German jazz vocalist Roger Cicero interpreted the sound and spirit of the swing era for contemporary audiences, upholding the family traditions established by his father, renowned jazz pianist Eugene Cicero. Born in West Berlin, Cicero grew up surrounded by jazz and its practitioners, and at age 11, he made his professional debut in support of singer Helen Vita. He later studied voice, piano, and guitar at the Hohner Conservatory, and from 1989 to 1992 served as a regular member of the Eugene Cicero Trio. In 1997, Cicero joined the groups Jazzkantine and Soulonge. That same year, he founded the Roger Cicero Quartet, as well as an 11-member big band. ~ Jason Ankeny
