Jim Porcella: Antonio & Jon

Antonio & Jon is easy listening in the positive sense of the term. Jim Porcella’s smooth vocals, singing essentially the greatest hits of Antonio Carlos Jobim and Jon Hendricks, glide along effortlessly. With a voice somewhat reminiscent of Mel Torm , Porcella also offers his own tributes to the two songmasters he celebrates here. The quietly, but swingingly resourceful Jon Wheatley Sextet provides lots of ideas for fellow Bostonian Porcella to play off.
