"It is a real privilege and honor to bring the art of song to the Columbia Museum of Art. It's particularly a treat to perform amongst the exhibition, Ansel Adams: Masterworks. We have a profound respect for the great artists whose songs we are interpreting, and being surrounded by the work of Ansel Adams will make that appreciation resonate even more deeply," Kevin Bush said.

Joined by bass player Terry Trentham and percussionist Charles Williams, Evolution: 21st Century Songbook brings a fresh voice to traditional cabaret through intimate interpretations of songs by writers like Jimi Hendrix, Suzanne Vega, Leonard Cohen, Stevie Wonder, Rickie Lee Jones and others - songs destined to become a vital part of the next Great American Songbook.
