Matt Dusk - Two ShotsA graduate of Toronto’s St. Michael’s Choir School, which produced such hit vocal groups as the Diamonds and the Four Lads, the 24-year-old Dusk paid his dues studying opera, classical and choral music—lots of Latin. But it was at York University, where he won the Oscar Peterson Scholarship, that Dusk fell in love with jazz. Recorded with the 42-piece string section of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, his debut album announces the arrival of a singer with the voice and all the style and swagger of a young Sinatra.
