Karl came to the world of jazz, inspired by the songs and music of Chet Baker, Mark Murphy, Diane Schuur, Nat King Cole and Miles Davis. Starting out as an instrumentalist he soon found a new and growing audience as a jazz singer and has now amassed an impressive collection of Jazz standards including all the favourite hits from the Great American Songbook featuring all of the great composers including Gershwin, Cole Porter, Sondheim and Kurt Weill. He also produces several shows with his trio: Liam Dunachie (piano), Misha Mullov Abbado (bass) and Scott Chapman (drums).These shows include tributes to Chet Baker and Nat King Cole. “Music From the Shows” showcases hits from 42nd Street, Guys and Dolls, Wild Party, West Side Story and more.
Karl has recorded his own album “Calling Card” produced by Liane Carroll and mixed by Derek Nash at Clowns Pocket Recording Studios…..“The whole process was inspiring and fun. On the day, the trio played the album tracks with such passion! I loved every minute.” He is also planning a new recording which will include several new and exciting original songs.
