We first heard from Dyno Project earlier this month upon the release of the debut single “Dyno’s Gumbo”. The project is led by Bob “Dyno” DiNozzi, a veteran musician and producer from Boston, MA. With that inaugural track he introduced us to a Jazz/Pop project which sprung from Bob’s decades-long career of creating and collaborating with musicians around the world.
Since the 1960’s the multi-instrumentalist DiNozzi has worked from Boston to Brazil and all points between. He has performed and written for countless Rock, Pop, Blues, Jazz and Country acts in that time. For the new Dyno Project, Bob has brought together some of the best musicians he has met in his travels and recruited them to perform his own original Jazz/Pop compositions. The debut single was a classic instrumental trumpet groove, a-la Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass. For his new track, Dyno is taking us back to the era of the Great American Songbook.
“The Sum of My Days” is a classic piano Jazz trio crooner. This time he is staying in the producer’s chair. Although he wrote the song himself he asked three fellow Bostonian musicians to record it. Steve Heck (Vox & Piano), Brad Hallen (upright Bass) and Christian Northover (Drums) deliver a smooth and sincere performance of this heartfelt love song that is equal parts 40’s Jazz and 70’s Pop ballad.
When I heard how beautifully this trio was performing this tune, I simply had nothing to add. Kept it as a pure jazz trioBob DiNozzi
The song is a short, simple and beautiful little number in which the singer imagines reaching the end of his days and looking back to realize that it was the love he shared with his significant other that made it all worthwhile.
