Album Notes
"The idea for The Wall Street Recession Time Blues came to me when I finally got enough courage to open my retirement brokerage statement this past winter", says copyright attorney and musician(trumpet) Dennis Angel. The extremely talented members of Dennis Angel Band are David Shaich on bass, Joel Mofsenson on piano, Mike Campenni on drums, Gottfried Stoger on sax and flute and DeForest Raphael on vocals. This recording has had an immediate impact on those who have heard it. Seth Renner,a college DJ at WARY 88.1 FM said, "It's current. It's right now. There isn't anybody who isn't hit by this thing."

Terrific Big Band vocal skewers the economy
Following in the grand tradition of sociopolitical topical songs, the Dennis Angel Band’s new single (available as a download), “The Wall Street Recession Time Blues,” is sure to strike a chord with many listeners touched – in one way or another, by the economic realities reflected in daily headlines across the country. In detailing the ongoing financial meltdown & its aftermath, trumpeter Dennis Angel’s jazz ensemble have fashioned a big band-style blues tribute that’s both ironic & funny, but no less direct & caustic. Crooner, DeForest Raphael’s straightforward reading is classic vocal jazz &, given the subject matter, worthy of the Frazier Crane-like pomp with which he so appropriately informs his delivery. The arrangement is equally classic: the rhythm section of David Shaich (bass) & Mike Campenni (drums) sync expertly with the jazz chords of pianist Joel Mofsenson, as Angel & Gottfried Stoger (sax & flute) provide the kind of harmonic flourishes that make for great jazz. A triumph of composition & execution and timely as hell, “The Wall Street Recession Time Blues” by Dennis Angel Band is a terrific slice of vocal jazz.
