Jamie Davis

Primary Instrument: Vocalist

Jamie Davis holds a position amongst the pantheon of great male vocalists with a full deep baritone voice that has been paired with some of the world’s most famous talent. Davis counts Patty Austin, Tony Bennett, George Benson, the Count Basie Orchestra, Rosemary Clooney, Jimmy Cobbs, and Billy Cobham.

Davis was named the “chocolate baritone” by Sir Michael Parkinson, the BBC’s arbiter of important international Jazz, after his 2007 performance in London with the BBC’s sixty-four piece orchestra. Last year’s schedule included the Chetlenham Festival, the Jerry Lewis Telethon in Las Vegas and tours at home and abroad. Davis also performs regularly for both public and private events in United States and Europe....

Those who love their vocal jazz low and smooth will enjoy the richness of Vibe Over Perfection, the new album from Jamie Davis. Davis has been a singer for years and will appeal to fans of Joe Williams and Lou Rawls. While many have been compared to those two, it's another thing to take jazz standards and truly make them sound new. This is exactly what he does with new versions of Lionel Richie's “Hello”, Rawls' “You'll Never Find Another Love Like Mine”, and the classic “The Look Of Love”. Even “Nature Boy”, which has been covered countless times over the years, gets a bit of a new awakening here.

The album was beautifully produced by Greg Errico, the name of which should be familiar to Sly & The Family Stone fans. He has done a number of productions in the past and his work here shows the kind of ear he has to make these recordings sound fantastic.
