate voices at times. No tricks, no overdubs...just the human instrument.
TONY DEPAOLIS- Hidden away among the many great instrumentals on his release 'The Contemporary Dynamic' bassist Tony DP turns in a lovely, tender vocal on this old undiscovered gem. 'East Side of Heaven.' Take that Bing Crosby.
BOBBY MCFERRIN- A masterly 'Round Midnight' from the film of the same name.
What time is it, Sir?
The other men highly rotating are:
AL JARREAU MICHAEL SCHIEFEL MARK MURPHY BILLY BRANDT
IAN SHAW KURT ELLING FRANK SINATRA TONY BENNETT
STEVIE WONDER GIACOMO GATES RAY CHARLES TAKE 6
So, tune in during jazz hours and get a special treat of the....the music...the joy....the men of jazz singing!
