O’s Notes: Denise Mangiardi has a storied history in music that includes playing guitar, piano, singing, arranging, recording and arranging across genres and with large ensembles including arranging for string orchestras. She brings it all together on Brown Book with Strings from the Slovak National Symphony Orchestra. She doesn’t stop there, also inviting Jerry Bergonzi (t-sax), Mark Soskin (p), Jay Anderson (b), Brian Seeger (g) and Tony Dagradi (s-sax, t-sax) to her party! And it’s an enjoyable party of ballads with vocals from Mangiardi. Among the best are “Castle in the Sky”, the soft tones of “Waves”, ”Horn Song” and the blues based romance of “Day Time Kind of Girl”.
