Danny Bacher: Still Happy
About Danny Bacher: Still Happy
Danny Bacher’s high-energy tribute to Johnny Mercer spotlights the best of this Georgia-born lyricist with a twist of southern cool. Lord Have Mercer brings the Southland sounds of New Orleans Traditional and Second Line, the Blues, and more to Mercer’s “Accentuate the Positive,” “Lazy Bones,” “Jamboree Jones,” and ”Blues in the Night.” Bacher brings out the humor and pizzazz of these tunes with his smooth-as-silk voice, storytelling skills, and soprano sax chops –– talents that have secured him a following in legendary jazz clubs such as Birdland and The Blue Note, as well as on concert stages like Weill Hall and Jazz at Lincoln Center, plus venues and jazz festivals nationally and internationally.
