Album Notes
Academy Award nominated filmmaker Raymond De Felitta ("City Island", "Rob The Mob", "Madoff") is also an accomplished jazz pianist with roots that include styles such as Harlem stride, cool bop, straight ahead swing. This collection of thirteen standards from the American Songbook, all written in the pre-World War 2 era, is a swinging, nostalgic and thoughtful tribute to the melodious songs of that era. De Felitta's style is influenced by such pianists as Teddy Wilson, Fats Waller, Earl Hines, Oscar Peterson and George Shearing. In addition to the standard jazz trio instrumentation of piano/bass/drums, three of the tracks are done in the style of the Benny Goodman trio, with the bass eliminated and a clarinet added. There are two solo piano tracks as well. All in all, this one-hour collection of jazz standards will appeal to the serious jazz enthusiast as well as also providing delightful background listening.
