"Gates is one of the most extraordinary singers working in jazz today, the owner of a joyful baritone who has synthesized a host of influences—Eddie Jefferson, Jon Hendricks and Sinatra among them—and turned them into something uniquely his own."
L.A. Daily News

Vocalist and Wesleyan Private Lessons Teacher Giacomo Gates, winner of DownBeat's 2012 Critics Poll for “Rising Star Male Vocalist,” performs tunes from the Great American Songbook, along with jazz, blues, vocalese, and some historical, humorous, and esoteric material, accompanied by guitarist and Wesleyan Private Lessons Teacher Tony Lombardozzi and bassist Jeff Fuller.
