This section needs expansion.

Award winning baritone saxophonist Gary Smulyan teams up with Dominic Chianese (who played Uncle Junior on the popular HBO series ''The Sopranos'' and Johnny Ola in ''Godfather II'') for a delightful excursion through Neapolitan melodies. The songs on this recording are all drawn from the tradition of Canzone Napoletana from the Naples region during the late 19th and early 20th century. Dominic has a beautiful singing voice and is featured on half the tracks. This is an must-have album! The arrangements are refreshing and the instrumentation is very unique. Smulyan once again defies the stereotypes of the baritone sax with his beautiful, flowing playing.

Ali Ryerson, who along with Holly Hofmann and Frank Wess participated in Flutology in 2006, came to him with the idea to record an all-flute big band titled Game Changer.
