Upcoming Gigs and new CD!
“Next Time You See Me”
with the Dave Stryker Organ Trio
(Recorded in Belo Horizonte Brazil)
In February 1993, Kevin Debut album ” Double Rainbow” hit the record stores.
Its seldom-heard ballads, bop tunes and blues were met with instant acclaim. He recorded three more well received records — ” Songs and Moments”, ” You Got What It Takes”, and ” Pussy Cat Dues”– with the independent German record label ” Enja”.In 1995 Kevin joined with Warner Brothers and the next year released the self -titled CD,” Kevin Mahogany”. “Another Time, Another Place”, My Romance, and ” Portrait of Kevin Mahogany” closed out the next three years of Kevin at Warner Brothers.
After a short hiatus, Kevin returned to the scene in 2002 with Telarc records and released “Pride and Joy” , a tribute to the music of the great Motown era. The shaping of these tunes became very important to Kevin.” When you listen to the artist that we respect and call the masters of jazz, they were doing the same thing, performing the music of their youth.” Kevin continued,” I want to do the same, and continue the tradition.”
With eleven CD’s as a leader, and quite a few as a sideman, Kevin has proved to be the quintessential jazz vocalist. Newsweek describes him as ” the standout jazz vocalist of his generation.” New Yorker magazine writer Whitney Balliet writes, “There is little Mahogany cannot do.” Says the LA TIMES, ” Mahogany is one of the first truly gifted male vocalists to emerge in years.”
Kevin’s latest CD is “Next Time You See Me” on Mahogany Music which features him with his long-time musical partner Dave Stryker and his Organ Trio.
