1930's & '40s Standards on SACD!
Massimo Farao' is a wonderful Italian pianist who has played and recorded with Red Holloway, Albert "Tootie" Heath, Tony Scott, Franco Ambrosetti, Nat Adderley, Jeff Tain Watts, Jack DeJohnette and Chris Potter, among others. Farao's passionate style and stoic romanticism are very attractive along with the rich harmonies he creates.
Veteran tenor sax man Jerry Weldon joined the legendary Lionel Hampton Orchestra in 1981 and has worked with dozens of jazz luminaries over the past three plus decades. In 1990, Jerry joined Harry Connick Jr.'s newly formed big band and now, Jerry can be seen daily as part of the "house band" on HARRY, Connick's new daytime variety show. Jerry can also regularly be found gigging, both as a leader and a sideman, at clubs in the New York area...and beyond.
"Jerry Weldon is one of today's leading proponents of Soul Jazz who represents the 'bar-walkin', hard-blowing, tenor legends in our contemporary American Jazz scene." - Gary Walker, WBGO Radio
"A thoughtful soloist whose subtle swing has plenty of fiber." - Ira Gitler, The Biographical Encyclopedia of Jazz
"When it comes to tenor saxophone sounds, Jerry Weldon has one of the biggest, and warmest, around." - The Star Ledger
