These Cats Can Sing!

These cats sing their asses off! I’ll be telling their story in an article to be posted shortly at DownBeat.com.  The new album, The Royal Bopsters Project features guest appearances by vocal jazz legends Jon Hendricks, Annie Ross (two-thirds of Lambert, Hendricks & Ross), Mark Murphy, Sheila Jordan and Bob Dorough. Can’t wait to hear them live at Birdland this week!
