Somethin Jazz Café continues to be a favorite New York performance venue for Mr. Levore. “I love that Somethin Jazz Café is centrally located on one of the most historic streets associated with jazz music in New York City, 52nd Street. It's an intimate setting, but there's plenty of room for the audience to not feel too crowded in.”

About Vocalist Fredrick Levore:
Fredrick Levore’s musical style is, both inspired by, and executed with a hybrid of popular musical genres. Mr. Levore is known for putting a contemporary jazz spin on each song as his signature style.
In describing his signature take on a song, Mr. Levore explains, “My approach is more soulful and bluesy, with just a measure of R&B. What I hope the audience hears is a contemporary blending of Sam Cook, Lou Rawls and Roy Hamilton mixed with Nat King Cole, Johnny Hartman and Sammy Davis, Jr. [It's] Something new, but at the same time familiar. Those qualities set me apart from other singers.”
“George Benson and Al Jarreau are my heroes. They both have legendary jazz chops but can still sing with great, contemporary sensibility. They are my touchstones, along with Teddy [Pendergrass], Jeffery [Osborne] and, of course, Luther [Vandross]," continues Mr. Levore.
Incorporating a bluesy & soulful twist, Levore is a student of the process of making music, as much as with the finished product. “I enjoy how it feels to sing," explains Mr. Levore. "It’s about understanding the words and the meaning, catching that thread in the song, and sharing it with the audience.”
Fredrick Levore’s CD, “Skindiver,” released in 2004, is currently available on iTunes
