Personal Quote:

Above all, I'm a jazz singer who likes to mess with the melody. I sing the songs that touch me in the heart, the songs I would like to sing to someone in front of a roaring fire...But don't get me wrong. We don't live in a fantasy world, though we all have one. (from an interview with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette in 1997)


Boasted a more than 50-year career in music, beginning back in the 1950s while he was on Decca Records. See more »
