ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Alphabets & Consequences captures Benjamin at his most intimate and expressive. Twenty improvised piano miniatures transform familiar jazz and folk melodies into quirky impressionist etudes bursting with both humor and gravity. The album ranges from standards (Don't Get Around Much Anymore) to spirituals (It's Me, O Lord); but the bulk of material is original improvisations full of spontaneity and life, from atonal romps like Karlheinz and Paul to the meditative simplicity of Meaningless.

Adam Benjamin’s unmistakable sound is engaging, high-flying, and distinctly his own. It crosses stylistic boundaries, borrowing from artists as diverse as Bill Frisell and Karlheinz Stockhausen, and unifies his disparate influences in a voice of Americana both plaintive and complex, as in his rich, polytonal presentation of The Star-Spangled Banner that concludes the album.

Benjamin challenges traditional notions of jazz, yet he maintains a humble and humorous approach that connects him with his audiences worldwide.
