Nicolas Bearde CD Release 

When: Tue., June 3, 8 & 10 p.m. 2008
Price: $12-$18

The many forays that Nicolas Bearde made during his singing career -- church choir in Nashville, soul band in Tokyo, cabaret clubs in San Francisco, Bobby McFerrin's Voicestra and later, the a capella group SoVoSó -- ultimately led him straight back to the past. His latest project is a tribute to blues singer Lou Rawls, and features hip, swing-time, vibrato-sluiced renditions of such standards as "God Bless the Child," "The Shadow of Your Smile," and "The Girl from Ipanema." With his classy pinstripe suits, silk ties, and smooth, legato phrasings, Bearde inhabits the old-school lounge-singer persona pretty well -- though he'll occasionally stretch or bend the notes to make his tunes sound more contemporary. Bearde sings Tues., June 3 at Yoshi's in Jack London Square (510 Embarcadero West). Shows at 8 p.m. ($18) and 10 p.m. ($12).
