Mark Robinson

Jazz singer Mark Robinson draws his major inspiration from the Great American Songbook, and lovers of jazz and cabaret singing are drawing inspiration from Robinson's recently released CD, Some Small Dive.

As Dan McClenaghan from All About Jazz put it, “Like the very best in this game -- Sinatra or Tony Bennett -- Robinson makes it all sound so effortless on this truly superb vocal jazz outing.”

Given such praise, Robinson's appeal to live audiences isn't hard to understand. His style is elegant and refined, but always swinging. And as he works his way through the jazz standards of composers like Cole Porter and Rodgers & Hart, and new classics from writers like Elvis Costello and Dave Frishberg, Robinson's delivery is both emotionally direct and musically sophisticated. He's cool, all right, but his music, at the same time, is fun and alive.
