Boys’ Night Out

July 15, 2014 | Comments Off on Boys’ Night Out

“Boy’s Night Out” is Michael Treni’s fourth jazz release since he rededicated himself to music. Working in partnership with his equally gifted producer, Roy Nicolosi, Michael has gradually assembled The Michael Treni Big Band, a jazz orchestra loaded with heavyweight players. Boston tenor sax legend Jerry Bergonzi is the best-known player, but the 16-piece band features an array of veteran cats.
 Sal Spicola (alto sax, soprano sax, flute, piccolo, clarinet), Craig Yaremko (alto sax, flute, alto flute, clarinet), Jerry Bergonzi (soprano sax, tenor sax), Frank Elmo (tenor sax, alto flute, clarinet), Ken Hitchcock (tenor sax, flute, alto flute, clarinet), Roy Nicolosi (baritone sax, bass clarinet, clarinet), Bob Millikan, Vinnie Cutro, Chris Persad, Bill Ash (trumpets & flugelhorns), Matt Bilyk, Bob Ferrel, Michael Treni (trombones), Philip Jones (bass trombone), Charles Blenzig (piano), Takashi Otsuka (bass), Ron Vincent (drums), Rick DeKovessey (percussion), Faina Agranov, Mingee Kang (violins), Michael Alas (viola), Jeffrey Szabo (cello)

“When it comes to Jazz my favorite style is big band and I take Count Basie’s band as my benchmark. I think I have now found a new benchmark in The Michael Treni Big Band and their new album Boys Night Out…there is a world-wide audience looking to listen to a great big band and this could be the contender for that crown.”
John M. Peters, Musicwatch, The Borderland UK

“The arrangements soar, the soloists sizzle, the ideas flow, and the band is a winner!”
George Fendel, Jazz Society of Oregon’s Jazz Scene

“Writing for big band like it’s no effort at all, the gang enjoys the hang and the jazzbo vibes are flowing from the top shelf. Tasty, contemporary big band that is note perfect throughout and a real wake up call for genre fans looking for the real deal.”
Chris Spector, Midwest Record

“Whether writing his own songs or reworking some of the classics, Treni and his band are a force to be reckoned with… If you are a fan of big band music this is an easy decision. Buy Boy’s Night Out as soon as you can.”
John Neudorf, Sea of Tranquility
