Andy Bey's silky baritone has become one of the finest instruments in jazz, resonating through decades of American standards. A lyrical storyteller, he possesses "a film noir voice: languid, mysterious, and surpassingly beautiful" (The New York Times
). He emerged as a jazz artist at age 12, performing alongside such icons as Sarah Vaughan, Dinah Washington, and Horace Silver. After receiving acclaim for his 2005 Grammy Award–nominated album American Song
, he returns to perform music from his new October 2007 CD Ain't Necessarily So
(12th Street Records), featuring songs from the Great American Songbook (George and Ira Gershwin; Jerome Kern; and others).
