Jazz crooner Curtis Stigers is on a press tour to Germany and the U.K. to advance his new album "Let's Go Out Tonight" on Concord Records. No word yet on an exact release date.
Stigers worked with Grammy-winning producer Larry Kline on this collection of covers. He performs a broad swath of songs various artists, icluding Bob Dylan, Neil Finn and David Poe, who also sings on the album. It's got a very different sound for Stigers. It's still in the jazz vein, but his renditions draw strong influences from pop, folk, blues and old-school R&B.
Stigers appeared on BBC TV today and sang an excerpt of Poe's "Everyone Loves Lovers," which Poe wrote for Stigers.
