ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Jazz singer Patrick Arena’s new CD “ Night and Day” is a feast of sensual sounds: From
the mellow brazilian flavor of the title track and ‘ Moonlight’ to the churning rhythms of
his original song “How Could I Not Love You?’ With this new recording, Arena
celebrates his 40 years in show business.

‘Night and Day’ is the singer’s third CD release on his own label Arenamusic. This time
out, jazz guitarist Mark Lucas serves as both musician and producer. Several tracks
feature Mr. Lucas’ emotional guitar work in duet with Mr. Arena’s voice: Echoing the
spare sensuousness of Arena’s first acclaimed CD ‘Night Cap” with pianist Andy Monroe
which was called "Simply stunning" by the Bay Area Reporter, San Franciso.

‘Night and Day’ balances the quiet moments with an undulating rhythm section featuring
the cream of the crop of Pittsburgh’s jazz instrumentalists: Skip Peck on piano, Tony
DePaolis on bass, Mark Lucas on guitar and Alex Peck on drums. The intricate interplay
of these musicians flows naturally. This group of musical comrades also appeared on
Arena’s second CD "Captured Alive," Audiofile noted “Captured Alive finds him at the
height of his craft.” Jazz Review.com said "Patrick Arena has a hell of a voice".......

Night and Day begins with Cole Porter’s most perfect ‘Night and Day.’ All of the other
songs clearly are rooted either in lyric or mood to the night or the day time. Pictures of the
sun dappled ‘Belvedere’ hotel and the light sparkling on the sea alternate with the cool,
deep touch of ‘Temptation’ at midnight.

Arena chose to include a handful of original tunes. Inspired by the ‘Body Electric
School’, Dan Martin and Michael Biello crafted the song ‘In My Body’: the powerful life
message is of acceptance and joy within. ‘Moonlight’ holds a special place in Patrick’s
heart: written by deceased songwriter Tom Briggs. The lyric ‘has moonlight almost
forgotten me?’ is all the more heartbreaking with the knowledge that Briggs succumbed
to AIDS in a hospice in southern New Jersey.

Included also are originals by Patrick. His fan favorite ‘Barefoot Boy’ and Where Have
You Been All My Life? written with lyricist Michael Sandwick.

Finally there is a gold medal selection of great standards including the tipsy “I’m Always
Drunk in San Francisco’ , ‘It’s a Most Unusual Day’ and the album closer, Patrick and
Mark’s delicate version of Michel LeGrand’s “What Are You Doing the Rest of Your
Life?’

‘Night and Day’ is dream music for anytime of the ‘Night and Day.’
