"In my earlier career, I learned the importance of balancing the intricacies of jazz's many nuances with it's ability to reach into the hearts of many. Many of those learning experiences were with Teddy Pantelas. He is the epitome of this delicate balance"~Sean Jones - Trumpet and Recording Artist with Mack Ave Records "
Pantelas is a dexterous player, who also swings like crazy, something that can’t always be said about those who are fleet of hand...It Makes Me Glad, is first rate music from a group of first rate musicians. It is highly recommended.

“Teddy is one of the shining lights on the jazz scene. He is one
of the few who can keep things interesting in a trio format. He combines
lines and chords with a rich dark tone to make very interesting and satisfying
music." ~ Sid Jacobs , Composer, instructor and recording artist, Jazz guitarist
“His music is a reflection of his soul and the beauty, creativity, and the integrity of his mind. His utmost respect for the music is represented by the dignity of his lines and flood of musical genius. Teddy, we are listening!”~ Dave Kana, Artist in Residence Clarion University, Abersold Summer Jazz Faculty
Teddy feels it is important
as an artist to share music that "comes from the heart" and in this way
make a contribution to the art of jazz. An accomplished composer, his originals
set him apart from any other contemporary jazz guitarist.
This Tune was written for and dedicated to the Master Saxophonist Joe Lovano. I used my Stratocaster and double tracked, so its "two tracks of Strat". I will be adding more music soon.Thanks for listening and supporting my music -Teddy P
