Backed by a combo of seasoned pros, legendary singer/songwriter Dan Hicks vocalizes the great jazz standards in his uniquely hip style.

"It's a style with plenty of room, and I've been wanting to do this as a separate endeavor for quite some time," says your man Dan. "And don't be surprised if you hear some new lyrics here and there in these songs."

For your listening pleasure, Bayside Jazz includes members of the Hot Licks, the Acoustic Warriors, and other swinging aggregations.

"Deadpan and dry, Hicks faces his audiences with his trademark edgy sarcasm, sending the crowd into guffaws with each acerbic riposte. From his jazzy instrumental mood to the verbal jousting in the songs, it is all uniquely HICKS, whose live performances are not to be missed." -- Sweetwater, Mill Valley, California
