Liner Notes
1 A Day At The Office
I was staying in a flat for a few weeks near the Wimbledon tube station in London. Each morning as I did my trumpet warm-up, I saw Londoners walking to the tube to go to work. As they headed toward their office, I was in my “office,” playing the trumpet. I love the energy of this take with Pete’s guitar solo and stalwart playing from Boris and Willard.
2 Houston Street
A few years ago, I lived in a building that overlooked Houston St., enduring major road construction project on that street. The sound of jackhammers, trucks beeping, backhoes, sirens, and cabs blowing their horns traveled up to the 18th floor where I lived, sometimes in the middle of the night! This piece reflects that cacophony and raw energy from that time.
3 Time Is Prophet
When we don’t know how something is going to turn out, we’ll know at some time in the future what happens. Eventually, we have an answer to that which we seek. Boris’ wonderful solo starts the piece.
4 Margaret Hassan
This the name of courageous woman who worked for UNICEF to help children, and stayed on during the early days of the second American occupation of Iraq. She was kidnapped, and later found dead. I felt compelled to write this piece In her memory.
5 The New Cigarette
Cigarette smoking used to be a popular means of distraction from being alone with one’s self. It seems that the cell phone has replaced the cigarette for that purpose. Check out Boris’s playing!
6 For You
I wrote this for my wife for our wedding day and dedicated this piece to her. Willard sets up a nice groove!
7 Urban Crawl
This piece was created on the train at a time when New Jersey Governor Christie decided not to fund a much needed additional rail tunnel into Manhattan. The vamped chord progression supplies the harmonic impetus for solos.
6 Sun Rays
Feeling the warmth and joy when outdoors on a sunny day is the vibe of this piece.
7 Renovation
A melody in a modal style over a 12 bar blues, was my goal was to create some ambiguity over a blues chord progression.
