ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Ron Davis…very well may be the most gifted pianist in Canada."

A brilliant adventure. On his latest recording, My Mother’s Father’s Song, Ron Davis embraces both his family’s rich cultural heritage, and boldly re-engages with the jazz standard. Co-produced at the CBC with Dennis Patterson, Ron is joined on this album by bassist Mike Downes and drummer Ted Warren for a total of thirteen tracks which include Harold Arlen & Johnny Mercer’s My Shining Hour, R. Miller & O. Murden’s For Once in My Life, and James Taylor’s Don’t Let Me Be Lonely Tonight, and Coldplay’s Viva la Vida, among others.

However, what sets this stunning album apart from other “standards” albums is the unusual focal point of the album, three versions of a song about Ron’s maternal grandfather, who died in Warsaw in the 1930’s: Bal u Grubego Joska.

My Mother’s Father’s Song will move and energize you, as few jazz recordings can.
