“For decades, the question what exactly is a jazz singer has

 had two easy answers: Betty Carter and Mark Murphy.”

                    New York Post

 

Murphy released a few albums, but found genuine success after recording his album Rah.  Success from that album earned Murphy a spot with the Jazz elite, but his next release, That's How I Love the Blues, garnered him a spot on the Jazz Charts, as well as Downbeat Magazine's New Star of the Year. Mark Murphy has performed many genres, but this DVD, Mark Murphy: Murphy's Mood¸ showcases his legacy as the most creative Jazz singer of his generation. Having toured the world, wowed audiences & critics, and received a multitude of accolades, Mark Murphy continues to impress to this day with albums and concerts that showcase his lyrical interpretations of Jazz standards, his impromptu scats, and his distinct and artful voice.
