ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"I never thought about doing anything else. I always knew my life would be about singing and performing in some way. While my girlfriends played with their dolls, I was busy working the imaginary audience behind my mirror".

When she started piano lessons at age 6, Sandy's lifelong partnership with music began to form. She remembers that at the age of 12 she heard Brubeck's "Take Five". "For me that was 'the' moment. I found the music so intriguing. It was like nothing I had ever heard. Don't get me wrong, I was just a kid and I loved my rock and roll, but I managed to listen to jazz whenever it was around". Sandy ultimately chose the classical route for training in voice and piano, but left the coziness of those hallowed halls after a few years. She decided to hit the clubs and begin to practice her craft, her way. She never looked back. She ultimately did receive her BA, (graduating Magna Cum Laude).

Sandy has sung and continues to sing for, and with, some of the best in the business. Jazz legends, presidents, entertainment giants, and some of the best road bands traveling today. As a young woman, she had a chance audition, and started working with, a local big band. This eventually opened the doors to steady work with the Dorsey, Goodman, Riddle and Pops big bands.

She travels the mid-Atlantic region, focusing on the tri-state area, with everything from small jazz combos all the way to 17 piece big bands. A regular performer in the major jazz rooms in New York and New Jersey, Sandy Sasso is one of the busiest singers in the business.

Her newest release "All My Men" is being heralded by industry "insiders" as one of the finest jazz vocal albums to emerge in years. This is a "must have" for any collector of fine jazz vocal albums. Sany Sasso has a truly amazing voice, with style and substance. She is definately Grammy material.

...at the very top of her game.
What a great time I had listening to Sandy Sasso’s newest release on Charlie Boy Records - All My Men - for the first time ! Oh, and did I mention the second time ? Just as good. The third listen was even better, and on and on. What a treat ! As with her earlier recording Mixed Grill, she’s selected great material and the best musicians. It’s difficult to say which songs I enjoyed more, since they are all so delicious.

Much of All My Men was arranged by Sandy and Brad Mandigo who often plays piano as a member of her trio on jazz club dates. The album includes Onaje Allan Gumbs on piano, Marcus McLaurine on bass, Harry Allen - tenor sax, Bob DeVos - guitar, Desi Norman - vibes, Joe Ascione - drums, and the legendary drummer and vocalist Grady Tate. It’s hard to believe that she’s not worked with all of these talents before because the playing is so first class and a perfect fit with her breezy style.

The CD begins with a wide-awake and sexy rendition of Everything I’ve Got Belongs to You with Sandy having lots of fun with Lorenz Hart’s clever lyrics and Richard Rodgers’ melody. Latin rhythms are most evident in Michael Franks’ Antonio’s Song and especially in a bossa nova version of Love for Sale. Additional lyrics by Miss Sasso seem to suggest that this time the song’s protagonist might well be a boy. I think Cole Porter would have approved.

There’s an appropriately bluesy Black Coffee, a sweetly sentimental Song for My Father, and cheerful Dat Dere, written by Oscar Brown, Jr. and Bobby Timmons. Two of the compositions were written by Sandy Sasso - the title song All My Men and Just Whistlin’ Along, in which she both sings and whistles better than Bing Crosby ever could. Rounding out the superb collection is Louis Jordan’s rocking Saturday Night Fish Fry and a haunting treatment of Tin Man, a Neil Young classic which has never sounded better.

Finally there’s the old American Songbook standard Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, written by Harold Arlen and Ted Kohler for a 1931 nightclub review. It’s fitting that the centerpiece of Sandy’s newest effort is her wonderful duet with Grady Tate. Tate’s singing continues to be as graceful and harmonious as ever, creating an inspired pairing of two professionals at the very top of their game.

A most creative sound of some classic jazz tunes, and well performed by Sandy Sasso. Put this CD in your collection.

As on her Mixed Grill album, All My Men is packed with the tastiest of jazz standards. But the real highlights are the songs Sandy wrote herself--they swing alongside of Porter, et al. If you like to hear songs SUNG...then buy this cd!
