Your Piano Playing
I have been a musician for the past 40 years and appreciate all types of music.
I know with out a doubt that you can sing! But through other musicians that have met that have worked with you, I have learned that you are hell of a piano player. You are an entity unto yourself.
Have you ever recording a CD featuring yourself on piano? And if so where could I get a copy to add to my collecton to add to my Sinatra Family Music Library?
These music ideas always come into this Italian head of mine. If possible, and I know this is pushing it. I would love to be in the studio should you decide to record this.
I also have associated with some of the greatest players in New York and I would love you to meet them. You probably know them already, they could give you a new kind of feel to the backing you deserve. All are great sight readers espcially the drummer by the name of Dan D'Imperio (who is the heart beat of the band.) Once you hear these guys play you won't have to be convinced about anything. I would love to see you record this in NYC.
You can listen to a sample of this bands playing at the following web site link: http://www.whodat.com/audio/dansextet/d'imperio.htm
They are all veterian musicians and have trained on the road with a wide variety of big bands from Tony Bennett to Maynard Fergurson.
Man I would love these guys backing you, there are no cripples in this outfit. You derserve the backing with your talent.
Don't get me wrong, I do not wish to put down the musicians you use now who are also the greatest but I feel this would be a new sound for you consider while playing piano.
Remember I'm not pushing but just suggesting. But, even though I am a nobody to you and you must get a million crazy ideas a day. I am a musician and my main concern is always the music.
Hope you have time to read this.
Sincerely and respectfully yours,
Two Shots of Happy, One Shot of Sad
