Giacomo Gates is not only one of the leading practitioners of vocalese, he takes material from a wide range of composers and makes it his own. Whether it's uptempo bop , ballads or blues, Gates' intimate style gives you the feeling he is in your living room singing just to you.

He pays homage to his vocal heroes on his new disc "Everything Is Cool". Jon Hendricks, Babs Gonzalez, King Pleasure, Eddie Jefferson and others are among the legendary vocalists that are honored in this collection. Gates previously paid tributes to Gil Scott-Heron and Miles Davis.
