I love singing classic Jazz, Swing, and the Great American Songbook. I'm Inspired by Sinatra, Bennett, Martin and the world's great Jazz era musicians and song stylists who allow us to live in the lyrics and beats of this timeless, iconic music that moves people. - Lou Giovannetti, Big Band frontman, Lou Sings Swing
