ALMOST ALONE


.

.

Like so many musicians in the time of COVID I bought a professional recording rig and learned how to record myself. Which is quite a learning curve, however it turned out to be a great education. AND the CD turned out very good with the help of my friends, thus the title Almost Alone.





THE CHAMBER MUSIC OF John Scott

Mike Vaccaro & Friends

Melodies

Here are some hits from the 40's through the 90's that I think you will
like. If at least one of your favorite songs is not here I'd be very surprised!
I am joined by two great singers ANNE WALSH and MARGIE GIBSON as well as
the wonderful musicians on the tracks. This CD is not about me or my soloing, it's about the beautiful melodies the composers and lyricists have given us and the group as a whole who perform them.

Latin Love 

Latin Love is a compilation of Hispanic tunes from Cuba, Mexico, Central America, and South America. Also included is a Latin treatment of the American Song Book favorite, "But Beautiful". As always, we offer original compositions, this time by Gerry Schroeder and Howard Dubin. We also have 2 tunes from the Tango king, Astor Piazzolla, and a tune from the Choro king, Pixinguinha. Unique treatments of each tune bring a lot of interest to this recording.
