21-year old Peter Cincotti made headlines in early 2003 when his self-titled debut release topped the Billboard charts. Within the following months, he could be seen and heard everywhere, from performances on The Today Show" and Late Night with Conan O'Brien" to feature stories in Vanity Fair and Elle. By year's end, he had toured the world, been named as one of People magazine's Sexist Men Alive," and become one of the top 5 selling jazz artists of 2003.
This week, Peter's sophomore CD, On the Moon," debuted at #2 on the Billboard Traditional Jazz Charts. On the recording, the singer and pianist retools some beloved standards ("St. Louis Blues," Some Kind of Wonderful" and I Love Paris") with some funky, contemporary and, some say, infectious twists. He even transplants Bali Ha'i" from a beach in the South Pacific to the urban streets. Also look out for 4 Cincotti-originals, such as the heart-felt He Watching" and the seductive I'd Rather Be With You."

On September 30th, he performs on the The Tonight Show." In November, you can watch him make his acting debut in the much lauded Bobby Darin bio-flick Beyond The Sea," starring and directed by Kevin Spacey.
