Performing Music From His New CD

Avenue of the Americas is the critically-acclaimed singer and multi- instrumentalist Tom Lellis's newest recording. Joined by world renowned musicians including Toninho Horta and Richard Bona, Tom sings his lyrics to works by Pat Metheny, Horta, the Yellowjackets, Keith Jarrett, an original and arrangements of music by the Beatles, Ashford and Simpson and U2.

“Tom Lellis is a bold, innovative musician with a supple voice and distinctive style. Lellis imitates nobody, and his passion is evident in every word he sings. Refreshing!" -- All About Jazz

Standards and new works with a terrific, unique Latin Flavor “Tom Lellis is a man of many talents as he so well demonstrates on this fine new CD. Not only is he a fine and pungent vocalist, but he also is a strong lyricist, composer and arranger. This is one of those recordings for easy listening in the evening watching the sun go down - and the fire come up!" --Amazon.com

“This is very much a haunting and atmospheric set, one of Lellis' most intriguing to date." --All Music Guide

“Tom Lellis has everything going for him." --DownBeat

“A spirited, nimble embroidery of melody" --New York Times

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.
