About

A Dr. Billy Taylor Select Performance
Heavily steeped in the traditions of the original vocal improvisers--from Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald through their modern counterparts Betty Carter and Leon Thomas--"Giacomo Gates is a singer who combines the mellow conversational elegance of a crooner with the hipster outlook of a bebop scat and vocalese singer" (Newark Star-Ledger). Gates's sheer joy, exuberance, wit, and unlimited creativity make him one of the most compelling artists in jazz today.
