Peter Cincotti
(Concord Jazz – 2003)
by Paula Edelstein

Concord Jazz records may have a major hit on its hands due to Peter Cincotti, the 19- year old tall, dark and very handsome jazz pianist, singer and composer who recently signed with the Beverly Hills-based label. A sophomore at Columbia University, Cincotti debuted his self-titled CD this month with all the fanfare of a new press darling. Produced by the legendary Phil Ramone, Peter Cincotti is stunning in its versatility, romance and charm. Cincotti’s voice mirrors the techniques of Harry Connick, Jr., John Pizzarelli, and a young Frank Sinatra, whom Peter admits he idolized as a child.

The program consists of such standards as Comes Love the ever-so-sultry Sway which Cincotti delivers with a theatrical flair, Fats Waller’s Ain’t Misbehavin’ and Miss Brown. He covers the Fool On The Hill/Nature Boy medley with style and panache and gives these gems a fresh piano and vocals rendition that just about anyone can relate to. Cincotti has THE voice, THE look, THE classy cool and THE pianistic virtuosity that has first class and success written all over him.
