“There is little Mahogany cannot do” – Whitney Balliet, New Yorker Magazine
Celebrating 20 years as a recording artist, the majestic, blues-soaked tone and jaw– dropping scat of Kansas born vocalist, Kevin Mahogany, have invited comparisons to Johnny Hartman and Joe Williams. One of the ‘Four Brothers’ featured alongside the legendary Jon Hendricks, Bobby McFerrin and Al Jarreau, Mahogany is also an esteemed educator, record label boss and appears in the Robert Altman film Kansas City.
He launches ReVoice! 2013 with a top flight British band: pianist James Pearson (Ronnie Scott’s Club Musical Director, Wynton Marsalis, Paul McCartney), bassist Mark Hodgson (Randy Brecker, Melody Gardot, Billy Cobham) and drummer Dave Ohm (Gregory Porter, Benny Golson, Claire Martin).
