This warmly suave, suavely warm guy won the room’s annual talent search contest this year. Now he claims his coveted prize, this five-day run. What distinguished him in the finals was his creative approach to the songs he chose to sing: without sacrificing meaning, he played with phrasing and rhythm with irresistible conviction. It’s likely that this won’t be the last time he brings class and savvy to this venue.
