CD Review: Vocalist Steve Cromity’s recording “All My Tomorrows” is masterful. It has all the elements which embodies good jazz and makes this pleasing to the ear. Cromity is from the Johnny Hartman-Joe Williams school of jazz singing.
His voice is as mellow as they come and his delivery, especially on ballads is so warm and lush. There’s so much to like here. The ballads are exquisite , especially the title cut along with “I Was Telling Her About You”. Marilyn
and Alan Bergman’s “Where Do You Start” pulls at the heartstrings and Duke Pearson and Oscar Brown Jr’s “Jeannine” swings as does “Without A Song”. The musicians led by pianist Marcus Persiani are world class. Saxophonist
Patience Higgins and Kenyetta Beasley on trumpet are are quite impressive. The entire ensemble is deserving of wider recognition. “All My Tomorrows” is a truly fine recording and Steve Cromity is a major talent.
