Glenn Zottola- Miles Davis Remembered

Miles Davis summed up jazz with two names Louis Armstrong and Charlie Parker. The two key factors here that are “signature" for Miles is that straight no vibrato approach to open trumpet and the delicate use of the mute. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making this music. -Glenn Zottola!

Miles Davis RememberedReview by Jazz Weekly
Quality
One of the real joys of music is when you discover an artist who is a kindred spirit. Glenn Zottola is one of those guys you’re gonna love. He’s been around since Moby Dick was an anchovy, playing the tenor, alto and trumpet (!) as a sideman for the likes of Benny Goodman, Lionel Hampton, Frank Sinatra and Peggy Lee. Yeah, he can’t keep a steady job. He looks like he should be behind the counter at your local deli asking how much prosciutto you want. He’s a swing-to-bopper at heart, with a tone on all three instruments that is as soothing as a mint julep.

He got my attention last year with a tribute to Charlie Parker CJ 32 with Strings, and another tribute to Clifford Brown with Strings CJ 6. How many artists today could pull THAT off?!? Now, he’s just released five, count ‘em, five new ones. Dig in!!!

The first one is Miles Davis Remembered, CJ 39, which must be an oldie as it includes Stan Getz /ts, Jimmy Raney /g, Hal McKusick / fl-cl, George Duvivier /b and Ed Shaughnessy / dr in supporting roles. This is a subtle session that spotlights the gentler and romantic side of The Dark Prince. Remember his famous quote that he never plays ballads in concerts because he likes them so much? This disc gives evidence. Whether on Harmon mute or with the horn open, Zottolla glows warm embers on “Jupiter” and “Spring Is Here” while the obscure “Beta Minus” is a major plus. Look for this one!
