Rock n roll and jazz share so many of the same artistic bloodlines that its remarkable the two dont fuse more often into the kind of inspired marriage of visceral clout and intellectual savvy conjured by the singer, songwriter and saxophonist Curtis Stigers. The New York TimesDiscovered by legendary record executive Clive Davis, vocalist, songwriter, and saxophonist Curtis Stigers debut album sold over 1.5 million copies worldwide on the strength of self-penned hit singles like I Wonder Why, Youre All That Matters to Me, and Never Saw a Miracle. A year later, Stigers cover of Nick Lowes (Whats So Funny Bout) Peace Love and Understanding for The Bodyguard Soundtrack sold over 40 million copies worldwide. Further collaborations with Carole King, Al Green, Shawn Colvin, Eric Clapton, Elton John, Bonnie Raitt, and Rod Stewart as well as multiple appearances on The Tonight Show, David Letterman, The Today Show, etc. put Stigers directly in the spotlight of popular culture. With One More for the Road, and Hooray For Love, his latest releases for the Concord Jazz label, Stigers continues to fulfill a promise made to a younger version of himself: a commitment to artistic growth, and to bringing new tunes to the Great American Songbook.
