“Jazz Singer Danny Freyer is a new voice that must be heard”
– Jazz & Blues Critic Willard Manes,

Join singer Danny Freyer to celebrate his jazz CD debut. Described as having at once a classic yet contemporary sound, Freyer brings his rich timbered baritone and original style to song interpretation. “Dean Martin looks and a Sinatra voice,” is a frequent refrain from listeners and dancers at his jazz and big band swing performances. The Party is sure to swing and entertain, from bouncy standards to jazz to New Orleans-infused diversions, to an occasional tearjerker, as musicians from his CD join Danny for the show.

Already getting pre release airplay, the CD, Must Be Love, features such standards as “That Old Black Magic," “Begin the Beguine,” and ”Stardust," as well as Freyer putting his own lyrics to legendary saxophonist Charlie Parker's solo on the classic composition “Yardbird Suite.” Freyer also reveals his songwriting talents with title track “Must Be Love, or Else I’m Drunk,” and the upbeat “Tanked as a Fish, Buzzed Bombed and Blitzed.”

Ella Fitzgerald’s pianist (and accompanist to Mel Tormé, Bing Crosby, Anita O’Day, and Sammy Davis Jr.), Paul T. “Scooby” Smith (1922-2013) mentored Freyer on arrangements and performance for a number of tunes on the CD.

“Freyer shows off his vocal chops to good effect on all ten cuts, impressing with his warmth, sincerity, and musicality,” says jazz critic Willard Manus.
