Album Notes
Jerry Velona is a Boston area singer, songwriter musician and has released five albums of original and cover songs under his own name. His songwriting defies labels and spans a musical range from rock, funk, classic soul, country to classic and contemporary jazz. His distinctive vocal style and wry lyrics please those with an ear toward distinctive musical adventures of high quality.

Mozart is an original composition about a pet rabbit who gave Jerry's family great pleasure. It was written in particular for his daughter Nina and sung by her in the original demo. After playing it for several of his musical collaborators, Jerry was encouraged to put a professional vocal on the track and release it for the children's music market and lovers of authentic Dixieland jazz with a touch of whimsy.

The track features a collection of top Boston area musicians including Jesse Williams on bass, Billy Novick on clarinet, Tim Ray on piano, Marty Richards on drums and the superb vocals of Debbie Pierre. It also features legendary drummer and percussionist (and Jerry's uncle) Ted Sommer on percussion and sound effects.

Although Jerry doesn't perform on the track, he wrote and arranged the song as well as the lyrics. "I'm hoping that some kids and their parents might enjoy the song and as a result become exposed to one of the classic styles in American music," he said.
