"It's My Turn" by Joe Escobar Quartet "Jazz Artist from California)

Take a trip down memory lane with Joe Escobar as he spins a fantastic nostalgic throwback to the days of yesteryear with superb classic Jazz standards on his newly released album, "It's My Turn." Sit back and enjoy the classic songs on this CD as they are performed by highly talented musicians who interlace these tunes with spectacular expertise. The caliber of Escobar's voice is not only strong and polished but he has a definite style and grace that gives these tunes a fresh quality. Kicking off the album, "Summer Wind," is smooth Jazz at its best as Escobar croons with suave and debonair style. Another great song, "The Way You Look Tonight," is smooth flowing with an added pizzazz of the trombone. The crisp piano complements the laid back vocals on the wonderful song, "Beyond the Sea." If you like Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, or Bobby Darin, then you will truly appreciate the delectable Jazz standards on the fabulous album, "It's My Turn."
