Album Notes
I have lived in LA since 1978. Originally, I am a native of Cleveland, Ohio where I studied with the great jazz pianist Bill Gidney.

In the 80's I got a fair amount of session and sideline work. I worked in an area of the business dealing with source music cues.

In the 90's I found steady long-term solo piano work in hotels. In addition, I did and continue to do lots of private affairs.

Like most muicians I have had to wear many hats to survive and I believe I bring this experience to recording projects.

What I really like about recording solo piano is the explorative possibilities I'm offered.

Also, I can be very spontaneous, and that's when I do my best work.

In my opinion this CD "Blame It On My Youth", represents the best which I'm capable at this time, at least until the next project.

I have been influenced by many artists. Some that come to mind are Bill Evans, Red Garland, Ellis Larkins and of course Bill Gidney. I believe these influences come through.

Hey Jerry! Sorry it took so long to say how much we love your new CD - especially YOUR original compositions! Marla forwarded Lydia's e-mail to us so I thought I'd check out your website. By the way, can you give us info on creating a website? We have a web address - and we want to have a web page designed (Dick is also in headset repairs as well as sales). Take care - love, mar

Cool Jazz with a twist of Zimmer....
Great stylings on some familiar tunes, Jerry has put his signature on melodies we all love...And his original piece, "The Long Way Home" proves that he can write his own stuff too....If you love Cool Jazz Piano, this is the CD for you, the only thing missing is the Martini!

GREAT STYLE! FRESH..never loses the melody/just loose and free.
GREAT STYLE! FRESH INTERPRETATIONS...phrasing is perfect, he never losses the melody/ just keeps it loose and free. I LOVE IT!
