About this show

Mark Murphy is one of the world's greatest -- and hippest -- jazz vocalists performing today, a six-time Grammy nominee and 1996, 1997, 2000 & 2001 Downbeat Readers' Poll Winner For Best Male Jazz Singer Of The Year. Acclaimed for his sure and swinging time, his musical and ever-inventive phrasing, his masterful scats and his daring, innovative vocalese, Originally discovered by Sammy Davis Jr, Murphy achieved fame in the 1960s for his crisp tone, and for his ability to incorporate avant-garde developments in both literature and instrumental jazz. Thanks to his familiarity with the work of his contemporaries, the Beat Generation writers, Murphy's music continues to provide sharp insight; and his risk-taking artistic bravura is regularly cited by younger singers as a major inspiration for their own work. In addition to his prolific solo recordings, Murphy tours as a member of the all-star group Four Brothers with Jon Hendricks, Kurt Elling and Kevin Mahogony.
