Style And Song: Peter Cincotti

With Style And Song, I will occasionally profile artists whose music I enjoy and who have a style that I find to be unique or inspirational.  It was an easy choice for this series' first feature... 
Peter Cincotti

Peter's look is elegant, tailored, refined and always suave.  He has mentioned many times that as a youngster he always wanted to wear suits and ties, invariably leaning towards the formal rather than the casual.  It comes as no surprise that one of my favorite menswear designers Ermenegildo Zegna chose Peter as the face of their campaign a few years ago.  From head to toe, his sense of style and sartorial choices are impeccable. 

On The Moon, his debut album, is on my all-time top five list.  The jazz/pop collection of original and cover songs is flawless.  The vocals are smooth and strong, genuinely and powerfully delivered.  His second album East of Angel Town is equally impressive and shows the evolution of his sound, fusing rock/funk/blues/pop & jazz elements .  If you don't already have his music, run don't walk to your nearest music store or purchase online and add to your collection.
