A Few Words By The Artist
FEW WORDS BY THE ARTIST
was first introduced to Don Varzé’s music in January, 2001 when Don
hired me to play on one of his demo sessions. A few months after the
session the Varzé brothers, Don and Ron approached me with the idea of
recording a jazz CD of Don’s original music for commercial release with
me as the featured artist. Needless to say, I jumped at the opportunity.
The reason for my interest in this project is that I was very impressed
with the high quality of Don’s music. His melodies are strong and well
crafted, each tune has a distinct character and his harmonies are sound
and a joy to solo over.
I would like to take this opportunity; therefore, to thank Don and Ron
Varzé’s for inviting me to make this CD with them.
I commend Don on his chart writing and I congratulate my fellow band
members on their excellent musicianship and awesome solos. I would also
like to point out that Barry Allen performed multiple tasks on this
recording project and as usual, performed each task beautifully. Thank
you Barry for your outstanding contribution to our project. The CD
