Mel Collins and Standard Mel
Together with some of the finest musicians in Los Angeles, vocalist Meloney Collins brings you Standard Mel. Both contemporary and classic, Standard Mel is a seamlessly woven tapestry of timeless entertainment in the style of Ella Fitzgerald, Nancy Wilson and Anita O'Day, as well as the newer sounds of artists like Jill Scott, John Legend, and Martin Sexton.
Sounds reminiscent of the golden jazz age of the 40's and 50's, newer sounds of today's artists, and even some of your favorite standard television theme songs are all performed with a unique flair that only Meloney Collins can deliver. Standard Mel is energetic, charming, moving, and highly entertaining. Their masterfully played tunes will put you in a good mood.
Standard Mel’s band members have performed or recorded with big names such as Herbie Hancock, Nancy Wilson, Sammy Davis, Jr., Milton Berle, Rosemary Clooney, Four Tops, Marvin Gaye, Diane Reeves, Sheena Easton, and Gladys Knight (to name a few). Band members include Jeff Littleton bass player, Paul Johnson drummer, Matthew Selby pianist, and Rastine Calhoun saxophone flutist.
