- Midwest Book ReviewReview by James A. Cox
- Heavenly Swing!!Review by Big Toots
A truly gifted musician of Herculean abilities, Zottola steps up brilliantly on both trumpet and saxophone – and nails both. That’s no easy task. His melodic and improvisational stylings on the trumpet are spectacular as he shades the great Louis Armstrong. One can easily tell that Zottola is an attentive student and “ear” of the Armstrong legacy. Blowing all-to-the-wall, he soars high and low (“Jubilee,” “I Can’t Believe that You’re in Love with Me,” “After You’ve Gone”). Simultaneously, his alto work channels both that other trumpet-sax genius, Benny Carter and Bebop great, Charlie Parker (“Yardbird Suite,” “Whispering”). Pianist Mark Shane is absolutely ideal in this wonderful Swing vein (“Whispers in the Dark,” “If I Had You”), displaying obvious salutes to Teddy Wilson, Earl “Fatha” Hines, et al. There’s elegance as well as heat here, too (“Polka Dots and Moonbeams”). Drummer Manaitt is shrewdly “there but not there” as he supports but never intrudes on the swingfest – and, festive it certainly is.
While The Classic Jazz Trio is salutes “Jazz Titans,” with this heavenly recording the appellation certainly could also apply to its very mighty performers.

- Jazz Titans: The Classic Jazz TrioReview by Simon Sez
Although the music on this CD may not seem old enough to be “classic jazz” since it is from 1991, the playing is so brilliant that it could have been considered classic five minutes after it was played. It is taken from a concert and had never been released before. Glenn Zottola is heard on trumpet and alto while joined by pianist Mark Shane and a quiet drummer. Shane will remind some of Teddy Wilson in this setting while Zottola sounds like himself with hints of Louis Armstrong. His playing on a surprisingly hot version of “If I Had You,” an emotional “Memories Of You” and “Jubilee” shows just how major a musician he was at the time.
Simon Sez: Remember trumpeter Glenn Zottola? The Classic Jazz Trio (CJ02) by the Jazz Titans has plenty of exciting swing from 1991.
