John Proulx - Moon And Sand
The jazz scene is abuzz about singer, pianist, composer, and recording artist, John Proulx (pronounced "Proo"). His piano playing is hot and swinging, and his voice recalls the smooth, mellow sounds of a young Chet Baker. It features Chuck Berghofer, Joe LaBarbera, Larry Koonse, Bob Sheppard, a duet with Melissa Manchester, and three string quartet arrangements by Alan Broadbent. John’s previous three albums on MAXJAZZ, “The Best Thing For You”, "Baker’s Dozen-Remembering Chet Baker”, and “Moon and Sand”, have garnered national and international acclaim, and John’s fan base is quickly growing. In addition to touring with his own trio, John has performed with the likes of Anita O'Day, Natalie Cole, Melissa Manchester, and Marian McPartland.
