With an extraordinary music career that has spanned over 35 years, Louis Cortelezzi is now embarking on a new era with the upcoming release of his very first solo CD “Only Child”. On Only Child, Cortelezzi has returned to his first love, the saxophone: “It’s the first time in my life I have allowed myself to work on only one instrument, the tenor saxophone, and I’m exploring it on an entirely new level. When you combine the playing with what we can do technologically, it’s very exciting!” The process of discovery is ongoing, but what Cortelezzi has learned to this point is gloriously showcased on Only Child, which features 10 vibrant and masterfully recorded songs, with guest musicians that include: John Siegler on bass, Frank Vilardi on drums, Sammy Figueroa on percussion; Russ DeSalvo, Larry Salzman and Ira Siegel on guitars; Bill Heller, Irwin Fisch and Robbie Kondor on electric piano, and more! Produced by John Siegler and Louis Cortelezzi, and mixed and mastered by Larry Alexander. When looking back on his career thus far, Cortelezzi likes to break it up into 3 distinct “phases”.
