Kapland, 2007, CD
Instrument: Male Vocals
Jazz Ruler Type: Ballads, Blues
O’s Notes: Ron presents us with a dozen songs that feature the big apple. We liked the seductive groove of “Harlem Nocturne”, and the playful spirit of “New York New York/Broadway”. We could visualize his thoughts when he sang “New York State Of Mind”. Ron’s annunciation is crisp allowing us to appreciate each of the words on songs like “Take The A Train”. We always knew the tune, now we know the words, definitively! The band is a quintet with Larry Dunlap (p), Akira Tana (d), Erik Jekabson (t) and Noel Jewkes (sax & cl). With Kaplan out front on the mic, they produce a fine set!
