ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
An excerpt from the liner notes by Michael Steinman of Jazz Lives:
"This easy-going trio got together for sessions in summer 2009, with the head arrangements done by Danny. The results remind me of the finest sessions for Keynote Records in the forties or the John Hammond sessions for Vanguard a decade later - neat but inspired. Each performance was completed in one or two takes. The CD captures the kind of jazz that musicians play for their own pleasure when only the attentive customers are in the club. It's comfortable, late-evening music, from the sorrowing "Say It Isn't So" to the romping "Chicago Rhythm" and the title tune ["Cheerful Little Earful"], a perfect description of Danny Tobias' jazz."

Danny is joined by pianist Joe Holt, a familiar figure on the Eastern Seaboard, and bassist Gary Cattley, PhD, equally adept with the tuba, and appearing with the Princeton Symphony and various popular traditional jazz bands in the region.

This album is dedicated to the late drummer Tony DeNicola and clarinetist Kenny Davern. In Danny's own words from 2009: "Kenny was an inspiration. He told me what not to play, how to play in an ensemble, and how to construct a song. He could build a solo as well as anyone who has ever played. Period. Tony and Kenny were always willing to teach me and I loved every night that I had the privilege to work with them."

Recorded by Gary Cattley at Big Cellar Recordings, Bordentown, NJ
