Amazing Debut from Jazz Singer Chris Humphrey on Cadence Jazz Records "Nothing But Blue Sky" features drummer standout Matt Wilson Early media response to singing sensation Chris Humphrey’s debut album, "Nothing But Blue Sky" (Cadence Jazz Records 1201) has been overwhelmingly positive. Recorded with award-winning drummer Matt Wilson and Martin Wind (who comprise 2/3 of the Bill Mays trio) and Boston-based Mark Shilansky on piano, the smooth-voiced Humphrey blends energetic fresh arrangements with originality and sincerity. Cadence says "This is classic Jazz vocal - timeless in its appeal and natural in its delivery. A wonderful example of the art of vocalist as instrumentalist. Chris Humphrey makes his debut on 8 standards and 3 notable originals, delivered with sincerity and a naturalness of flow. Chris Humphrey is a singer of significance. Jazz Singing Legend Sheila Jordan says, "Chris sure can sing, what a joy! Wonderful arrangements, and his singing knocks me out...this guy is a gas!" Jazz writer/producer Bob Rusch said "Chris projects a sincerity and hipness that never falters, sounds forced or without reserve. It allows him simply to be himself and project the final piece of the whole: individuality. We listeners are fortunate to have available this kind of talent to balance out the forgettable."
