Derek Hines’ book of vocals is quite diverse. The themes focus on traditional standards from Evans to Monk. The sub-plots are a jazz take on legends from Lennon/McCartney to Jimmy Webb.
Derek is joined by Marc Girard, a swingin’ Mohawk grad and an old shipmate who’s sound is inspired by Ed Bickert. Johnny Chapman lays it down on bass and Adam Fielding will take on the kit.
Derek is known across the region as a creative and thoughtful interpreter of jazz ballads. This touching rendition of In the wee small hours surfaces candid lines that feature Hines and Chapman. A gently swinging lyrical groove that has the feel of a duet between baritone and double bass.
Highlights of his career include performances with Freddy Cole, and 70′s television great John Davidson. This path also led to a five year run with Carnival Cruise Lines where he cut his teeth nightly with some of the world’s finest musicians.
