Jerry Costanzo and his Septet (Tedd Firth, Piano; Jennifer Vincent, Bass; Jimmy Madison, Drums; Joe Cohn, Guitar; Mark Sherman, Vibraphone; Andy Farber, sax; and Mike Carubia, Trumpet) just completed a very successful series of performances at Feinstein’s Lowe’s Regency and played 2 sets at Kitano Jazz to a packed house.
Mr. Costanzo also just released a hot, new swinging single, “Can I Steal A Little Love", which is currently airing on Long Island’s favorite radio station, WHLI 1100AM, as well as Radio stations worldwide. He updates the song “Can I Steal A Little Love” with a new arrangement by Andy Farber and backed by a 16-piece Big Band, adding a fresh vocal interpretation to Phil Tumienello’s lyrics.
Although he has the support of a full big band, through the wonder of multi-track recording, only 4 musicians actually played on the session. “Can I Steal A Little Love” showcases the fine talents of Andy Farber on all Saxophones and Piano, Brian Pereschi all Trumpets, Andrew Williams all Trombones and String Bass, with Jonathan Mele on Drums.
Mr. Costanzo’s latest CD, “Can’t We Be Friend's?” from Daywood Drive Records, includes favorite standards such as “East of the Sun”, “Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps”, and “Penthouse Serenade.” All were featured on broadcast and internet radio nationwide, as well as New York’s own WHLI 1100AM, where he was spotlighted as “Artist of the Week.”
His first CD, “Destination Moon” as well as “Can’t We Be Friend's?” can be purchased via iTunes, Amazon and most digital distributors. “Can’t We Be Friend's?” is also available for purchase via Daywood Drive Records, http://shop.daywooddrive.com/
