Jazz vocalist Steve Lipman injects timeless standards with blue-eyed soul on new release
(Published: August 28, 2013)

Meet the new Frank Sinatra. Such a claim may seem like hyperbole; however, there is no description more apt in summarizing jazz singer Steve Lipman.

In his 50s but with only two albums to his credit, Lipman echoes the blue-eyed soul of the Chairman of the Board himself without attempting to clone him. After all, it'd be nearly impossible to perfectly duplicate the moonlit beauty of Sinatra's croon. Nevertheless, Lipman captures the boisterous energy and emotional uplift of Sinatra in his prime.

On his latest effort, Ridin' the Beat, Lipman rips through the catalog of the all-time greats - George Gershwin, Johnny Mercer, Cole Porter, among others - and lets his soaring voice elevate them back to life. Lipman's vibrant performance on "The Song Is You" is perfectly reflected by the lively piano. "Teach Me Tonight" reveals Lipman's romanticism with swoon-worthy singing. "The Gal That Got Away" showcases some of Lipman's most soulful vocal work.

Some may call the album as a throwback; indeed, Lipman's style and choice of material is steeped in nostalgia, music that he was most likely raised on. But the timeless appeal of these recordings is indisputable, especially since Lipman covers them with such infectious enthusiasm.
