Album Notes
Adam Shulman has been a staple of the San Francisco Jazz scene since he moved to the city in 2002. Before the move, Adam was a student at UC Santa Cruz where he studied with the great Smith Dobson and the trumpeter/arranger Ray Brown. He received his degree in classical performance under the tutelage of the Russian pianist Maria Ezerova. Currently, Adam plays regularly with Marcus Shelby in large and small group contexts and with Anton Schwartz mostly in a trio setting. He can also be seen as a sideman with countless bay area musicians and vocalists such as John Wittala, Vince Lateano, Kitty Margolis, Andrew Speight, Michelle Amador, Emmanuel Vaughn-Lee, Ian Cary, and Mike Zilber.

Adam has played as a sideman with internationally renowned artists Stefon Harris, Bobby Hutcherson and Willie Jones III and is often called when a pianist is needed for out-of-town acts.

Though his roots are in be-bop, Adam is a very versatile player and has a lot of post-bop and modern influence apparent in his playing. His main influences include Barry Harris, Sonny Clark, Tommy Flanagan, Wynton Kelly, Hank Jones and more modern players such as Herbie Hancock and Fred Hersch. Bill Evans has always been a huge influence on Adam’s playing, particularly in the intensity of his treatment of melody.

"On Second Thought" is Adam Shulman's first record as a leader and showcases his writing. All eight cuts are original songs. Adam is joined by an incredibly supportive and talented aggregation of musicians. Dayna Stephens on Tenor, John Wiitala on bass and Jon Arkin on drums. "On Second Thought" is an exciting exploration of new and fresh material that draws on a wide breadth of influences and genres.

He's live everywhere! This is beautiful tunes played by masters. I don't know what age Adam Shulman is but he's some kind of genius. Really beautiful improvised compositions. Marvelous!

Janice Murota

a fantastic CD! I heard this group live and was blown away. I find myself replaying the cd over and over again. It's more interesting every time I hear it. Highly recommend the cd and go hear Adam Shulman if he's live anywhere.
