Beautiful Love is the debut recording by pianist and arranger Jerry Ascione. Originally inspired by big-band legends like Count Basie and Woody Herman, Ascione prepared the charts for this Sea Breeze release incorporating the more modern sounds of later-day composers like Bob Florence and Bill Holman. Ascione leads the U.S. Navy's jazz ensemble the Commodores through several originals and big-band standards including "My Foolish Heart," "Beautiful Love," and "All the Things You Are."
