A Rave From Rochester!
The Rochester City Paper said this about Curtis at The Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival:
“It was day No. 5 and did we ever kick it into overdrive. Curtis Stigers started off my evening at Kilbourn Hall. Opening with Arthur ‘Big Boy’ Crudup’s ‘That’s Alright’ with a brief stop at ‘Heartbreak Hotel,’ Stigers was all kinds of suave. His voice was sharp and seasoned — downright luxurious — and his phrasing was impeccable without being the least bit indulgent. When he wasn’t crooning tunes ‘genetically engineered to make you cry,’ he bopped heavy and cool on the sax. Serious class act here, folks.”
