The Three Mo’ Tenors have been re-christened Cook, Dixon and Young, effective immediately. Largely considered by many to be the Luciano Pavarotti, Placido Domingo and Jose Carreras of the African-American community, Cook, Dixon and Young have over 40 years combined experience, and have appeared in major concert halls and opera houses around the world. In 2001, the trio released a self-titled disc via RCA Records. According to a spokesperson, the name change was imperative–preceded by a series of events that shocked and angered the group. The tenors discovered that one of their former producers, Brenda Trawick, and her booking agency, Trawick Artists, were allegedly collecting deposits for engagements they had not been made aware of. In what seems like some 1970’s music industry name-trademark drama, the group discovered that Trawick, along with the other former producers, Marion J. Caffey and Willet Klausner, were allegedly planning to franchise the name, Three Mo’ Tenors. Along with the new name, comes a new and improved show (featuring new repertoire, choreography, and a new look), and new management, CD Enterprises, Inc.
