A mix of pop, jazz, and R&B give Leslie Odom, Jr. a distinctive sound. Widely known for his work in the hit Broadway musical, Hamilton, this album solidifies his credibility as a solo artist. Full of building strings, choral harmonies, and unexpected twists, “Mr” is a delight that shows Odom Jr’s true artistry. As if Hamilton wasn't enough, the sound of “Standards” makes it a contender to be selected as a James Bond theme song (even if it is just in our minds).
