We were thrilled to welcome back this week singer/saxophonist Curtis Stigers.

The last time Curtis visited the Jazz24/KPLU Performance Studio, he had just released his ‘break up’ CD.  Well, time heals all wounds and this time around he touring with his ‘happy’ CD—Hooray For Love.

In this performance interview with KPLU’s Abe Beeson, Curtis and his band perform the CD’s title track (written by Stigers), Valentine’s Day, written by Steve Earle and the classic, The Way You Look Tonight, by Jerome Kern and Dorothy Fields.

Band members: Matthew Fries (piano), Cliff Schmitt (bass), Paul Wells (drums), John “Scrapper” Sneider (trumpet) and Bobby Sneider (guitar).
