Mark Raisch Sings American Standards, The Music of Jazz, Swing, And Romance.
Mark Raisch sings American Standards, the music of Jazz, Swing, and Romance. Whether I'm singing a poignant love song or jazzing things up to a stomping swing people tell me they hear influences of Bobby Darin, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Harry Connick Jr. and many others. Though I can't sound like all of these singers, from my experience I've discovered people like to compare me to their favorite singers of this music. I always considered those comparisons as a generous complement.
