O’s Notes: Guitarist Pete Smyser assembles a fine quintet to perform some of the music from the Harry Warren Songbook. You most likely don’t know Harry Warren but I am sure you know his music. The 3-time Oscar winner wrote “Lullaby of Broadway”, “Jeepers Creepers”, “You Must Have Been A Beautiful Baby” and many more. Larry plays the lead on most tunes with Larry McKenna (sax) and Tom Lawton (p) sharing the load. Madison Rast (b) and Dan Monaghan round out the rhythm section on An Affair to Remember, a long overdo celebration of one of America’s greatest songwriters.
