Super Jazz Singer Harvey Thompson 
We are happy for the opportunity
 to hear a top class jazz vocalist, Mr. Harvey Thompson, a native of Detroit, a city which is rich in jazz tradition and the birthplace of many famous jazz personalities. Harvey Thompson does the city honor with his contribution to the jazz legacy. He is a true “torch bearer of American song “as expressed in the Detroit Metro Times about his vast repertoire of ballads and jazz standards. His rich baritone voice inspired the Chicago Tribune to add more compliments about” the stylistic breadth of the repertoire and the sophistication of his performance. “Thompson brings a wealth of experience and professionalism to the stage, bringing the full persona of the male jazz vocalist to the audience. The Tribune adds, “He sings with as much poetry as virtuosity with an ability to communicate a song’s elegance as well as an innate sense of improvisation and swing “.
