ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
LINER NOTES

When I was a young boy, I remember riding in my Uncle John's car on the way to a Los Angeles Angels baseball game at the old Wrigley Field.

My uncle loved music and always listened to KLAC-AM radio, which played the hit songs of the day. While we were driving, a song came on the radio called "Baby, Baby All The Time" by the Page Cavanaugh Trio. It became my favorite song, even as a small boy.

This was my introduction to jazz and the Great American Songbook. I never forgot the song and many years later I not only met Page Cavanaugh, but actually sang and eventually recorded with him.

At an early age I discovered two loves. A love for baseball and a love for jazz. I eventually became a college baseball player and high school baseball coach, as well as a singer of jazz--two dreams come true.

This CD is a combination of my favorite songs performed by the Page Cavanaugh Trio. In my teens, one of my favorite songs was "Mr. Lucky" from the hit TV series of the same name. Although other lyrics have been written to this original instrumental by Henry Mancini, Page has written what I think are the best lyrics yet. We've included that song with Page's lyrics in this CD.

The entire project has been a fulfillment of a dream for me. It has been a honor to perform and record with the Page Cavanaugh Trio.

--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.
