INFO: Robin McKelle is a jazz singer who brings new life to some old standards. Inspired by the likes of Ella Fitzgerald and Frank Sinatra, this jazz singer sounds mature beyond her 30 years. Robin McKelle comes out swinging on her second disc of big band jazz, Modern Antique with an approach that is just this side of naughty. The Boston bred singer has created a stylistically ambitious follow-up to her debut while still managing to evoke and honor the forties big-band sound she explored on the remarkable Introducing Robin McKelle.
