Includes 13 original tracks written by Glaser, plus his interpretation of George & Ira Gershwin's Love is Here to Stay and Jerome Kern's Look for the Silver Lining.
In a 1987 interview in the Los Angeles Times, Glaser said, “I grew up listening to pianists like Oscar Peterson and singers like Mel Torme, and I love the old songs by such masters as Gershwin and Porter.”
Glaser said he first began singing and playing piano when he was 5. At age 12, he played his first professional gig -- with musicians twice his age -- at the Camp Pendleton officers club. He continued performing with various other jazz groups through high school and college. However, after obtaining his law degree in the late 1960s, he concentrated on building his law practice -- although he did not stop playing the piano, and he moonlighted as a jazz musician. He produced his first recorded album in 1980. In the early 1990s, Glaser and his family moved to New Jersey, and he gave up his law career to establish a career as a jazz pianist, vocalist and composer.
