O’s Notes: Jazz vocalist John Minnock is a true entertainer infusing elements of jazz, blues, funk and R&B into his passionate, baritone repertoire. He got started in Boston and gained momentum in Manhattan where he regularly delights the crowd at the Metropolitan Room. Right Around The Corner is Minnock’s latest release featuring guest soprano saxophonist Dave Liebman on “New York, New York” and “Skylark.” Guitarist Tony DePaolo makes a strong showing on “Moon River”. We also enjoyed the swinging cover of “You Don’t Know What Love Is”.
