MUSICIAN Born:

Roger Cairns

Roger Cairns started singing at a very early age and hasn’t stopped since. He sang at his aunt’s wedding when he was three years old. He sang in the church choir. Every year, he sang at the local residents association Christmas party. He sang at school and was 12 when he was awarded the Robert Burns Prize for excellence in the singing of Scottish songs. That’s what Roger knew, that’s what he loved, and that’s what he decided he was going to do when he turned 9: he was going to become a singer. Flash forward 50 years and Roger is in Los Angeles, California, singing with a 20-piece jazz orchestra

Doug Ferony: It Had To Be You: The Lovers CD

Read "It Had To Be You: The Lovers CD" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Vocalist Doug Ferony belongs in the same company as Roger Cairns and Tom Culver. These are durable male vocalists, conservative in their performance and interpretation approach, with distinctive voices in their own right. They are modern keepers-of-the-flame out of the Frank Sinatra/Tony Bennett tradition. Jazz singers? Maybe. Song Stylists? Absolutely. Ferony has made a career singing ...

Tom Culver: Tom Culver Sings Johnny Mercer: I Remember You

Read "Tom Culver Sings Johnny Mercer: I Remember You" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Singer Tom Culver pays special tribute to Mercer with I Remember You, a sporting collection of Mercer's finest that include “Day In, Day Out," “Skylark," “Moon River," and the title cut. Culver is a vocalist cut from ...

Roger Cairns: Let's...

Read "Let's..." reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

On the heels of his recently released The Dream of Olwen (Self Produced, 2010), it is worth considering Roger Cairns' previous recording, Let's..., which was a nice evolution from his first American release, A Scot in LA (Self Produced, 2006).

Roger Cairns: A Scot in LA

Read "A Scot in LA" reviewed by Michael P. Gladstone

Without knowing if the title of A Scot In LA is an intentional play on words on Sting's “An Englishman in New York," I rather like this album and must credit Roger Cairns for his vocal style as well as the majority of the selected tunes. The liner information tell us that as a ...

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
