"Maurice is a new voice in jazz. In I've Never Been In Love Before, he takes you on a journey through the peaks and valleys of a love affair. On this particular trip, Maurice is joined by two combinations, both comprised of the most exciting and accomplished musicians that any singer could be fortunate enough to have on his team. Such gifted accompanists as Frank Owens, Bob Cranshaw, Joe Wilder, Frank Wess, Joe Shepley and Sherrie Maricle know exactly how to inspire, cajole and guide Maurice through the ups and downs of love - the experiences that all of us have and will go through in life."
—Will Friedwald, the author of Jazz Singing and Sinatra! The Song Is You, and co-author with Tony Bennett of The Good Life.
Maurice Hines is the celebrated dancer, choreographer and director and a performer in "Hines, Hines and Dad," making his recording debute as a vocalist.
