Vocalist Marty Elkins’ easy, elegant delivery makes Fat Daddy a listening delight. Backed by fantastic arrangements and exquisite musicianship, Elkins expertly covers an array of  standards by J.C. Johnson Fats Waller and Andy Razaf, Arthur Johnston, Johnny Green and Edward Heyman, among others. The outstanding accompaniment comes from the lineup of Jon-Erik Kellso on trumpet, James Chirillo on guitar, Lee Hudson on bass, Taro Okamoto on drums, Leopoldo Fleming on percussion. Steve Ash handes the piano duties alternately with Joel Diamond, who also plays organ and saxophone on the effort. Just a solid production and wonderful recording.
