Freddy Cole opened at Birdland last night and BroadwayWorld was there. The New York Times calls Freddy Cole, 'the most maturely expressive male jazz singer of his generation, if not the best alive.' People Magazine praises his 'gorgeous autumnal baritone, expressive phrasing and pitch-perfect feel for jazz standards, pop tunes and love ballads.' Uncle to Natalie Cole, brother of Nat 'King' Cole, pianist and vocalist Freddy Cole doesn't apologize for sounding a little bit like his iconic elder brother. While there are certain unmistakable similarities, many consider his voice to be smokier, jazzier even. Cole's annual visit is the perfect blend of jazz and great American holiday standards. In this engagement tenor saxophonist Houston Person will join Elias Bailey, bass, Randy Napoleon, guitar, and Curtis Boyd, drums. Freddy Cole will appear June 21-25 @ 11 PM (more...)
