 “A vocalist of exceptionable range and colour, an astonishingly varied musical background, this is a much anticipated first recording.’

Toronto-based LAWRENCE COTTON is a classically trained singer and actor who received his performer’s union cards at a young age. Growing up in a family of musicians and music educators, he first heard jazz resounding from the big hi-fi in the family living room: his father’s extensive collection of jazz LPs was on constant rotation. The music of Glenn Miller, Jack Teagarden and many others made a deep and lasting impression, and Lawrence has now turned his attention to jazz standards to share his love of them with the world. Sounding more like the jazz crooners of a bygone age he combines his warm, vintage tone with the storytelling abilities of the award-winning actor and director that he is. This CD features a broad range of tunes in new and inventive arrangements
