Bryan Anthony isn’t worried about musical labels. Whether you call him a jazz singer with pop sensibilities or a pop vocalist steeped in jazz, he’s staked his artistic identity in the vast and beloved collection of songs that emanated from Broadway, Hollywood and Tin Pan Alley in the first half of the 20th century. Much like Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett, popular artists who were inextricably linked to jazz while not belonging wholly to the scene, Anthony has honed an approach based upon jazz’s rhythmic fluidity but that doesn’t depart from the essential melodies.
“A tall, likeable guy with a huge satiny voice, he often attained a sexy, brash confidence and a plush romanticism that gave a hint of Ol’ Blue Eyes.”
