Danny Freyer cd Release Party at Upstairs At Vitellos
“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 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.
The CD, Must Be Love, features Danny Freyer’s new lyrics to Charlie Parker’s Yardbird Suite and a vocalese lyric to Parker’s solo, Danny’s original compositions including Must Be Love, Or Else I’m Drunk, and jazz standards. The late and legendary jazz pianist, Paul T. Smith (1922-2013), accompanist to Ella Fitzgerald, Mel Tormé, Bing Crosby, Anita O’day, mentored Freyer on his arrangements and performance of the songs on the CD, which was produced by Evan Stone.
Upstairs At Vitellos, 4349 Tujunga Ave.
