I love to record songs. Although I focus on the bass, I like to write songs and play other instruments like the drums, piano, guitar as well as my long lost love, the bassoon. I've played with a lot of musicians over the years but below are some of the recordings that I've played on. Courthouse was recorded at each musician's apartment around Boston in 2009 along with Song For Jennie. Chicken Every Night was recorded with Oooh La La! on A Royal Flush in Autumn, 2019. Haley's Song was recorded with Oooh La La! on No Dumping in 2014. Mad World and Ambience for Brandon were recorded in Nashville in 2020.
AMBIENCE FOR BRANDON
I released Ambience for Brandon as one single album with no song breaks as an ambient piece for my friend, Brandon. Each song is a reflection upon different places and times in my life that have become the backdrop of my personal story. I hope it can be enjoyed while focusing on daily tasks or introspectively in the evening with a glass of wine.

OOOH LA LA!
We recorded No Dumping in Albany, NY on a weekend in early 2014. Always so much fun to record with my family. Everybody sings a song or two and we have a good lunch. My brother, Alex Rizzo sang on it, my dad, John Rizzo played guitar, my cousins Andrew Sardella and Todd Sardella played the drums and keyboards and I played the bass. The videos on youtube were all shot by Todd's Daughter, Anne Marie Sardella and I edited them.
