Larry Gelb
Composer, lyricist and pianist who introduced I'll Remember Love The Larry Gelb Songbook Volume I is now expressing his wonderful talent through jazz. The new jazz album entitled Song For Pickles is a compilation of twelve great new tunes composed by Larry Gelb. “Pickles", a funky bossa is a track dedicated to the Gelb's Jack Russell Terrier Pickles to commemorate her on her journey from Arkansas to New Jersey on the puppy bus, which was written in '60s Blue Note style.

Song For Pickles is classic 60's jazz quartet music with beautiful solos by Dick Oatts on flute/tenor/soprano/and alto sax, Matt Wilson on drums and Cameron Brown on bass creatively add to the almost orchestral texture of the groups interaction. Broadway vocalist Amy Justman sings on several tracks with lyrics. Oatts' solos range from Rollinesque on “ON THE HUDSON" to Shorterish on “WALTZ FOR MADAME" CHALOFF to spiritual Coltrane on “THE CAVE OF MACH PALEH." On “THE HONEYMOONERS NOW" 'track Mr. Gelb plays a swinging Sonny Clarkish-Ed Nortonish piano solo.

Larry Gelb's Song For Pickles is available now on cdbaby.com.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
