We've been waiting for it! Now, it is released... "Love wins, new standards for the new millennium", the new Bill Cantos album.
As Bill Cantos (singer/songwriter/pianist) says “I'm not trying to be presumptuous in calling these songs 'new standards' - just the opposite. It's my way of paying tribute to all the great music, classic songs, and amazing writing that's come before me.” You can hear it in the music - thirteen of Bill’s originals in the style of classic standards, passionate and smooth, performed by an all-star band.
JAZZIZ magazine singled out Bill as an artist to watch. His songs have been recorded by Ramsey Lewis, Flora Purim, Brenda Russell, Kevyn Lettau, and Cheryl Bentyne (of Manhattan Transfer); and he has contributed to countless recording projects, including albums by Dori Caymmi, John Patitucci, Brian Bromberg, Justo Almario, Steve Amerson, Jay Graydon, Peter Friestedt and Kirk Whalum.
His versatility with both keyboards and vocals has enabled him to tour with an amazing variety of artists, including Phil Collins (his continuing worldwide "First Final Farewell Tour"), Sergio Mendes, Diane Schuur, Flora Purim and Airto, Marc Antoine, Gal Costa, Debby Boone, and Vikki Carr. In addition, Bill and his wife, pianist/composer Mari Falcone, are currently producing the new CD by R&B legend Deniece Williams.
