In recent years, Canada has become an important incubator for the latest best selling jazz vocalists including Diana Krall, Holly Cole, Molly Johnson, Michael Buble, and Sophie Millman. The latest hot new vocal export is DK Ibomeka (pronounced ee-bo-MECK-ah) and industry insiders are saying that DK possesses one of the best new jazz voices in years.With a three-octave range, huge emotional depth and power, he is well-equipped to deliver a decidedly original spin on the classic jazz material he has chosen for his second album I’m Your Man.On his new recording, DK is backed by some of Canada’s finest players (George Koller on bass, Davide DiRenzo on percussion, Michael Shand on keys and Kelley Jefferson on Sax) with a special guest appearance by Pee Wee Ellis (long-time band leader for Van Morrison and member of the legendary James Brown Horn Section - the JB’s). With the bulk of the sessions being recorded over four days, the album reflects the live performance energy of DK’s live shows.The 2006 release of his Debut CD “Love Stories” launched DK on a two-year whirlwind of appearances that saw him touring Europe four times, debut in the UK at London’s Ronnie Scott’s and criss-cross his home country of Canada, with performances at the Montreal International Jazz Festival, The Ottawa Jazz Festival, The Toronto jazz Festival and the Winnipeg Jazz Festival - and opening slots with such diverse acts as Holly Cole, the Colin James Little Big Band, The Temptations and Jacksoul.
