At first, I thought it was Chet Baker doing "I,ve never been in love before" and settled in to listen to one of my favorites. Soon, however, some things sounded differently, and when the flute solo came on, I knew that something else was happening. No, not Chet, but a guy named Joseph Leo Bwarie, lead singer of the Jersey Boys.
So, as I figure, anybody who could do Chrt Baker like that must be something else. And I find, now, that he is.
Jazz singers,in this day and age,are hard to find and one who can do Chet like that are priceless. I will follow his career and hope to see him in person if he appears either in florida or the Chicago area.
