1978 Gap Mangione – Suite Lady

Suite Lady is an album by Gap Mangione, released in 1978.

Gap Mangione (born July 31, 1938) is a jazz pianist, composer, arranger, and bandleader from Rochester, New York, United States.

Mangione was born and raised in Rochester; according to the Sicilian naming convention, he was named after his paternal grandfather Gaspare Mangione, who was born in Porto Empedocle, Sicily in 1883 and emigrated to the United States in 1906. Gap’s younger brother is Grammy-winning flugelhornist Chuck Mangione. Members of a music-loving family, both Gap and Chuck took up instruments. In 1958, they started performing together as the Jazz Brothers, eventually recording three albums for Riverside Records.
