About the album
It is no secret that Denmark has a male vocalist on a par with Harry Connick, Kurt Elling, Jamie Cullum and Michael Bublé - a virtuoso
balancing on the fine line between jazz, pop and soul.
It was apparent on his 2010 release FIFTY WAYS TO LEAVE YOUR LOVER, which placed Bobo Moreno in a subdued, jazzy setting supplied by bassist Bo Stief and pianist Ole Kock Hansen. The unusual constellation of vocal, bass and piano accentuated the personal and disciplined interpretations in the selection of standards and pop classics. Audiences and reviewers alike enjoyed the album – so much, in fact, that the trio has performed more than 150 concerts in Denmark and
internationally since the fall of 2010.
DREAMSVILLE is a welcome and natural follow-up, adding to the line-up the internationally renowned drummer Adam Nussbaum. He
joins in on the telepathic interplay between Ole Kock Hansen’s tasteful harmonies and solos and the rich sound of Bo Stief ’s bass.
Bobo Moreno’s audience loves him because along with Bo Stief, Ole Kock Hansen and now Adam Nussbaum, he has found a sure-fire
formula on how to interpret Henry Mancini’s title track, “Dreamsville”, his own “Bad Timing”, as well as songs by Michel Legrand, Gershwin, Cole Porter, James Taylor and many others. He is at home in many genres – soul, jazz, pop – and the result is a recording with space and confidence for the elegant crooner to meet the groovy and swinging vocalist with a naturalness possessed by few.
