Caesar

Caesar delivers exquisite renditions of classic standards and romantic love ballads that have left audiences around the world in a trance well after the last note is sung. His voice is a direct link to the golden age of true vocal artistry and has often been compared to that of Nat "King" Cole. But Caesar has his own interpretation and style that compares to no one, and is essentially and superbly … Caesar.

A Chicago native, graduate of Southern University Caesar got his first break when he nailed an audition for Julio Iglesias at Caesars Palace, Las Vegas, becoming the first and only baritone vocalist to perform with the legendary performer on his Tango World Tour (Julio has sold over 300 million records). Caesar possesses that rare ability to sing in multiple languages. Whether singing unplugged or swinging with his big band Caesar’s voice and stage presence mesmerizes audiences.

Caesar's debut album, entitled “Jazz Standards - For Today's Audience, (Title changed to: Caesar Sings Nat"King" Cole) with special guest, Jazz Guitarist- Peter White was engineered by Al Schmitt, who has won 23 Grammy Awards and served as producer/engineer on over 150 Gold and Platinum albums including: Nat and Natalie's Unforgettable, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Michael Buble, Diana Krall, and most recently Sir Paul McCartney's latest album. Caesar recorded his vocals at Capitol Studios, in Studio A, using the original microphone and Steinway piano Nat "King" Cole used in the 1950s.

Caesar has toured, shared the stage and recorded with: Julio Iglesias, Lou Rawls, Herbie Hancock, Stanley Clark, George Duke, Al Jarreau, Ronnie Laws, Rachelle Farrell, Jonathan Butler, Gerald Albright, Rick Braun, Michael Paulo, James Ingram and Peter White, just to name a few.
