“Mr. Gates is a solid example of a performer who is doing something that no one else does. He evokes an age…when musicians were entertainers and entertainers were musicians, and a sense of humor was as important as a sense of rhythm.” Will Friedwald, The New York Sun.
Blessed with a full-bodied and mellifluous voice, extraordinary rhythmic precision and an unerring sense of lyricism, Gates’ total command of the vernacular, boundless creativity and exuberant passion sets him apart from nearly every other vocalist on the scene.
Giacomo has performed with Kurt Elling’s The Four Brothers vocal ensemble, Lou Donaldson, Freddie Hubbard, Richie Cole, and Rufus Reid, among others; plays the major U.S. clubs, including New York’s Birdland, Smoke, the Blue Note, and Dizzy’s; tours internationally; and has six highly acclaimed CDs. His most recent release, Miles Tones-Giacomo Gates Sings The Music of Miles Davis, has topped the National Jazz Radio Playlist at #1 for four weeks!
