(Bill Cote)

From the very first note, you can hear that Bill Coté is a remarkable singer. Where Do You Start is the debut for the baritone vocalist and what a debut it is. Coté’s delivery is at once relaxing and engaging as he winds his way through many of the standards he’s sung for more than 50 years. Featured are the songs of Sammy Cahn and Gene De Paul, Alan and Marilyn Bergman, Jay Livingston, and Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart. The musicians joining the singer in this effort are top-notch. The lineup includes Tamir Hendelman on piano, Martin Wind on bass, Joe LaBarbera on drums, Bob Sheppard on sax and flue and Graham Dechter playing guitar. Bill Coté is such a true discovery, that it’s hard to believe we haven’t heard his amazing voice before now.
