Andy Bey is a fantastic jazz singer who bridges eras and generations, achieving that rare state of grace where his approach--marked by amazing range, full-bodied tone, and sheer melody--is both contemporary and timeless. In the 1960s, Bey had a vocal group with his sisters Salome and Geraldine, and ROUND MIDNIGHT is a reissue of one of their three albums. They were unique, in that they were most certainly a jazz group, yet were unafraid to adapt influences and songs from pop and R&B. Bey and his siblings offered class-act readings of Ray Charles ("Hallelujah I Love Her So"), Billie Holiday ("God Bless The Child") and Broadway pop ("Feeling Good"), among other tunes.
