Album Notes
"Conversations" is a duo recording by tenor saxophonist Harry Allen and pianist Rossano Sportiello featuring the music of famed lyricist Johnny Burke (most noted for his long-time collaboration with Jimmy Van Heusen). Titled "Conversations" because of the intimate nature of the music… a conversation between two musicians who strive for beauty in the music.

Features the great jazz standards "What's New?", "It Could Happen To You", "But Beautiful", "Moonlight Becomes You", "Like Someone In Love", "Swinging On A Star" plus many more.

Harry Allen has recorded over 40 CDs as a leader and frequently tours the United States, Europe and Asia performing at the world's best jazz festivals and jazz clubs.

Rossano Sportiello has recorded prolifically and is in demand as both a leader and a sideman, touring the globe constantly, headlining at jazz festivals, concerts and jazz clubs.

What the critics say:

This aptly named album demonstrates the magic that results when two outstanding and simpatico jazz players engage in musical dialogue.  Allen and Sportiello have been playing together frequently, mostly in a quartet format for about two years, and the empathy that has developed between them is immediately evident to anyone who hears this disc.  Both are among the best current players on their instruments, and the pairing of the two a match made in musical Heaven. - Joe Lang
