Derek Menchan pays beautiful homage to timeless classics on new album
(Published: January 18, 2019)

For fresh renditions of classic tunes, The Griot Swings the Classics is definitely going to hit the sweet spot for you. Derek Menchan is a talented producer, multi-instrumentalist, and vocalist with a passion for urban, jazz, and R&B. Together with his talented band, he set out to breathe new life into some beloved tracks from the American Negro collection and timeless jazz standards, giving them a unique personality and strong sense of aesthetics.

The album, which is also currently available on Spotify, features eight groundbreaking renditions of beloved tracks such as "Fly Me To The Moon" and "Take My Hand Precious Lord," only to mention but a few.

Menchan's music is absolutely astonishing as a stunning combination of charming melodies and warm arrangements. On "Since Jesus Came Into My Heart," he unites technical precision with a sense of honesty that's hard to match in the music scene today. On his beautiful rendition of "Girl from Ipanema," he channels some of the best grooves on this effort.
