Jump For Joy
Jump for Joy marks yet another satisfying stop along Ernie Andrews' long, soulful journey through the American songbook. There are a few good male vocalists in jazz today, but none of them does what Ernie Andrews can do. Ernie has the ability to infuse even classic love songs with the spirit of the blues creating a middle ground, so to speak, where Cole Porter meets King Pleasure. Accompanied by his long-time friend and colleague Houston Person and his regular pianist Aaron Graves, Ernie delivers the goods with tunes by Duke Ellington, Rodgers & Hart, Percy Mayfield and others. After one listen, you'll agree -- Ernie Andrews is one of the most unique vocal stylists in jazz today.
