With a unique sound that seamlessly blends jazz with elements of pop and R&B, there is something for every music fan to love about vocalist DENISE LESLIE. The effervescent singer released her stellar recording One Fine Morning in January and has not come off a cloud since.
With infectious grooves and fresh jazz arrangements, One Fine Morning features well-crafted renditions of cherished pop songs from the 1970s including hits from Lighthouse, Van Morrison, Maria Muldaur, George Benson, and The Police. The new recording offers a fresh sound that is hip, innovative, and familiar all at once. Showcasing Leslie‘s impressive vocal range and dynamic phrasing, One Fine Morning is an album not to be missed. Joining DENISE LESLIE at the Home Smith Bar will be award winning producer/guitarist on the album, BOB McALPINE, celebrated bassist PAT COLLINS, and outstanding drummer PAUL DeLONG.
