Liner Notes
Do It- Composed by late South African jazz musician Chris McGregor, this energetic and buoyant interpretation pays homage to McGregor’s rollicking, dynamic band of the 1960s and 70s, the Brotherhood of Breath.

Warm Night, Blue Eyes- Musically, this tune is inspired by the Brazilian style baião, a style originating in the northeast of Brazil. Thematically, this song is inspired by, and dedicated to, the wonderful woman in my life, Jaclyn. The feeling and melody of the tune conjure memories of beautiful balmy nights on a beach with a loved one. Composed by Cameron

Amphibian Hymn- The world is headed to a state of irreversible environmental damage that will probably destroy mankind, unless we, as a species, can find a way to live in harmony with our planet. Written by Cameron, the Amphibian Hymn is an environmental anthem that we hope will draw attention to our pollution and destruction of the earth.

Cajun Blue- Penned by Australian violin master Mark Russell, this interpretation blends Cajun fire with the penetrating, haunting sound of the indigenous Brazilian flute, the pifano, played saxophonist, flautist, and percussionist Jorge Continentino.

African Village- This arrangement for three saxophones and drum set of the timeless McCoy Tyner tune utilizes West African rhythms to propel Tyner’s simple yet captivating melody. Arranged by Cameron

Two is One- When asked to comment on the distance between jazz and classical music, Thelonious Monk effectively ended the conversation by stating, “Two is One.” In the case of World Junk, many is one. Rather than making distinctions, we sought to make inclusions, and simply make music. Because, after all, we are the result of our inspirations and influences, which cannot be quantified but rather are expressed in the spirit of music. Composed by Cameron
