New Single From Dennis Day-"Wastin' My Time"

Singer, Dennis Day's new 2017 single "Wastin' My Time" offers a familiar tale of forlorn love. His vocals on this jazzy Billy Vera composition, backed by a solid ensemble of seasoned New York City-based jazz musicians, invoke all the melodic emotional colors the singer has made his imprimatur in earlier recordings. Iconic post-bop-era pianist Harold Maybern digs into vast reservoirs of Memphis and Chicago blues and jazz phrasings to anchor the tune. Rounding out the snappy, bluesy arrangement are bassist Alex Layne, veteran drummer Billy Kaye, mellifluous tenor sax man Ray Blue, and guitarist Marvin Horne.For those who love a good love tale performed soulfully that will satisfy your appetite for a jazzy tune presented with a convincing flair for jazz's "sweet subtleties", you'll find yourself enjoying this great song and performance time and time again.The song appears on the singer's new CD Dennis Day sings Bossa, Ballads and Blues, set for release Summer 2017.
