JERRY COSTANZO/Destination Moon:
• “The divas have been getting all the attention the last few years but here’s a cat that knows how to swing it 50s style and could give Steve Tyrell and few pointers on how to sharpen it up to get his groove back. Working that tried and true Sinatra/50s vein, Costanzo and his swinging pals know how to grab the Vegas vibe that most of us have heard about but never were old enough to really experience. It’s not a time piece, just a good time that doesn’t try to recreate, but exist in it’s own place bringing some authenticity along for the ride”. Jazz Perspectives – Tom Hull
• “…Jerry Costanzo delivers a song with a loving nod back to the Rat Pack. I mean that in the best possible way.” “…Andy Farber's Swing Mavens puts this far above schmaltz. Maybe it’s in the subtle interactions between Costanzo and the horns. Maybe it's the cool-cat finger snap/bass introduction...” -- Mark Saleski JAZZ.com
Jerry leads his own big band The Jerry Costanzo Orchestra, and works with saxophonist, arranger, producer Andy Farber, as well as his smaller ensembles. He has worked with and continues to work with the best jazz musicians in the business such as: Steve Ash, Tedd Firth, Tardo Hammer, Neal Miner, Joe Cohn, Dave Glasser, Mike LeDonne, Jerry Weldon, Mark Sherman, Ben Wolfe, Jimmy Madison, Alvestor Garnett, Hilary Kole, Amy London, to name a few.
