Jazz baritone Giacomo Gates is a tradition-minded singer whose reputation as a vocalese master is well deserved. Gates lived and worked in Alaska from the 1970s until 1998, but, in spite of a late start, he is making up for lost time in the jazz world with a number of impressive albums and growing critical acclaim. The Hartford Courant says, “Giacomo Gates, jazz troubadour, worldly wise and grand master of scat and Vocalese, is one of the jazz world’s finest living exemplars of true grit,” while the Newark Star-Ledger adds that he “combines the mellow conversational elegance of a crooner, with the hipster outlook of a bebop scat and Vocalese singer.”
