ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
David Caffey is nationally recognized for his leadership as an arts administrator, academic, and jazz educator; dedicating much of his career (40+ years!) to these efforts. While widely celebrated in this role (he is in the California Jazz Educators Hall of Fame and served as President of the International Association for Jazz Education), I imagine many have been relatively unaware of the depth of his background and skills as a composer/arranger (he is not only extensively published with charts played by school ensembles throughout the US but led and maintained a professional band in Los Angeles back in the 90s) – an oversight that “Enter Autumn” should quickly remedy! For here, he has handpicked a crackerjack ensemble of seasoned jazz artists, most hailing from the musically rich Denver/Northern Colorado area that he has called home since 2005, to render his music as he has long envisioned. As a result, this is not a typical debut recording. . . . . . a Beaujolais with sparkling moments but no lasting notes to savor. This is the work of a mature writer – whose clarity of thought and intention, whose deft manipulation of line, color, and density, and whose thoughtfulness of purpose is finally on a stage that artfully showcases it. Oh . . . and by the way, did I mention . . . . it swings!! Oh, does it swing!!!
