As a singer, songwriter and instrumentalist, Chazz has recorded and performed with artists as talented and diverse as Michael McDonald, Christopher Cross, America, Chaka Khan, Gregory Hines, Sheena Easton, Marilyn McCoo, John Tesh and Chuck Mangione to name but a few.
He can also be heard singing the title theme to NBC's syndicated hit sitcom "Saved By The Bell".
Chazz's latest CD is entitled "My Therapists Couch."
"My Therapist's Couch"... Freudian?... Jungian?... Psycho babble?... Hmmm?
"My Therapist's Couch" is a "therapeutic listening experience" (oh, really?) of original vocal tunes that offer the listener, a little bit of country, acoustic and electric pop, some rock and roll, and even a little taste of Brazil!
Featured friends on the "Couch" include jazz masters Jim Fox (nylon string acoustic guitar) Bob Sheppard (soprano and tenor sax) and Mark Hatch (flugel horn). Also my Mike McDonald bandmates for years, Bernie Chiaravalle (electric guitars) George Perilli (drums and percussion) and Tollak Ollestad (keyboards) brought their genius to the "Couch" sessions, as did LA percussionist extraordinaire, Bryan Brock.
Stepping up to the mic and "singin' real purty" are Nashville friends, Diana DeWitt (vocalist w/Neil Young) and the multi talented (stellar singer, songwriter, engineer, guitarist, producer & co-pilot on this one) Mark Stacy. Add in the "mixpertise" of Nashville engineer John Albani and presto.... instant CD!
Oh yeah.... I almost forgot.... I sang this and that, wrote the songs, (two are co writes) played basses, guitars, and various keyboards, hit some stuff.... you know... the usual "group therapy" bit.
"My Therapist's Couch".... straight jacket entirely optional!
Where the heck is my Prozac anyway? (Just kidding.... I meant Zoloft)
In summation dear friends, consider this...... "sometimes a CD is.... just a CD"!
PS: Dig the fabu "therapeudic" artwork by Meg Zival Fox..... Relax. Listen. "Now tell me about your childhood"......
