Michael d’Addio’s fans are waiting with bated breath to listen to his latest iteration of Smooth Jazz Music
Cotacachi, Imbabura, Ecuador — In today’s world of music that so often reflects jangled nerves, chaotic events, raging pandemics, fractured relationships, and fearful apprehensions, Michael d’Addio’s new musical venture into the world of smooth Jazz, titled ‘With Michael After Hours’ just hits different. This album embraces fans like the calm, welcoming embrace of an old friend.
The amazing story behind the extraordinary new album ‘With Michael After Hours’ takes place in a small town at 8,000 feet on the upslope of a 17,000 foot volcano in the Andes Mountains of Ecuador in South America: an 80 year-old, expat American retiree with an equally-extraordinary background had been living there for nearly 14 years when the COVID pandemic came calling. To Michael d’Addio, the problems caused by the pandemic were only the latest in a steady flow of turbulent and chaotic events plaguing the world for decades.
From a life-long habit of relaxing with chill-out music at the end of a stressful day, Michael decided to share this with other like-minded folks. By drawing on his lifetime of singing and his 30 years of production experience in the Hollywood film business, he gathered together an orchestra of 18 local, very talented musicians and, despite the formidable obstacles presented by COVID quarantine observances, went into the town’s professional recording studio, one musician at-a-time and, over the next year and a half, put together ‘With Michael After Hours‘ — an easy-listening, smooth jazz cornucopia of ‘standards’ from the heyday of ‘The Great American Songbook‘. All the album’s songs are beautiful tributes to the likes of Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole, Nancy Wilson, Elvis Presley, Tony Bennett, Andy Williams, Rosemary Clooney, Vic Damone and the whole tribe.
