As a young person on the cusp of running away success a number years before, Peter Cincotti was previously chafing next to the expectations laid broad at their door. A precociously skilled pianist who started doing in nightclubs of New York at 12, he came out at the turn of the century as a twofold threat, understanding the standards of American Songbook and crooning originals jazz-inflected of his own.
At the time their eponymous 2003 presentation album for Concord completed them the youngest performer ever to top the traditional jazz charts Billboard, Cincotti was extensively hailed as a natural descendant to crossover throne of Harry Connick Jr.
With their clean-cut wonderful looks and genial but earnest stage attendance, he looked ideally equipped to set up a new age to the pop vocal classic-jazz-infused style of Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett and Nat "King" Cole, except that Cincotti was not paying attention in the gig. Their intention as a performer is very clears, to express and develop myself in the honest and natural way, in short after the make public of his first album. It is not like they are out there keeping a try to reach young age people and initiate them to this type of music. In case they come to the show. The intention is to be performing music and to be evolving and changing, whoever the viewers are."
Contagious up with them later a decade, it is amazing just how directly he is hewn to their teenage ambitions, though their development has mostly taken position outside the observation of West Coast viewers.
