This is Ken Slavin's fifth professional recording in a career spanning nearly 25 years - and the first time one of his shows has been captured "live." It was recorded at his New York City singing debut on Halloween NIght, October 31, 2013, at the world-famous Metropolitan Room in Manhattan.
Long-time fans and first-time listeners alike often compare Ken's sound to a younger Tony Bennett, Johnny Hartman, Joe Williams or Mel Torme. One music critic dubbed him "Mr. Tuxedo Voice." Texas Monthly says he's one of the "Swing Set." In reality, his voice, persona and performance style are unique and place him in a category all his own.
His classy and fresh approach to the Great American Songbook and timeless jazz standards has earned him the moniker of "Jazz Crooner Extraordinaire" and the honor of opening for such varied jazz legends as The Four Freshmen, Eddie Palmieri, Savid Sanborn, Dee Dee Bridgewater and Chico Hamilton, performing in concert with the internationally acclaimed Jim Cullum Jazz Band, and giving private performances for Grammy Award winning pop stars Helen Reddy and Vikki Carr. He sings throughout the United States and has hopes of going on tour in the near future.
Ken's recordings have been heard and purchased around the world, thanks to the Internet Age. He has been featured on many top-rated radio programs, including "Late Nights with Joann Goode" on BBC Radio's London flagship station, where he recently was invited to appear in person for a 30-minute interview and salute to his music. Stations in such faraway locales as Peru, Italy, France, Poland, Alaska, the Philippines and Brazil have him on their playlists - and he receives emails and letters from fans across the globe.
If you enjoy good melodies, beautiful lyrics, a sense of romance and sophistication - and a thoroughly relaxing-yet-uplifting listening experience, you will love Ken Slavin: Jazz Crooner Extraordinaire!
