Upcoming release Glenn Zottola inspired by Sinatra

New upcoming release inspired by Sinatra here is the story. In the 80s I did a television special for Mary Tyler Moore with Sinatra. My partner drummer Bobby Rosengarden and I flew from NY to LA to do the show. Bobby called Doc Severinsen as he was close friends with him from doing the tonight show in NY together and Doc loaned us the entire tonight show band for the show. It was one of the high points in my career playing for Sinatra with the tonight show band Tommy Newsome sitting next to Snooky Yound in the trumpet section and those incredible arrangements by Nelson Riddle and Quincy Jones etc that played themselves. This album is all the classic Sinatra material like this great arrangement by Quincy Jones. I finished this album 3 months ago and just got it back from mastering tonight. It is all on Alto sax my concept on both horns has alway’s been to sing through the horn and emulate the great singers.
