Editorial Reviews

Product Description

In 2006, an acclaimed Filipino musician, the longtime drummer in a popular Philippines pop group, entered the London International Jazz Vocal competition, where jazz singers from dozens of nations attempted to wow the judges and put their country on the musical map. After listening to hundreds of performances, the decision was unanimous: the champion was the unheralded Filipino, Mon David. With his debut American recording, Coming True, a tribute to where he's been and where he's at, Mon David [pronounced MOAN da-VEED] joins the ranks of the world's finest male vocalists. Featuring a blazing trio led by Filipino piano virtuoso Tateng Katindig and special guests Justo Almario and David's "jazzipino" sister Charmaine Clamor, this swinging and heartfelt recording demonstrates that, despite all odds, Mon David's musical dreams are Coming True.

Review

The Filipino singer Mon David is that rarity: a male jazz vocal artist with a distinctly original style of his own. He has a remarkable voice able to leap octaves in a single bound. Combined with a world class scat singing style, he is establishing himself as a jazz talent with a big future. --Don Heckman, International Review of Music

A tremendous talent with a style so refreshing and affecting, his jazz feel so right-on, with a vocal technique that is ingenious, swinging, daring in places, cool in others. --Brick Wahl, LA WEEKLY

Let me add my heartfelt praise for Mon's work. His technique is impeccable, yet he has emotional conviction, a brilliant combination that not many singers have today. I think he has a long and wonderful adventure ahead of him here in the United States, and elsewhere in the world. --Dianne Schuur

Format: Audio CD
Jazz music seems to be dominated by females these days. How cool it is to discover a new MALE vocalist who sings jazz about as well as anyone alive. This Mon David fellow swings like crazy, he scats better than just about any male vocalist alive -- including Kurt Elling and Mark Murphy -- and he's soulful as hell. This guy is sensational. I think the song selection on this album is key. Nothing overdone, but also nothing too esoteric either. Very fresh. The arrangements are quite clever without being cute. (Check out his "Moonlight Serenade"!) Also, the record sounds great. Crystal clear production. This is my new favorite jazz vocalist and my leading contender for jazz vocal record of the year. If you dig jazz vocals, check it out. You'll be blown away. I sure was.
