A word or two about this CD:
I am a jazz pianist with varied musical interest-an unapologetic eclecticist. I’m specifically interested in music that is unique without being novel, accessible but not unchallenging, and serious in the long run but playful on the way. This CD I feel is exactly these things. A rundown of the tunes:
1. Wabash II-This John Scofield tune is probably the only jazz tune built on the changes of the Wabash Cannonball, or at least the only one I know. The melody is all at once catchy, tricky and swinging.
2. Don’t Let Me Down-This classic Lennon/McCartney ballad gets a slightly
Jarrett-ish take, with spatial, open soloing and gospel inflections.
3. Black Nile-This Wayne Shorter standard gets a deconstructed hip-hop treatment.
4. Let Us Break Bread Together-This old spiritual has always been a favorite of mine. We invoke a few of our heroes in this one, including both the Jarrett and Meldhau trios.
5. Alone Together-A great standard. I start things off with a bouncy intro, and we come out swinging from there.
6. A Day In The Life-Another great Beatles tune. We try to catch the somber mysterious mood of Lennon’s half of the piece. In the middle, we get into some Joe Jackson/Ben Folds type territory.
7. Clint Eastwood-The first time I heard this Gorillaz tune on the radio I knew I had to play it. A friend was listening to this and said, "You guys may be jazz players, but this tune flat out rocks!" I hope you agree. At Paul and Chris’ prompting, I become some sort of McCoy Tyner/Joe Sample/Cecil Taylor hybrid.
8. The Nearness Of You-I like to end a CD with a ballad. Everybody likes a little cuddle time.
This CD could not have been possible without the help of two tremendously talented players-Paul Culligan and Chris Fitzgerald, as well as a brilliant and dedicated engineer-Phil Stirgwolt.
