With his silky smooth baritone, commanding stage presence and a repertoire reflecting influences ranging from Johnny Hartman to Nat King Cole, Harvey Thompson can be considered "the keeper of the flame" of the male jazz-vocal tradition.

"My many years of paying dues (which I am still paying!), learning my craft and improving my jazz technique, and literally singing for my supper, have paid off," Harvey says. "Today, I'm confident in my ability to dignify the jazz idiom with my voice," he adds.

Harvey was born in Detroit but now makes his home here in Tokyo. He describes himself as the "vocal-jazz ambassador of the United States to Japan." On this trip to the club Harvet will be brining a full trio as backup.

Harvey is sure to attract a full house, so come early for a good seat.

And remember, it's FREE. No music charge. No cover charge. Fabulous entertainment, great food and drink, and a friendly atmosphere. It's the best Saturday Nite deal west of the Sumida River!
