— Bob Dorough —
BOB DOROUGH, born in Arkansas and “raised”ˇ in Texas, immediately
fell in love with music upon joining the Plainview Texas High School
Band. He served three years in a Special Services Army Band Unit, gaining
much professional experience as arranger, clarinetist, saxophonist, pianist,
and entertainer (1943-45).
After earning a Bachelor Of Music degree at the University of North Texas
(1949), he made a bee-line for New York City where he took classes at
Columbia University and immersed himself in the volatile Jazz scene then
taking place there - the BeBop revolution. In 1952 he turned his back on
the academic scene to devote himself to Jazz performance, specializing in
piano/vocals. After years of accompanying, conducting, arranging, and
playing, he made his first recording as a leader (1956) for the Bethlehem
label....DEVIL MAY CARE, having written the title tune three years
earlier. He is known as “the only singer to record with Miles Davis.” While
this may not be 100% true, he did record two vocals with Davis in 1962,
“Nothing Like You,” and “Blue Xmas,” both of which he composed. Davis
also recorded an instrumental version of Bob’s classic song, “Devil May
Care,” that same year.
In 1971, he received a commission to “set the multiplication tables to
music.” This led to a small industry, being the beginning of ABC-TV’s
SCHOOLHOUSE ROCK, the Saturday morning cartoons that entertained and instructed unsuspecting children during the years 1973-1985.
The impact of this media exposure was unpredictably immense. The
show came back for another five years in the 90’s and is now enjoying its
30th anniversary with a DVD edition of the entire, five-subject series, for
which Dorough worked as the Musical Director.
In 1995 he signed a contract with the prestigious Jazz label - Blue Note
Records - and has done three CDs for them (Right On My Way Home,
Too Much Coffee Man and Who’s On First).
Now residing in Pennsylvania, he has received honors from that state (the
Governor’s Artist of the Year Award) and from his native state (the
Arkansas Jazz Hall of Fame).
In 2002, his trio was chosen to represent the State Department and
Kennedy Center, as an Ambassador of Jazz and Blues. The one-month
tour saw them play some 22 workshops and concerts in thirteen cities
across six different countries.
Currently recording on Merry Lane Records and his own label, Bob
Dorough continues to perform, often for children too, in Jazz Clubs and
Schools, wherever he can.

Lou Lanza
Lou Lanza is a native Philadelphian who thrives on the cultural and
musical heritage of that city. Lou has music in his genes - an Opera singer
grandfather, a Classical violinist father, and a pianist/organist & vocalist
mother. His Jazz influence came from another of his relatives, Vince
Trombetta, a saxophonist & arranger who served as musical director of
The Mike Douglas Show. Lou’s music teachers include Carlo Menotti,
Jimmy Bruno, Michael Leonard, and Larry McKenna. It has been written
about Lou that “His style is relaxed but energetic. He’s somewhere in
between Connick and Elling for style with his own signature... If you haven’t
heard this guy yet, you’re missing something special!” - D. Oscar Groomes,
O’s Place Jazz Newsletter; “The young singer successfully fused the crooning
and vulnerability of Mel Torme and a young Chet Baker with the risk
taking vocalese and scatting of Mark Murphy and Jon Hendricks.” - Alex
Henderson, www.allmusic.com; “There is an intensity to his singing that is
unique, upbeat and hip; his musicianship is extraordinary.” - Donald True
Van Deusen, The Philadelphia Inquirer; “Lou is unerringly hip, and has an
unfailing sense of swing.” - Peter Nero; “Hot, swinging male Jazz vocals with
breath-catching agility and personality.” - www.tascadamusica.blogspot.
com; “Fine, Young-tude, light baritone sound...a voice that uses a perfect
scale, control... Lou Lanza - remember that name.” - Mark Murphy; “Lanza,
a singer, songwriter, leader, is perhaps the most accomplished male vocalist
working in this area.” - Donald True Van Deusen, www.allaboutjazz.
com; “Over the years I’ve worked with many singers, Lou is one of the
best!” - Jimmy Bruno; “Far superior to Kurt Elling, Michael Buble, Peter
Cincotti, and Jamie Cullum, already finds himself, in spite of the difference
in age, at the same level of expressiveness of Mark Murphy, Al Jarreau, and
Andy Bey.” - Arnaldo DeSouteiro, Tribuna da Imprensa, and by no less
of an authority than Tony Bennett, “great.” His live performances in
Philadelphia, New York, London, Los Angeles, & Las Vegas, to mention
a few, have earned him the admiration of many industry professionals,
colleagues, and fans. Lou’s recordings include: The Road Not Taken
(C.A.B. Records), Corner Pocket (J-Bird Records), Shadows and Echoes
(Challenge Records), and Opening Doors: A Jazz Tribute to The Doors
and An Intimate Portrait in Blue. He was named the top male Jazz vocalist
of 2004 in the reader’s poll of Rio de Janeiro’s Tribuna da Imprensa for
the album opening Doors, and An Intimate Portrait In Blue was listed
among the top ten overall albums of 2006 in the same publication. Lou
is considered to be among the top 500 Jazz vocalists of all time by noted
Jazz critic, historian, and author Scott Yanow and is listed as such in his
book The Jazz Singers. Scott has this to say about Lou: “Lou Lanza is one
of the few potentially major male Jazz singers under the age of 60 on the Jazz
scene today. His warm voice, subtle improvising and unpredictable repertoire
make him a singer well worth discovering.”
