ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Chicago’s FLIPPOMUSIC has presented the unique, original jazz of Dave Flippo since 1992 when it introduced Chicago to its "global jazz" world fusion with two CD's on Southport Records: Tendrils of Light and Ganesh. Since then, Flippo's development as a singer has spawned two additional CD's of vocal compositions, The Heart is Strong and, presently, Tao Tunes, to be released in November 27th, 2011.

Tao Tunes returns to Flippo's world-theme with the setting of ancient Chinese texts, the Tao Te Ching in a range of styles that reflects his musical travels and experience. Full of timeless observations and wisdom as well as energy and humor, the CD contains 10 different styles, including a number of Latin and jazz grooves, funk, ambient and rock and also contains a number of extensive arrangements. The ensemble has played throughout the Chicago area at the Taste of Chicago, Southshore Jazz Festival, Chicago Symphony “East Meets West Festival” and artist series at every area College.
For thirty years, The Tao Te Ching has been a central force in the life of Dave Flippo since he first discovered the texts in his early 20’s in college. Its message has helped form his view of life, his relationship with people and his approach to music.
Flippo notes, “As I’ve studied cultures the world over, I keep finding the blending of the shaman and music. Music is used by many to teach, to sooth and even heal, and that is very much a part of how I’ve approached this project, this time in a much more direct way than before. ”
Flippo’s earlier global jazz compositions attempted to “glue together” the peoples of the world and celebrate their endless variations on a theme. This project, Tao Tunes” is Flippo’s journey to his own spiritual core – the Tao - and the joy and reverence with which he approaches these texts is apparent in the craft and personal attention found in each musical setting.
