Synopsis

Product Description
Featuring Harold Danko, Ray Drummond, Greg Bandy, Vic Juris and Vincent Herring, vocalist Gates presents a set of classics highlighted by his own lyrics and those of King Pleasure, Eddie Jefferson and Cole Porter.''Gates continues to cement his place in the tight coterie of 'main men' of jazz singing. Indeed, he is a standout member of an endangered species. His inventive manifestations reveal his mastery of this niche art form. Not only is he a natural talent, Gates is gifted with the temperament of a purist and a skilled craftsman of a high musical intelligence. Little wonder for the past 8 years his performances have recruited rabid audiences of many stripes.'' - Herb Wong, past-president IAJE.

"I first heard Giacomo on Jazz with Bob Parlocha. His voice was so smooth and elegant that I decided to purchase this CD. One of the best vocal purchases I have made in 10 years. His phrasing and melodically rich voice is an instrument. It blends with the other instruments to therapeutically message and feed the hunger within for quality jazz. You can't go wrong with this one!"
