This is a rare appearance by an all-star group of musicians.
The making of our new CD, “Jazz for Svetlana” was a labor of love for all concerned. The guitarist Steve LaMattina and I have been playing together off and on for about ten years. Our good friend Svetlana, who is a wonderful classical pianist, really loved hearing Steve and I play as a duo without an accompanying rhythm section. She also kept telling her husband Yuri how much she loved our music. Yuri decided to give her a very special surprise birthday present. He called me one day and said that he would like to produce a duo album of Steve and myself. All he wanted was the first CD to give to Svetlana for her birthday. After that he said we could promote and sell the album wherever and however we wanted.
So here we are. The CD has been well received by everyone who has gotten an advance copy. It was a pleasure to record. All tracks were done in one take to make sure we maintained a spontaneous feel throughout, and we’re happy to report that Svetlana loved her birthday present.
