Album Notes
The arrangements, make a small group sound, at
times, like a large band. Jerome Kern’s “The Song Is You”, a merry-go-round of harmonic brilliance
“Tenderly” was Joan and Tony's wedding song. The horns emulate organ chords, while Tony’s exceptional
clarity provide great meaning for the lyrics.
“Polka Dots and Moonbeams”, Cardillo’s bass solo makes one think of Eddie Gomez' sureness and depth.
“I Had the Craziest Dream”. Sinatra with Harry James would have profited from the
lovely ensemble horn emphasis. Tony’s long note and a trumpet trill end the song memorably.
Tony told me that the words
“I like New York in June” in the song “How About You” remind him of the
many important people who have their birthdays in June, including Joan, daughter, granddaughter (all sharing
June 11), and many friends. Tony is once again to be noted for his precision during the duet with guitarist Lou Messana on
“When Sunny Gets Blue” —a song Tony performed for the composer’s wife and daughter, to their delight.
“Stella by Starlight” was the tune that required
the most "takes". It is also the most highly
swinging selection on the CD.
The penultimate “I’m in the Mood for Love”
features Billy Heller’s interpretation of “Moody's
Mood for Love.” It still sounds fresh 60 years after
its introduction.
A rubato introduction begins “You Stepped
out of Dream.” Frank sets a latin background
while the horns provide figures. Tony is specific
with the words, after which Weldon solos, and
then—that third of the triumverate of great drum
southpaws after Stan Levey and Charlie Smith,
and Long Island’s answer to Buddy Rich—Frank
Bellucci provides a solo that thrills. Al and Frank
set a rhythmic point of reference for Tony to take
the song out with great horn backing, bringing
this tribute to Joan to a close.
