Interview. Bobby Caldwell talks about his career and present his brand new jazz album After Dark.

Sinatra was the favorite artist in my family’s home, and I developed a deep appreciation for the way Frank was able to emote a song. I also loved the Beatles.

It was a great time in my life, as a kid in Miami, Florida.
