ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Curtis Robinson plays the guitar as if his life depends on it. And it does. If not his biological life, then without question his creative life is inextricably bound to the instrument, the instrument he began playing when he was in elementary school. Toay the native Chicagoan picks his guitar strings in a way that shows, since then; he has grown as much musically as he has physically.

Curtis is on his way to stardom. He now headlines at some of Chicago's most popular clubs, including Andy's Jazz Club, Pops for Champagne, ETA theatre and The Jazz Showcase.

From time to time certain great ideas take hold of and move across the
landscape of our minds, planting seeds and leaving impressions. This is
something which we all are familiar with as individuals. We have also
seen the transformative power of an idea whose time has come sweep
through societies and cultures. Obvious examples relate to the various
movements for human dignity and empowerment which involved whole
societies, yet which have become symbolized in the life of an
individual. So, we have the civil rights movement in the United States
with Martin Luther King jr.; the satyawgratha movement for Indian
independence with Mahatma Ghandi; the anti apartheid movement in South
Africa symbolized by Nelson Mandela; the Velvet Revolution in
Czechoslovakia with Vaclav Havel; and countless others. The power of
these movements, if we are to believe the men and women who stood at
their centers, did not come merely from the strength of their numbers,
or the logic of their arguments, but from a deeper source. This short
book by Curtis Robinson speaks from that source.

This work is a testament to a timeless idea/experience which is gaining
in popular awareness. That idea/experience has been termed "flow" - as
in "go with the flow", or to be "in the flow". It is a wonderful way of
expressing the experience of being moved, directed, and inspired by a
current of the Higher Life. Throughout history this flow has been the
territory of mystics, poets, artists, and musicians, but has not been a
focus for the bulk of humanity who tend to deny their own creativity
and spirituality. Curtis, who is a recognized jazz musician, for years
has trained himself to be sensitive to the flow of musical ideas. Even
with his long experience, it came as a surprise to him a few months ago
when he found himself moving in a new direction. Without warning a
stream of stories, conversations, profound sayings, and poems were
continually welling up in his mind. Although he had written before,
always it had been music. This time it was words crying out to be set
on paper.

The material in this book is the result of one month of Curtis going
with the flow. It is offered knowing that what one can do, all can do.

May these words awaken you to your own inner voice, and move you to
step into the stream that flows to the highest good.

I got the chance to hear this artist live the first time i ever heard of him. His music touched a note of pleasure that only good music can. When you find yourself tapping your foot,moving your head, or just got to get up and move. I got a copy of the album that night, and had the pleasure of meeting the man behind the music. I became a fan immediately! It's amoung my favorites in my collection of hits!

Long Overdue
A sublime listening adventure from a long time hidden gem in the Windy City. Curtis flows through his own narratives, originals and a few standards with the ease and grace of the Master that he is. For those fortunate enough to know him personally, these pieces are crafted in the spirit that is Curtis Robinson. Enjoy.
