O’s Notes: Tony takes the Radio Show format to present these dozen classics. The music fits the mood, the style and time period of this format while remaining fresh today. It is classic swinging big band with a first class balladeer. Joe Piscopo introduces each of the songs in true DJ form, a nice touch. The program is a combination of standards and originals. DeSare gets help from guests Jane Monheit on “Bizarre Love Triangle” and Bucky Pizzarelli (g) on several tracks notably their old-fashioned arrangement of “Lazy River”. They do a blues arrangement of “All or Nothing At All” with Brian Charette on the B3 and Dominick Farinacci on trumpet. This is a good collection of blues and ballads in a novel format.
