Leonard Feather once said about the great Al Porcino that he "could safely lead a brass section through a brush fire"... Perhaps, but Dan Urness could coax a classroom of special-needs agoraphobes across the Grand Canyon by tightrope. In Japanese.  In addition to handling our unsupported, uncued, and simply unfair lead lines with maximum professionalism and precision, Urness' rich baritone can be heard at the forefront of our soul showstopper my love is like a fungus., penned by him.
