When the discussion turns to his singing and his raw act of creation, Freddy Cole is virtually beyond reproach. The first in a series of recordings to appear on HighNote which will be recorded Live at Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola, New York's jazz headquarters, Freddy and his colleagues offer a program of great songs free from any trace of the routine. Mellow and loving throughout, Freddy's rich, autumnal baritone gives a master class in communication through song. If you haven't had the good fortune to experience Freddy Cole in concert then this is the disc for you: one of the world's finest vocalists in the world's most prestigious jazz venue.
