Album Notes
Molly Flannery's distinctive touch on the piano, her melodic improvisations, her ability to groove in jazz, latin, and Brailian idioms as well as arrange compose, and lead ensembles have made her a major player on the highly competitive Boston jazz scene. After studying composition, improvisation and theory at Yale, Molly began her performing career in Kyoto, Japan in 1981 where she appeared frequently at local clubs playing rock and jazz. In 1983 she left Japan and eventually settled in Boston where she studied jazz with Harvey Diamond, Ran Blake, Charlie Banacas, and Kenny Werner. Soon after she became the keyboardplayer for Cosmos Factor, the popular world beat dance band, with whom she appeared regularly at Ryles and on WERS Radio's Gyroscope. The group was nominated for Best World Beat Band at the Boston Music Awards during that time. Then she moved on and formed the Molly Flannery Quintet, playing such popular Boston jazz venues as The Willow, The Western Front, the 1359 Club, and Ryles. The Quintet's music began popping up quite often on jazz radio programs such as WGBH's Eric in the Evening, and Harvard Radio's Jazz Spectrum. When their CD, "Slow Dance at the Asylum" was released in 1999, it received wide air play and high praise from jazz critics, musicians, and listeners.
