Detour Ahead

by Solitaire Miles



This tune was written by one of my Chicago jazz mentors, swing violinist Johnny Frigo. He wrote it with his group "The Soft Winds" and it was originally picked up by Billie Holiday.
Sadly Johnny passed away before we went into the studio with this tune, but I was very blessed to be able to record this tune with Joe Vito, Johnny's long time friend and pianist. It was originally featured on my jazz album "Born to Be Blue" but I was never happy with the mix or mastering, so I recently had it redone, because it's one of my favorite ballads, I hope you enjoy the effort.

It features
Joe Vito on piano
Jim Gailloreto on sax
Larry Kohut on bass
Eric Montzka on drums


released April 20, 2017
