ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In his senior year in high school, Dennis Angel had to decide between going to Julliard or a general liberal arts college followed by law school. Although he has never regretted his decision to become a lawyer, the trumpet has remained an important part of his life.

During his four years in high school he took private lessons from the esteemed teacher William Vacchiano, who was at the same time giving lessons to Miles Davis. With his brothers, Robert (keyboards) and Steven (drums), cousin Neal (guitar) and friend Kent (sax), a band they formed played on the Ted Mack Amateur Hour. Brothers Bob and Steve later formed the band 3½ which went on tour with Herman’s Hermits. Steve also recorded with Jimi Hendrix and did an album with Noel Redding.

To help pay for college and law school, Dennis played in the Catskill Mountains in the summers. Through the years he has kept up his playing at local clubs and restaurants and charitable events. More recently, he has teamed up with three long standing very talented New York professional musicians, David Shaich, bass, who performs regularly at The Cotton Club, Joel Mofsenson, piano, credits include “I Love My Wife”, “Dreamgirls”, “played with Barry White and Tony Orlando, and Mike Campenni, drummer, who has performed with Gill Coggins (pianist with Miles Davis), Ted Anson and Gordon Edwards (from the band Stuff).

The six songs on this CD represent jazz trumpet favorites from the 1920s to the 1960s originally performed by such trumpet greats as Louis Armstrong and Miles Davis. We hope you enjoy our interpretation of their classic jazz pieces. I would like to dedicate this CD in memory of my parents, Morris and Roslyn, and daughter Ilana. I would like to thank my wife Linda and daughters, Stephanie, Michele and Rebecca, for their patience with my practicing and ………..with my playing.

Terrific Big Band Vocal Skewers the Economy!
Following in the grand tradition of sociopolitical topical songs, the Dennis Angel Band’s new single (available as a download), “The Wall Street Recession Time Blues,” is sure to strike a chord with many listeners touched – in one way or another, by the economic realities reflected in daily headlines across the country. In detailing the ongoing financial meltdown & its aftermath, trumpeter Dennis Angel’s jazz ensemble have fashioned a big band-style blues tribute that’s both ironic & funny, but no less direct & caustic. Crooner, DeForest Raphael’s straightforward reading is classic vocal jazz &, given the subject matter, worthy of the Frazier Crane-like pomp with which he so appropriately informs his delivery. The arrangement is equally classic: the rhythm section of David Shaich (bass) & Mike Campenni (drums) sync expertly with the jazz chords of pianist Joel Mofsenson, as Angel & Gottfried Stoger (sax & flute) provide the kind of harmonic flourishes that make for great jazz. A triumph of composition & execution and timely as hell, “The Wall Street Recession Time Blues” by Dennis Angel Band is a terrific slice of vocal jazz.
