ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Mary Fettig's career as a saxophonist/flutist hit the international arena at the tender age of 20 when she was asked by Stan Kenton to be the first woman instrumentalist in his groundbreaking big band. She has since continued a diverse recording and touring career, including stints with such greats as NPR’s Marian McPartland, Latin legend Tito Puente, and Brazilian icons Flora Purim and Airto Moreira.
She has recorded numerous albums in her career including her debut on the Concord Records label, "In Good Company", with Marian McPartland, Ray Brown, Peter Sprague, and Jeff Hamilton.

"Relativity" is a family affair. Her brother, Wayne Fettig, composed most of the tunes and plays piano. Her son, Scott Thompson, provides support on acoustic and electric basses, with her husband, Eric Thompson, playing drums.

The music of "Relativity" is a collection of jazz styles from swing to Brazilian, funky, and ballad styles.

Musicians on "Relativity"

Mary Fettig: Alto sax, soprano sax and flute.
Wayne Fettig: Grand piano.
Scott Thompson: Double bass, electric bass.
Eric Thompson: Drums.

This is a great CD!
I really enjoyed this CD. I love Mary's sound on this CD. Solos are short and to the point, never boring. Arrangements are very good. Definitely deserves 5 stars!

Beautiful, wonderful!!
The first time I heard this CD I ordered it (I'm an old friend of the artists' mother, she had been mentioning that her children were musicians for years, but I had no idea they were THIS good!). I'm not really familiar with jazz (this is my first jazz CD), but the music and talent is awesome. My son-in-law, a talented pianist was blown away by the music and musicians.
