When jazz singer and Berkelee College of Music professor David Thorne Scott did a tour performing with the legendary Four Freshmen, he saw that vintage music — sassy and sweet, danceable and sophisticated — hits the spot for 21st century audiences.

He came home to Boston and called up guitarist Paul Pampinella of the groundbreaking a cappella group Vox One, Boston Pops trumpeter and soulful tenor Adam Gautille, and pianist Taylor O’Donnell, whose versatile voice can deliver jazz to funk with a whisper to a wail. Together, they formed Vintage Vocal Quartet.

These multi-talented musicians take their repertoire from the cream of the swing era: Glenn Miller’s Modernaires, the Nat King Cole Trio, the Andrews Sisters, and Tommy Dorsey’s Pied Pipers, as well as Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, and Ella Fitzgerald. Here’s a highlight reel to give you a flavor.

The outstanding individual voices and dazzling harmonies of the Vintage Vocal Quartet will bring something special to our Holiday on the Cape. Check out their performance of “The Christmas Song.”

Their unique spin on traditional holiday songs and new classics, in styles including toe-tapping swing, smooth bossa nova, and driving R&B, will be sure to put a little nutmeg in your cocoa. Don't miss Vintage Vocal Quartet with the Cape Symphony in Holiday on the Cape, November 30, December 1 and December 2.
