Album Notes
Tracks on the album range from a fantasy on a theme of Scriabin (“Mother Russia”) to a musical scenario
blending the Chopinesque with a dramatic concept from Alfred Hitchcock’s Rear Window (“Where’s
Frederick?”). Explaining some of the ideas behind Grace from Persistence, Mr. James said:
“My intention as always is to find a connection to people’s hearts and minds; to paint a musical
picture with color and emotion; and, for better or worse, to unveil a discovery that is not a straight
line from point A to point B. The title comes from an idea that my longtime collaborator Bob Stark
suggested for one of the pieces on the album, and after I recently saw a film describing Native
Americans beliefs about the Saguaro cactus, the title took on a new resonance for me. Each of
these sacred Saguaros is considered to be a unique individual, surviving on its own despite
nature’s extremes. Its state of grace is achieved through indefatigable determination to defy all
odds, and the existence of this physical and spiritual icon serves as a metaphor for our
persistence in the face of the world’s many challenges.”
