The Vintage Vocal Quartet has been delighting concert audiences and lindy hoppers all over New England. These four performers provide their own swinging accompaniment on piano, bass, guitar and trumpet to complement their powerful harmony vocals.
When founder 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. They 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, Ella Fitzgerald, and Jo Stafford.
The outstanding individual voices and dazzling harmonies of the Vintage Vocal Quartet will bring something special to the Cape Symphony’s Holiday on the Cape program. Their unique spin on traditional songs and as 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.
