Peter Cincotti's "On The Moon" Debuts at #2 on Billboard


Sign in to view read count
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."

And if you've been wondering what's on the agenda for Peter for the rest of the year, he returns to the “Today Show" on 9/21 and joins Tony Danza on his new TV show on 9/28. 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. All this and more as Cincotti tours across the United States and Europe.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
