Andy Bey

 

continued

Bey always impressed with his deep bass-baritone, which seemed to owe something to the smoothness of Billy Eckstine and Mel Tormé, but his sound has become burnished, slightly rough, and in some ways more flexible. It is similar to what happens to a good tenor saxophone player: the tone deepens and becomes more expressive, filled with rich overtones. His interpretations are direct and simple, with no affectations or mannerisms, but after more than four decades of performing, his sound and phrasing are unmistakably his own. At this phase of his career Andy Bey is an intimate singer who often performs alone at the piano or in the company of guitarist Paul Meyers, an accomplished musician who has been working with Bey for almost a decade. They appear together at the Kerrytown Concert House on Saturday, January 21.
