Billy C: The Warm Voice of Billy C

Billy C’s brandy-smooth eloquence enriches ballads such as “Lush Life,” “Skylark,” and “Where or When,” as well as Broadway show tunes that are the perfect wine-by-candlelight backdrop. The 19 vocal tracks feature three ensembles: a duo with pianist Chris Anderson; a quartet with Anderson, bassist Victor Sproles and drummer Billy Higgins; and a nonet led by bassist Bill Lee with pianist Stanley Crowell, drummer Sonny Brown, tenor saxophonist George Coleman, baritone saxophonist Charles Davis, and three brass players. First-class all the way.
