Fantazm


“Fantazm,” John La Barbera’s follow-up to his 2004 Grammy nominated “On The Wild Side” CD, is a collection of standards and originals inspired by something Duke Ellington once said: “… a little thing that the theme is taken from… the kind of a dream that you have about that kind of a girl… it’s called Fantazm. Featuring Pat La Barbera on saxes, with Joe La Barbera on percussion, and Clay Jenkins on trumpet, tracks include the Duke Ellington rarity “Fantazm” in his jungle jazz style; Woody Shaw’s “Moontrane;” David Raksin’s “Apache” love theme: “My Love & I,” “Kyrie,” and 4 originals by La Barbera and his brother Pat.
