Chris Mondak's debut solo CD Eternal Youth features eight original compositions. Two of the tracks are musical tributes to Chris's grandfathers: "Abuelito" honors Chris's maternal grandfather, who passed away in August, 2018, while "Be Honest with Yourself" is Chris's update of a 1955 composition by Chris's paternal grandfather. The CD's other six songs, including the high-flying "Du Wow" and the mesmerizing "Dream Catcher," reflect Chris's feeling of connection to jazz standards, and his drive to write new tunes with harmonies and melodies that capture the genre's classic spirit of Eternal Youth.
