I met renowned, award-winning singer Denzal Sinclaire for the first time in Vancouver, Canada in 1999 at Rossini's Jazz Club. We became very good friends and 10 years later Denzal came to Europe to tour with Claude Diallo Situation. One of the performances was recorded and the CD, «Traveling with Music» was released, which features Denzal on track 10. If you would like to know more about him visit www.denzalsinclaire.com
