Tom Szczesniak - Waltz For Bill

"Waltz for Bill" was recorded over the last 3 years (2008-2011) with some of Canada's finest jazz musicians and singers.

The album was recorded in Toronto and features a mix of material from Standards to original compositions by Szczesniak.

About the album, Tom had this to say:

"We made an attempt to cut no corners and at every stage of the production, we stuck to that concept. The last step, (mastering) was an incredible experience. Meeting and working with mastering legend Bob Ludwig at Gateway Mastering and DVD was an experience that Tom will never forget. We hope that you enjoy."

This album marks the first time that Tom has recorded an album as a leader as in the past his work has been more as a sideman and composer for film and television.

As a sideman Tom was a first-call session bassist in Toronto for many years and in this capacity played with artists including Lenny Breau, Bobby McFerrin and Joe Williams as well as numerous pop acts and beyond.

His work for film and television has won him numerous SOCAN Awards as well as an Emmy for his work on the "Beetlejuice" cartoon.

This album is a great first debut for Szczesniak and you will not be disappointed.
