Andy Bey: It’s said that if you truly want to hear a musician’s talent, slow down the tempo. Andy Bey sings some of the slowest tempos today: Listening to him is like looking over a master artist’s shoulder as he meticulously applies paint to a canvas.

“I like to take my time, but it can be still with an edge,” Bey says. “You can still feel the groove, no matter how slow it is. So slow is all right with me, because slow can be very suspenseful.”

But Bey isn’t just about singing slowly — and calling him simply a jazz singer misses the point. There’s the passion of gospel in his baritone, plus an operatic sense of drama.

“You know, I’m a lot of things,” Bey says. “I don’t mind being called a jazz whatever. Anybody can put a name on the thing. But it’s much broader than that. It’s about music.”

Bey was born in Newark, N.J., in 1939. Though his family struggled to get by, he grew up surrounded by music.

“There was always some kind of musical thing going on,” Bey says. “There was always a piano in the house, a little raggedy upright or whatever you want to call it. There were people like Louis Jordan on the radio and Ella Fitzgerald. I kind of liked boogie-woogie and ‘Caledonia’ and all that stuff.”
