Über Jon Hendricks
If you want a bright lyric written to a jazz solo, Jon Hendricks is your man. This singer became a national sensation in 1957 when his vocal group Lambert, Hendricks & Ross flew to the top of the jazz charts with the cutting edge, multi-tracked album Sing a Song of Basie. Hendricks' knack for writing clever, often deep lyrics has overshadowed his singing voice, so here's your chance to get acquainted with one of the neglected masters of song. Such works as "Gimme That Wine" have aged as well as a fine cabernet.
