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!

Bob Dorough, 90, Is Still Hip

Bob Dorough at Jazz@Kitano, August 2014One goes to hear a 90-year-old jazz artist willing to make a few allowances. In the case of bebop singer/pianist/songwriter Bob Dorough, however, no allowances are necessary, as he proved in his Aug. 16 engagement at Jazz at Kitano. You can read my rave here.
