Accent: 6 Guys, 5 Countries, 1 Vocal Supergroup A "Stealth" Jazz Group, Accent Turns A Cappella Fans On to Jazz Harmony "Accent is the most amazing young vocal group on the planet! Great arrangers and singers, they come up with the most gorgeous harmonies, impeccable swing, grooves, feeling and pitch." - Jorge Calandrelli, Grammy Award-winning composer and arranger In the increasingly popular world of a cappella singing groups, Accent has carved out its own niche. Inspired by the wizardly jazz harmonies of TAKE 6 and, before them, The Hi-Lo's, the six men of Accent, all of them accomplished arrangers and instrumentalists in their own right, decided to take their love of close-harmony jazz singing - the denser and more intricate the better - as far as it could go. Accent is six singer/arrangers, all of whom have considerable musical careers in their home countries: Jean-Baptiste ("JB") Craipeau (France) - tenor 1; Simon Åkesson (Sweden) - tenor 2; Danny Fong (Canada) - tenor 3; Andrew Kesler (Canada) - tenor 4; James Rose (United Kingdom) - baritone; and Evan Sanders (USA) - bass

The annual marathon Yuletide programs rely heavily on the tried and true with an occasional novelty thrown in. Classical purists ...

Accent: In This Together

Read "In This Together" reviewed by Nicholas F. Mondello
