Vocalist, Lou Lanza & the Clef Club Big Band under the direction of Louis Taylor

Another young male who is doing his part to keep jazz singing alive and healthy is the Philadelphia-based Lou Lanza, who has fashioned a distinctive and recognizable style that successfully unites the vulnerability of Chet Baker, Mel Torme and a young Frank Sinatra with the hard-bop risk-taking of Mark Murphy and Jon Hendricks.

Lou is honored to be included among the top 500 jazz vocalists of all time in "The Jazz Singers" published by Backbeat Books in 2005 by respected jazz critic/author, Scott Yanow.
