Standard Fare - Featuring Daniel Karp

A lot of musicians these days can play fast and furious, but many of them can't play a simple melody. On this album, I pay homage to some of the classic swing tunes written over the years that have stood the test of time (which is why they're called standards!) This album is a tribute to the great Dr. Dan Karp, a pianist who taught me everything I know about how to appreciate the lyricism in a well-structured song. The tunes we perform are timeless jazz pieces, which range from the 'old school' rendition of 'Cute" to a fresh new twist on 'Blackbird' by Lennon/McCartney. The quartet is swinging and the music is groovin' hard, so sit back, relax, and enjoy the soothing sounds of the guitar, while I accompany my musical mentor, veteran pianist Dr. Dan Karp.
