Thank God For Jazz
Tony Monaco

GENRE: Jazz: Jazz Vocals

In “Thank God for Jazz” Tony Monaco (2001) the Manhattan native remembers frequent childhood visits to Harlem’s Apollo Theater, tagging along with his dad, Tom Morton, who managed Jazz orchestras like Cab Calloway and Lucky Millender. One encounter that influenced Tony’s music included sitting on Fats Waller’s lap while he played piano and sang “Honeysuckle Rose.”
