ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
LINER NOTES

In all the time I have been singing songs from the Great American Songbook, I have always wanted to record them with a first-rate big band. In the past, I have been blessed by recording with some of the finest jazz musicians in the country in a small group setting. At last, I have fulfilled a dream by recording with a top-notch big band conducted by Tom Garvin. Tom is the current music director for Jack Jones and for 19 years wrote arrangements for Doc Severinson's Tonight Show Band during the Johnny Carson era. He also has conducted for Grammy winner Diana Krall. Tom wrote the arrangements for the five big band songs performed on this project.

I am so pleased to have worked with Jerry Floor's Salt Lake City Jazz Orchestra. They played with great energy and technique, and as you will hear, they really swung. Jack Jones declared, after working with this band at the Salt Lake City International Jazz Festival, this was the best big band he had worked with in 25 years.

Guitarist Ron Anthony, who was with Frank Sinatra for the last nine years of his career, is featured in the small group selections included on this collection of great songs.

I hope you enjoy listening to these recordings as much as I enjoyed singing them.

--Jack Wood

BIOGRAPHY

Jack Wood, a familiar face on the Southern California jazz scene (as both concert producer and singer), has performed and recorded with many of the finest and best-known jazz musicians in the Los Angeles area.

Since his early days with the Ronnie Brown trio, which included musicians John Clayton on bass on Jeff Hamilton on drums, Jack has devoted himself to performing and recording the great standards. His most important influences have been Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Mel Tormé and Jack Jones. He is equally at home singing an up-tempo jazz tune, a romantic ballad or a sensual bossa nova.

Top musicians who have regularly worked with stars such as Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Nancy Wilson, Natalie Cole and Diana Krall also work with Jack. The players often comment on his impeccable intonation and smooth, clean sound. The late Chuck Niles, a renowned DJ who has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, wrote on Jack’s CD, Baby, Baby All The Time, “Jack has a delightful, appealing style in honoring the the American songbook.” Bobby Troup, who used to come to Jack’s club dates, wrote regarding two of his songs that Jack had recorded, “Jack, thank you for singing my songs so well.” Alan Bergman, Oscar and Grammy award-winning lyricist of Alan and Marilyn Bergman fame wrote to Jack regarding his recording of their song, “Moonlight,” which was nominated for an Oscar for best song from the movie Sabrina. Alan wrote, “It’s quite a good job,” and then volunteered to send a copy of the recording to John Williams, who wrote the music for the song.

Performances for Jack have included small clubs, college theaters, large amphitheaters and jazz festivals. He has opened for Sergio Mendez and Maureen McGovern, and has appeared in jazz festivals alongside of Nancy Wilson, Jack Jones and Eddy Daniels. Jack appeared during the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City at the famous Snowbird Resort and has also entertained in Park City, Utah.

Jack’s clean-cut handsome image, his warm personal rapport with an audience and his superb engaging voice makes him a favorite among fans. He is an artist with class and style.
