Giacomo Gates: Not your everyday jazz vocalist

This well-respected singer may not have done everything, but he’s done a lot: operating heavy construction equipment, helping to build the Alaska Pipeline, teaching, sharing the stage with vocalese legend Jon Hendricks, an album of Gil Scott Heron covers.

Gates spoke with me before his season-ending performance in Fort Lauderdale for the Gold Coast Jazz Society, which was to be followed by three nights at the Ball & Chain in Miami.
