About Jack Wood...
Jack Wood, a familiar face on the Southern California jazz scene (as both concert producer and singer), has performed and recorded with many of the finest and best-known jazz musicians in the Los Angeles area.
Since his early days with the Ronnie Brown trio (which included John Clayton on bass and Jeff Hamilton on drums), Jack has devoted himself to performing and recording the great standards. His most important influences have been Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Mel Torme' and Jack Jones.
He is equally at home singing an up-tempo jazz tune, a romantic ballad or a sensual bossa nova. Top musicians who have regularly worked with stars such as Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Nancy Wilson, Natalie Cole and Diana Krall also work with Jack. The players often comment on his impeccable intonation and smooth, clean sound.
Jack has recorded five CDs, the latest being A Time For Love, Baby, Baby, All The Time and Jazz And The Movies. Bill Miller, who played piano for Frank Sinatra for some 40 years, guested with Jack on Jazz And The Movies. John Pisano, who has played guitar for Diana Krall, also played on that CD. Jack has recently recorded more great standards with a big band on a project soon to be released.
Performances for Jack have included small clubs, college theaters, large amphlitheatres and jazz festivals. He has opened for Sergio Mendez and Maureen McGovern, and has appeared in jazz festivals alongside of Nancy Wilson, Jack Jones and Eddy Daniels. Jack appeared during the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City at the famous Snowbird Resort and has also entertained in Park City, Utah.
Jack's clean-cut handsome image, his warm personal rapport with an audience and his superb engaging voice makes him a favorite among fans. He is an artist with class and style. Information from http://jackwoodmusic.com/bio.html More details about Jack Wood can be found on his website.
