Pittsburgh jazz pianist-vocalist David Budway has just released a tribute to another Pittsburgh jazz great, albeit one not so well known as many others.  The brother of the late (and sorely missed) vocalist Maureen Budway.  The Jazz Piano Man: David Budway Sings the Lyrics of Lou Tracey consists of 14 songs, most with lyrics by Tracey, who co-wrote songs with various individuals including Budway and Joe Negri.  Tracey, who died in 2016 after a brief illness, was a fixture at local jazz events.  The basics of his life are covered in this blog entry reporting his illness and his PG obituary.
