Perantoni's performance world is one of perfection and never missing a note – which explains in part, his hesitation to get out of his comfort zone and record a jazz CD. The jazz mentality is a bit looser and more forgiving as it’s spontaneous. Well, the results were exceptional!!
‘‘Tricrocism’‘ – This is a jazz classic with a tricky, left-handed melody. Dan and the guys navigate it perfectly and he plays a swinging, solo right out of the box.
‘‘Days of Wine and Roses’‘ features a great melodic duo by Jeremy and Dan, followed by inspired solos by Pat and Dan. Jeremy takes a wonderful bass solo and then we bring it home.
‘‘She’s Real’‘ is Dan’s tribute to his wonderful wife (and great cook) Judy. Dan’s beautiful treatment of the melody followed by his solo speaks volumes.
‘‘All of Me’‘ starts with Dan and Steve Houghton (drums) playing as a duo. Dan has such a great feel for the melody while providing a fat groove. Dan launches into a wonderful ‘walking bass line’‘ supporting the first part of Pat’s solo, going back to his Dixieland roots.
‘‘Blues For DP’‘ - composed for Dan by NEA Jazz Master David Baker. This track starts with Dan playing an intro by himself utilizing his incredible technique, perfect time feel, and multi-phonics, finally setting up the band with a funky vamp.
‘‘Portrait in Black and White’‘ opens with Dan and Steve playing the beautifully haunting melody. The band joins in later for a lush, bossa nova treatment of this special work.
‘‘Don’t Get Around Much Anymore’‘ swings from start to finish!
‘‘Can’t Go Home Again’‘ is a beautiful ballad that the great Chet Baker helped make famous. Dan again shows that he can play a melody like no other. Steve Allee plays a wonderfully sensitive solo as well.
‘‘All The Things You Are’‘ receives a fresh Latin treatment by Allee.
