A close friend, a three-time Grammy-nominated jazz artist [twice for best jazz vocalist, once as best jazz arranger], Todd Buffa, has released a new album after a decade-long hiatus from touring and the studio. During that time, he kept busy teaching, adjudicating jazz competitions, writing and singing gigs in local venues. Over the past month or so, we've been working on branding while he readies a second album and contemplates a European tour later in the year.

This first album is a collection of covers of influential jazz and rock artists, including jazz arrangements of a number of songs most of us would find familiar. Bob Dylan's 'All Along the Watchtower', The Zombies 'She's Not There', Brian Wilson's Beach Boys hit 'The Warmth of the Sun', and an arrangement of Otis Blackwell's 'Great Balls of Fire' among others.

Here's a link to the CDBaby download site and to Todd's site.

This is not a solicitation. Would simply appreciate a preview listen and would be happy to have any thoughts or brief review off-list.

Disclosure: Have been helping my friend as an unpaid, unofficial publicist and business consultant. I have no financial interest whatsoever. Just the pleasure of introducing a fine artist to my musically astute friends here known to appreciate same. Enjoy. Many thanks.
