ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“A voice for the ages. Traditional yet fresh. He tells the truth from the soul. It flows so easily from his heart you just can’t get enough. Thank you, Tom Culver, for your heart and soul.”
– Cheryl Bentyne, The Manhattan Transfer

Having already drawn ears in with his takes on Hollywood favorites and garnered great attention for his trip through the Johnny Mercer songbook, esteemed L.A. vocal veteran TOM CULVER now turns his attention to one of jazz’s most revered figures: Duke Ellington.

With DUKE’S PLACE, Culver capitalizes on the interpretive skills he’s been honing behind the microphone for decades, blending sophistication, humor, tenderness, and happy-go-lucky charms into one irresistible package.

Teaming up with MARK WINKLER, the sought-after producer, lyricist, and singer regularly found collaborating with a Who’s Who of vocal elites, Culver delivers a culmination of his long life’s work and bottles the very magic that wows audiences and earned him high praise from none other than the great MARILYN MAYE. She was so taken with Culver’s artistry, in fact, that she went on to produce his Cole Porter-themed show which brought down the house at venues on both coasts—the Metropolitan Room in New York and The Gardenia in Hollywood.

Calling on first-class arranger-pianists like JOSH NELSON and RICH EAMES, employing savvy studio musicians such as guitarist LARRY KOONSE and drummer KEVIN WINARD, and mining the maestro’s catalog for gold, Culver finds himself in good company both in terms of souls and songs. But despite the stellar support system and sterling material, it’s still his game to play. And it’s one that he plays to perfection. Over the course of a dozen performances, Culver makes the case that this most-covered of masters often deserves another look.
