    in Entertainment

    Contemporary jazz vocalist, Victor Fields, joins forces with smooth jazz guitarist, Chris Camozzi, for a head-bobbing and soulful rendition of a Lou Rawls classic!  The Lou Rawls Project is a sultry, bluesy and easy swinging set featuring lush, sophisticated re-imaginings of ten Rawls classics.  Victor's rich gauzy tenor and his ability to move seamlessly between the blues, jazz, R&B and Pop prompted the legendary Lou Rawls to call him “the man with the golden voice” and the Los Angeles Times to describe him as "a stylistically accomplished singer who deserves much more attention."
