Album Notes
Mariah Picot has released her debut jazz vocal CD, "Notes on the Bridge...", with the Bill Peterson Trio. She describes it as, "jazz influenced art songs with a spiritual perspective." The thirteen song CD is comprised entirely of Mariah's original music & lyrics, except for five compositions written by Bill Peterson. Recording was done in Tallahassee, where Peterson is a professor of jazz studies at FSU. The rhythm section was completed by two wonderfully gifted Boston musicians who are graduates of the Berklee College of Music, Jeff Denson [bass] and Ronen Itzik [drums].

Jon Hibshman, co-owner of Vision Quest Gallery in Panama City, did the painting for the cover. "I gave Jon a list of all the visual images in the lyrics and he came up with this incredible painting, " says Picot. "The songs are really "scribblings" on the journey, as the title suggests. Peterson had the perfect sensibility for them with just the right balance of sensitivity and virtuosity. " The CD is filled with heart, soul, humor and depth that comes from a lifetime of experience in the arts.

Kiki Misumi - Jazz Musician

A beautiful pure hearted work of art! Rare in this world of commercialism. I hope it finds the the audience that appreciates it as much as it deserves!


Mariah's voice - sexy, earthy, haunting
I love the complexity of Mariah's voice - sexy, earthy, haunting. Mariah Picot and Bill Peterson make one marvelous CD.

Jazz Improv vol 5 no4

....Posessing a clear soprano voice, Picot glides fluidly with unexpected intervallis leaps, heightening the spontaneous nature of her performance..... Picot's album represents a love letter that she's graciously surrounded with the sounds of enthralling mainstream jazz.

George W Carroll/The Musicians\' Ombudsman

Vocalist Picot & her trio under the tutelage of Bill Peterson, deliver the goods
It's a wonderful rumination to ponder what God & spirituality can spawn for such an animated jazz project. Vocalist Picot & her trio under the tutelage of Bill Peterson, deliver ''the goods.'' This is a group that constructs their music in a controlled, deliberate manner. Picot offers her vocalise with an exciting logic, embracing her music & interpretations with wit, perception, and contemplation. She has the joyful luck (a little writer's editorializing) to lilt on the platform of great
jazz piano which Bill Peterson has created for the project. Peterson & his trio add a rich coloration plus some inventive & cohesive improvisational lines to the combined effort. It's warming to know the group lives & performs in Florida (as I do). It was a pleasure to get to ''know'' these fine artists through my review.

Creating Miracles

Notes on the Bridge takes you on a journey of discovery, from beginning to end. The music, the words, and the vocals, inspires you to reach deep within to a place you've always known exists, and to connect to your dreams again. A truly reflective piece - an unforgettable piece - of music for this time.

Perfect for the connoisseur
Mariah Picot with the Bill Peterson Trio
Notes on the Bridge
Mariah Picot, vocals; Bill Peterson, piano; Jeff Denson, bass; Ronen Itzik, drums; Unity of Panama City Choir; track 8.

This is a debut album for Mariah Picot; she wrote all the lyrics and music for eight of the thirteen tracks; Bill Peterson wrote the music for the other five. They describe the album as "Jazz influenced Art Songs with a Spiritual Perspective". The music is Jazz orientated, pianist Bill Peterson, a professor of Jazz Studies at FSU, has a light, inventive flowing style; he can cut loose when required, he flashes the keys briefly on "Pearl Diver". There are a lot of words in the songs, and they need to be listened to. The group members are sensitive to each other, an absolute necessity for this kind of involvement. The bass and drums never overstate. "Lucid Blue" has a very slight involvement from the Unity of Panama City Choir, it seems a pity to go to all the trouble and not develop it further. There is some fine interplay between Picot and Peterson on "Stay Awake", an unusually upbeat number. A proud, heroic and prayerful finish with "Until Then" ends the CD with just the right feeling. Picot and Peterson create a poetical tapestry that often loosens itself from any grounding in the tonic; one is left suspended as a child might be in a different world that does not require bringing to earth. This is an album put together with care, love and considered observation; perfect for the connoisseur.
