O’s Notes: Frank Potenza is a swinging guitarist that makes everything sound easy! He owes a lot to his mentor and friend, the late Joe Pass for who this album is dedicated. The first three tracks are Pass originals and the rest are classics that he recorded at various stages in his career. What makes this more than a dedication is the inclusion of the supporting musician’s on Joe’s For Django album! John Pisano (g), Jim Hughart (b) and Colin Bailey (d) haven’t lost a beat and together with Potenza they make this a memorable tribute!
