Swami Iyer Sings Ballads, Blues and Bebop
Indian-born vocalist Swami Iyer found himself forever hooked on jazz upon hearing his first Louis Armstrong record. A warm, supple, and expressive baritone, Swami gets to the heart of each song in his lighthearted and engaging performances. His rich repertoire includes New Orleans R&B, blues, bebop, and contemporary jazz. Expect fresh takes on Duke Ellington classics, down-home Bessie Smith blues, and the irresistible funk of Professor Longhair and much more. Swami will be accompanied by an exceptional rhythm section led by pianist Lee Bloom.
