8/14/14 – Jesse Junior, vocalist with the Heart of Carolina Jazz Orchestra
At Depot Park, Sanford 7pm (free admission) 226 Carthage St. Sanford, NC (rain site is the First Presbyterian Church – 203 Hawkins Ave)
A Milwaukee native, NYC expatriate, and now self-described “Asheville Jazzvillian”, singer Jesse Earl Junior is steeped in the Original American Art Form.
“Of all the vocalists in WNC, Jesse Junior is my favorite. He’s nothing but class. Jesse’s vocal delivery and that rich bass/baritone voice are a wonderful reminder of the great singers from the 40’s & 50’s, such as Johnny Hartman, Billy Eckstine, Nat King Cole, Bob Eberly and Dick Haymes. He sings to his audience like he’s singing to you and only you.” Vocalist/drummer Russ Wilson
