The Portraits of a Jazz Musician
Stigers set off in 1987 for New York City from Boise Idaho.
He began a regular engagement at Wilson's on Manhattan's Upper West Side which led to a recording contract with Arista Records. His self-titled debut, released in 1991, sold nearly 2 million copies and spawned several hit singles, including the self-penned top 10 "I Wonder Why."
In support of the album, Stigers appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Night with David Letterman, and toured the world with artists including Elton John, Eric Clapton, Bonnie Raitt, and Rod Stewart. Boise natives missed the days when Curtis played the local Boise night clubs and times when Gene Harris and Curtis would get jazzy. What a treat those days were and Boise fans miss Gene Harris as they know Curtis does too.
