The Boilermaker Jazz Band would like to announce the release of their brand new CD: You Do Something To Me. The CD features bandleader Paul Cosentino on Clarinet with all the guys swinging along. Jennie Luvv contributes her trademark sultry vocal stylings, with Pianist Mark Kotishion and Paul also contributing vocals. Highlights include Ellington Classics: "I've Got To Be A Rug Cutter", "Me and You", and the always popular "All God's Chillun' Got Rhythm."

Pittsburgh Post- Gazette, May 4th, 2006:

JAZZ

THE BOILERMAKER JAZZ BAND 'YOU DO SOMETHING TO ME'

The Boilermaker Jazz Band has become an institution.

It hasn't attained the status of the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, but Paul Cosentino and the group are as polished and enthusiastic about keeping the swing flames burning as their New Orleans counterparts.

But this music isn't staid. Nor is it an ode to archival music. It's varied, featuring swinging, melodic instrument interplay, syncopated rhythms, accent beats and some old-time tail-gate trombones, especially on "I've Got To Be A Rug Cutter."

A touch of tuba would have provided the icing.

Cosentino found gold when he added vocalist Jennie Luvv, who brings a wonderful dimension to the band. She is featured throughout, alternating between the delicate "When Your Lover Has Gone" and the nuanced "Me and You," a tune originally written by Duke Ellington.

The recording swings throughout, beginning with "You Do Something To Me," a song originally written by Cole Porter in 1929 for the show "Fifty Million Frenchmen."

"All God's Chillun' Got Rhythm," features Mark Kotishion's playful piano. Demonstrating that jazz has no border, the group the completely recast "Brazil," infusing the tune with as much dissonance as the Boilermakers can muster.

Performing obbligatos behind Luvv on "East of the Sun" is clearly one of Cosentino's strong suits. And when he solos he has a steady, unflappable chain of ideas.

The group has continued to evolve since its formation in 1988 and "You Do Something To Me" is a testament to that evolution.

-- Nate Guidry, Post-Gazette jazz writer

HA!! Our piano player, Mark, loves to do that at our shows, and we thought it would be cool to let him do it on the CD as well. The Duquesne Brewery, makers of Duquesne Pilsner, Ft. Pitt, and Silver Top, went out of business many years ago........

I've heard it spinning at a few dances and I've really enjoyed it. Seems like everyone else did as well.
