The musical path Pete has chosen for Cheek To Cheek veers away from jazz and into a world of pure and perfect romance. The songs are classics. Yet Pete embraces each one as though it has never been played before. The result is as smooth and dreamy as a summer night. Set against the mellow, low end sound of five trombones, the quality of Pete's clarinet becomes enticingly beautiful. Never before has his haunting sound so elegantly explored the secret of implicity. Each rich note slides effortlessly into your heart. And into your feet. Because as Pete says, "This is music for dancing. You know, the good kind. Close dancing."

Recorded at Bradley's Barn, Mt. Juliet, TN

Dear Mr. David Mekalian
Many thanks for the nice covers of Pete Fountain. I always like his music - but I like the modern stuff as well.
see my blog. Do you want to change links?
P.S. Where do I find the Sacramento Jazz cover?
