As one of New York's premier bands, The Deanna Jones Orchestra has performed at thousands of special events and celebrity functions. With fans ranging from Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones to Jimmy Buffett and Geraldo Rivera, you know that they must be something special to appeal to the sophisticated listener. It's not difficult to understand their success; collectively, the credits of individual band members reads like a veritable "who's-who" of the music industry.

"Very First Dance" features new, all-original music in a wide variety of jazz styles. Written by vocalist/bandleader Deanna Jones and producer/keyboardist Mark Falchook, this CD evokes of all the sensations and nuances of a new romance. The lyrics range from the touching and poignant "Astounded" and "Ocean Eyes", to the funny and playful "What If" and "I'm Satisfied", (which they actually performed at Douglas' and Zeta-Jones' wedding). "Food For My Soul" gets two different treatments on this CD. Deanna explains, "Originally it was written as a sultry latin ballad, reminiscent of the early stages of a romance, when you're discovering each other for the first time. But then Mark suggested that we try it with more energy and fire (complete with burning sax solo), and it turned out to be equally compelling. Rather than having to choose between the two, we decided to include both." Also of special mention is "Gravy", which brings to mind the arrangements of Steely Dan. "Musically, that was my homage to Donald Fagen, whose songwriting has always been an inspiration", adds Mark. Deanna's insightful lyric reminds us to appreciate those things that are truly important in life, and that everything else is just "Gravy".

Deanna's vocals are lush and seemingly effortless, with a warm intimate quality as smooth as a fine wine. Falchook's arrangements are a perfect match; supportive and elegant without overpowering, casting Deanna's vocals in the perfect light. Whether your taste is for traditional swing or smooth jazz, funky or romantic, latin or big band; The Deanna Jones Orchestra's "Very First Dance" is an endlessly creative adventure that deserves a home in your collection.
