Curtis Stigers: Secret Heart

"Secret Heart" places Curtis Stigers firmly in the musical world he considers home: that of the jazz singer. But it wasn’t always this way. Stigers had a successful pop career in the early ’90s, but decided the music he wanted to do was elsewhere. His latest CD marks the evolution of a jazz singer with a remarkable voice and a talent for rendering for songs with a timeless touch.
