ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Jamusica is a wonderful Jazz club in Sapporo, Japan. This was the first jazz club I visited after moving to Sapporo 2013. I sat in with a nice little duo playing that night. I also became friends with Jiro Saito, the owner and manager of Jamusica that night. Jamusica has an open, relaxed feel and nice big windows just behind the band looking up at the sidewalk above. It is a wonderful Jazz club for both performer or listener.
The first tune,"Don’t Slip” is appropriate for Sapporo, a city covered by snow and ice for at least 4 months a year! Enjoy the blues! "Calypso Baby” is my first Calypso tune, I love the rhythmic uniqueness of Calypso music. I’m just getting into it as a style and it fits so well with Jazz (Plus it makes me think of nice warm weather). “George’s Tune” is composed for my friend George Polley here in Sapporo. “Ja-Music”, dedicated to Jamusica and Jiro Saito is a song I composed specifically for this sextet with Charlie Parker on my mind. “Miley” is based on a jazz standard written by Johnny Mandel ( originally composed for a movie). The final track, “The Good Ones” is a song I composed with group improvisation blended throughout the melody.
