ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Webster’s Dictionary defines simpatico as “being on the same wavelength”. Listening to the duo performance of Adrean Farrugia and Joel Frahm, it’s fair to say this definition doesn’t quite go far enough in describing their sympathetic, and completely “in-sync” playing.

It’s always special to find another musician with whom you share a common musical view. Like finding a good partner in any part of life, they can read you; they can “finish your sentences”; they understand you. This describes the musical and personal relationship of my dear friends, Adrean and Joel.

I’ve had the pleasure of performing with both Joel and Adrean since 2008, first as members of my quartet, and more recently, my sextet. There was an instant connection between them, and that personal and musical connection has grown and blossomed as they’ve had the opportunity to play and tour together over the past 10 years.

On Blued Dharma, their connection is abundantly evident in their intermingling and complimentary improvisatory lines on Adrean’s original compositions as well as the standards that they perform. They are constantly playing with, around and through each other, but never on top of each other.

Right from the first notes of the opening title track, the blues drenched and soulful playing of both players is on display. This is followed by an original and creative performance of Cherokee, a wonderful example of the 2 musicians’ incredible dexterity and creativity on their respective instruments. Over the following 6 tracks, Adrean and Joel flex their musical muscles on 4 more Farrugia originals as well as an alternate (universe) version of Cherokee and a swinging take of the great standard, “Nobody Else But Me”.

It’s always thrilling to be invited into somebody else’s creative experience, and feel music being performed with intention, attention to detail and great love. That’s what Blued Dharma feels like, and I hope you feel the same thrill that I do listening to these two wonderful musicians, and wonderful people creating gorgeous music together.
