and do laundry to.
Etta Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra, Glenn Miller and now days into Michael Buble and the previously mentioned Harry Connick Jr. are some smooth sounds that soothe me.
I’m telling you….my laundry gets done this way. Otherwise, no one in the house would have clean socks.
Ladies and Gentlemen of Burbank, we have a smooth jazz singer in our midst. Dave Damiani is a Burbank dad who’s debut album, Watch What Happens, is being released this week. The kids and I have been listening to it for a few days and they are actually asking for specific tracks now. This album is fun, smooth, entertaining and also makes laundry easy to get done. Dave sings some great cover songs like Tempted and Raspberry Beret…yup, I just said Raspberry Beret. You haven’t heard anything until you’ve heard a little Prince in the tune of Jazz. Dave saves room for his original “The World Is Against Me.”
Originally from Cherry Hill, New Jersey, and a graduate of Temple University in Philadelphia, Dave and his wife (having met in line at Ralph’s in Hollywood) live in Burbank because they “love the community and the school system.” He actually said he “can’t ever see us moving from here.” Yeah, I get that.
This Wednesday Night, Hard Knocks Records, will be hosting The Debut Album Release of Watch What Happens at the world famous Catalina Jazz Club on Sunset in Hollywood. Dave will be accompanied by his 17 piece orchestra in what I’m thinking will be an unforgettable night.
Hollywood…Sunset Blvd…Catalina Jazz Club… Crooner Dave Damiani.
You’re in for a treat.
Not to mention, you’ll get the album while you’re there…meaning the laundry can get done a little easier next week.
