With over ten recordings as a leader and vocalist… businessman / educator Kevin Mahogany has been the standard setter for jazz vocalists for three decades.
His broad baritone was forged in his hometown: the legendary jazz metropolis known as Kansas City;
where he learned to swing like Charlie Parker, shout the blues like Big Joe Turner, and cry a ballad like Lester Young. All the while, extending, elaborating and refining the jazz vocal legacies of Lambert, Hendricks & Ross, Eddie Jefferson and Al Jarreau into an appealing creation of his own.
– from Gutbucket, the Great American Songbook, and Gospel, to Mingus and Motown!
