I’ve Never Been in Love Before
While We’re Young
You Are There

You Are There (2006) / Jerry Vezza has tried something on “You Are There” that is so old that it is new. He took himself and his three band mates into a studio, gathered them all into a single room, and actually recorded an album with the players feeding off each other face-to-face, just as they would at a gig. What you get is a feeling of spontaneity and togetherness that is so sorely lacking on many current recordings. Vezza, accompanied by frequent cohorts Frank Noviello on vocals, Tom DiCarlo on bass and Glenn Davis on drums, consistently demonstrates why he has developed a loyal following. / BridgePin Records

You Are There

In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning
The Old Country

Two for the Road (2001) / Two for the Road was recorded in 2001 in NYC. This album was inspired by Jerry’s love of Sardinia, Italy where he performs every year. The beauty of the music reflects the area’s captivating views and pervasive serenity. Three wonderful musicians are featured: Tom Sayek on drums, Rick Crane on bass and Bob Hanlon on sax. A very special track on this CD is a song Jerry wrote for his son entitled, Waltz for Alexander.

You Are There

I Never Knew
Weaver of Dreams
With a Song in My Heart

With a Song in my Heart (1996) / The prime mover of this record was Peter Madsen – an amazing pianist and friend. It was he who encouraged, guided and assisted me through the entire process. He also introduced me to an incredible bassist, Peter Herbert, with whom he records and tours. The contributions of both Peters of this project are immeasurable. I am currently taking lessons from two very special
teachers – my children Julianna and Alexander who remind me daily just how much fun it is to play. At the deepest level of love, from which every endeavor flourishes, stands my wife Diane. She has nourished my creative nature allowing it to grow and express itself as never before. / Hermes Records
