It’s commendable enough that he’s one of LA’s top session players, that he writes as well as arranges and is a crack solo artist.

But if anyone had told me that trumpeter Rick Braun also sings, I would have looked them in the eye and gasped, “Not fair!” It just doesn’t make sense that one guy can do all these things and succeed equally at each one of them.

But he’s a profound singer and his debut vocal album remind us of titans such as Frank Sinatra and Chet Baker.
