Tom Culver Sings Johnny Mercer - "I Remember You"
Los Angeles based Jazz singer Tom Culver presents a program of all Johnny Mercer tunes on his new CD for Rhombus Records, I Remember You.
All the songs featured were written or co-written by Johnny Mercer.
Some of the very best Musicians in Los Angeles are featured on I Remember You,
including: Karen Hernandez–piano, Rick Hils–Piano, Ricky Woodard–Sax, Jack La
Compte–Drums, Nolan Shaheed–Trumpet, Jim Jedikin–Sax/Flute, Lou Shoch–Bass,
Don Littleton–Congas, Garryck King–Drums, Tom Bethke–Guitar, and Geoff Nudel–Sax.
Tom Culver calls I Remember You the "Gone With The Wind of CDs. They had to put a
restraining order on me or I'd still be in the studio. It's very hard to put the brakes on
when recording Mercer and his brilliant co-writers".
His boy-next-door vocal performance has a lot in common with the unique grit found in Tony Bennett's timbre. - L.A. Jazz Scene
