New Album From Vocalist Andy Bey to Drop Oct. 30

Since Andy Bey returned to recording in 1996-after more than a two-decade absence-the vocalist has made a name for himself by constantly reinventing the Great American Songbook. Bey continues in this vein with his latest album, Ain’t Necessarily So, scheduled for release Oct. 30 by 12th Street Records.

Ain’t Necessarily So, the fifth album Bey has recorded with producer Herb Jordan, is Bey’s first release since 2004. The album was recorded at Birdland in May 1997, during Bey’s first headlining performance at the New York City club.
