Some folks compare him to a younger Tony Bennett, Johnny Hartman or Mel Torme. One reviewer dubbed him “Mr. Tuxedo Voice.” Texas Monthly says he’s one of the “Swing Set.” In reality, his voice, persona and performance style put him in a category all his own. But no matter how you describe him, there isn’t anybody on today’s music scene quite like jazz crooner KEN SLAVIN.
Long before the current crop of young interpreters of classic jazz and the Great American Songbook embarked on their careers, Slavin was working the microphone deep in the heart of Texas – in the culturally diverse and vibrant city of San Antonio.
When he makes his professional New York City jazz cabaret debut at the famed Metropolitan Room on October 31, his audience can expect an exciting show from this naturally gifted singer and entertainer. A late bloomer who began performing just before his 30th birthday, he has racked up numerous awards and glowing reviews across the country and overseas. His CDs are programmed on many traditional and internet radio stations in the USA and Europe. His most recent recording, "I'll Take Romance," has been spotlighted on programs from Alaska to New York and as far away as the United Kingdom, Italy, Poland, New Zealand, Portugal, France and Mexico – and is currently programmed on the "Singers and Swing" channel of Music Choice, cable TV's digital music service headquartered in New York City.
