Music You Don't Know You Like Yet


Lost in Dreams


Curtis Stigers has labored in obscurity for most of his career, lauded by a core group of vocal jazz lovers drawn to his kinda-Tom-Waits style. Recently, he burst onto the radar screen with and Emmy nomination for his theme song for the FX television series "Sons of Anarchy." Farewell, obscurity. This set has Stigers, a fine saxophonist as well as vocalist, moving back and forth between standards such as "My Funny Valentine" and "Bye Bye Blackbird" and new arrangements of songs by Annie Lennox, Roger Waters, John Lennon, Ron Sexsmith and Buddy and Julie Miller. In fact, those reconfigured tunes are the highlights of the bunch, particularly "Dirty Water" by the Millers. 09/10 MJVD J-Contemporary (vocal)
