LJ FOLKhas worn a lot of hats in the music business over the past 30 years, but the one his audiences have come to love best is the one labelled “Singer”.
His award-winning tone, and silky leads breathe new life into well-known songs, and his jazz arrangements of songs from the 60’s and 70’s offer a delightful revisit to the music of the time. His voice has been described as “sheer perfection” (Lesley Mitchell-Clark, WholeNote Magazine).
His 2014 CD, Parking for Meatballs, has been referred to as “the finest Jazz vocal recording of the year” and Cadence Magazine rates it “highly recommended”.
His new recording, “Near Me,” is a collection of standards, originals and covers, the highlight of which is a duet between LJ and Canada’s jazz vocalist jewel, Emilie-Claire Barlow.
This evening’s singing star LJ FOLKfeatures STU HARRISONon piano, BRIAN LEGEREon drums, and PAT COLLINSon bass, entertaining in the up-close-and-personal ambience of the Home Smith Bar.
