When you think of cool rhythms and velvet tones from a man on stage in a well cut suit you might be forgiven for thinking of Frank Sinatra or Tony Bennett, but this time it's none other than Australia's very own Gregg Arthur, interpreting in his own way the classic songs from the Great American Songbook. Areas of speciality include Jazz Artists. Gregg’s recordings evoke an era of elegance and style, a time when the music was performed with phrasing that emphasized the storytelling behind these songs. The Great American Songbook is a collection of music, which was written for singers with technique – power doesn’t suit these tunes, they require nuance, which Gregg Arthur delivers in spades.
