JAZZ SPECTRUM vocal quartet +
This is an energetic, jazz influenced vocal quartet backed by 5 swinging musicians. From lush
ballads to hip renditions of big band music...from good-time 50's R & R and Doo Wop to
lightening fast vocalese lyrics, Jazz Spectrum lays down a dazzling performance of rich
harmonies and tight ensemble work.
They salute their predecessors with updated versions of hits made famous by the fabulous
vocal groups of the 40's like The Modernairs, King Sisters and Pied Pipers plus those 50's
groups like The Four Freshmen and Four Aces as well as The Manhattan Transfer. Lambert,
Hendricks and Ross of the late 50's is also a favorite.
All arrangements are written be Bob Zaun, leader, including his vocalese lyrics in the style of
Jon Hendricks, the poet laureate of jazz!
