In his debut album release, according to press notes, "Leslie Odom Jr. shares his honest unadulterated vocal style with a collection of songs that includes both traditional jazz standards and musical theater favorites. Listening to Leslie's ultra smooth tenor, it is easy to understand why he is often likened to a modern day Nat King Cole. In this album, Leslie works with a jazz rhythm section to showcase his vocals over arrangements that grow to include full string sections, and are, at times, pared down to simply an acoustic guitar or a cappella. Overall, this stark and simple interpretation offers a fresh perspective that attempts to reintroduce some ageless classics to a modern audience."

Joe's Pub is located at 425 Lafayette Street. For more information and tickets, visit JoesPub.com. For more information on his album, visit iTunes, Amazon or CD Baby
