This is the 3rd Album soon to be released with a combination of orchestra and strings and small group to give a nice spectrum of settings Charlie Parker recorded in. “Moonlight In Vermont” is the opening song of this album and is one of my favorites and has that classic 50s string feel of the era. The small group track which is next is “lady be good” and what a ball playing with this Rhythm section that included really tasteful pianist Don Abney along with jazz legends Oscar Pettiford and Kenny Clarke real stars from the Golden Age of Jazz who played extensively with Charlie Parker. The last track “i’m in the mood for love” is a beautiful arrangement slightly more contemporary that i am sure Charlie Parker would of loved to blow on as i did.

Glenn Zottola has all that any jazz musician could ever ask for, incredible ears, and plays always in the best of taste at the drop of a hat . We should all aspire to this level of virtuosity.
