MUSIC REVIEW BY Jim Newsom, Portfolio Weekly

VIEW THE CD DETAIL PAGE

Origin Records is a Seattle-based boutique label founded by drummer John Bishop. Though Bishop's stated intent was to spotlight jazz artists of the Pacific Northwest, it's Connecticut-based vocalist Giacomo Gates that caught my ear with his recent Origin CD, Centerpiece. Gates is a soulful singer whose range is reminiscent of Kevin Mahogany and Johnny Hartman, and this disc swings like few others these days. You'll recognize most of the songs, but Gates has a knack for making each one sound new while conjuring up a very hip, 1950s west coast feel.
