Roberto Mighty’s debut album, “KiTCHEN MuSIC,” features funky versions of romantic songs from the 40’s and 50’s over sensuous grooves, plus his jazzy singing and acoustic guitar playing. Roberto, a professional TV food producer (Todd English, Ming Tsai, Jacques Pepin) also has a free cooking/music video series on www.robertomighty.com.
“These are the kinds of tunes my Mom sang while cooking,” says Roberto. “I love these tunes, and now I sing them while I cook for my daughter.”
Fans of Michael Buble, Harry Connick, Jr., Tony Bennet, George Benson and John Pizzarelli will recognize the songs on KiTCHEN MuSIC. Roberto’s new, guitar-centered arrangements feature his vocals and a full band. Songs include “Misty,” “Fly Me To The Moon,” “Night and Day,” “Autumn Leaves,” “My Ship,” “Here’s That Rainy Day,” “In The Wee Small Hours of The Morning,” “All The Things You Are,” “Skylark,” and “My One And Only Love.”
The cooking videos feature Mighty’s healthy, multicultural cuisine, like his Citrus Ginger Shrimp with Angel Hair Pasta & Sauteed Garlic Spinach; and Grilled Pork Chops with Butternut Squash & Kale Simmered in White Wine.
Except for Beasley on sax, Roberto performs all of the tracks on KiTCHEN MuSIC, including six different guitars; keyboards; multiple vocal tracks, percussion and MIDI. He also produced, arranged, recorded and mixed the entire CD in his bedroom on a home computer. The process took two years.
KiTCHEN MuSIC is available now on iTunes, Amazon and CD Baby.
