Description:
Chasing a Dream has two meanings for me. As the title of a song I wrote, included on this CD, itÕs about looking for love. As the title of this CD itÕs about a quest IÕve been on since the age of twelve when I first listened to jazz and tried to play it on the piano. Sixty-one years later, after playing with everyone in New York from Henry ÒRedÓ Allen to Shorty Baker, Doc Cheatham, Buck Clayton, Eddie Condon, Vic Dickenson, Roy Eldridge, Bobby Hackett, Max Kaminsky, Red Norvo, Pee Wee Russell, Maxine Sullivan, Buddy Tate and Joe Venuti, IÕm still at it. And I couldnÕt be luckier now than to be playing a steady five days a week on the unique jazz solo job that Barry Singer created at the Park Avenue Plaza between 52 nd and 53 rd Streets, and to have been doing so for the past eighteen years.
