Traditional gypsy swing, jazz, and latin music played in contemporary styles.
This self titled release is a collection of Ferrara’s favorite classics from the gypsy swing, jazz and latin jazz repertoire. Orchestrated in a trio setting consisting of two guitars and bass, lead guitarist Zach Ferrara interprets music from the masters of these genres in his own style. As to be expected in this realm of music, a large emphasis on exciting improvisation is found throughout the entirety of this album. Out of a desire to incorporate as much diversity in how these songs are played led to recording a mix of up tempo swing pieces such as “Swing 48,” to latin jazz compositions such as “Wave,” a funk take on “I Can’t Give You Anything But Love,” a finger style ballad version of “Nuages” and many more unexpected surprises. All songs were recorded at his home studio in the Catskill Mountains, just outside of New York City in the Summer of 2017.
