Tony Dancy – Some Kinda Jazzy Poppy Jazz

Tony Dancy is since his 16th year in music business. With his first band Tony’s Tygers he had his first hit Little By Little. Later Tony founded Quiffy, who stormed the Orange County nightclub scene. He started his solo career with the album A Hopeless Romantic (1999) followed by Midnight Dancing (2004). These sophisticated adult pop tunes offered love songs and danceable disco.

Some Kinda Jazzy Poppy Jazz is Tony’s first step into the smooth jazz realm. The album was produced by Joe Turano, who is also the featured artist on saxophones, keyboards, flute, accordion, percussion and vocals. Tony performs guitars, percussion, strings, vocals, Eric Hervey bass guitar, Reggie Bordeaux and Burleigh Drummond drums, Novi Novog viola.

First track on the album is Dizzy Pears named after a delectable dessert created by Tony’s chef cousin, Amanda. In the lead is Joe Turano on soprano sax presenting a lovely melody decorated with some improvisational excursions and counteracted by Tony on a rocking guitar.
