Album Notes
"I met engineer, Nick Joyce in November 2003 at a benefit my band played at Boston's World Trade Center. Nick worked for the event's sound company and it turned out, engineered at his own studio in Weymouth, MA. For a few years, I had been wanting to record a piano/vocal album.

"I wanted to capture - - document, if you will - - the sheer glee of vocal soaring with piano. Including drums was a sentimental afterthought.

"Multiple variables challenged our studio sessions. Nick and I started talking about what might be possible. I got out of the way and Nick cuddled up with the music. With Our Compliments is the result." Patricia Adams, bandleader & vocalist

Nick's experience includes work with Miles Davis as production manager/monitor engineer between 1982 and 1987. He was studio technician for Decoy, You're Under Arrest and Tutu, Grover Washington Jr. (FOH engineer 1990) and John Scofield (FOH engineer/broadcast engineer/tour manager 1989-1996). These are the most notable. Nick has been Audio Designer and FOH engineer for the Litchfield Jazz Festival for the past 3 years. Read more about Nick on his website,

Be Careful, It's My Heart was composed by Irving Berlin in 1942. It is one of those standards that might be termed not-so-standard, just because it's not often played though the melody sounds familiar.

Something Cool was composed by Billy Barnes in 1957. As he mixed each tune, Nick emailed comments. About Something Cool, Nick emailed, "the emotional performance of Something Cool is so strong, I think it needs to be pushed into #2 . . . . i went for a more theatrical feel, reaching into the drama and melancholy of the tune. I envision hearing this as if in a medium sized theatre, a scene from an offbeat, off off Broadway play, without too many in the audience, but the actress is pouring her heart and soul into the scene, as she can so totally relate to it in her own sad, lost loves life.....".

Frim Fram Sauce, composed by Joe Ricardel and Redd Evans in 1946: Nick said, "it is a good tune, nice and peppy, in that second 1/2 of the set pick-'em-up slot." And, about Blackberry Winter, composed in 1976 by Alec Wilder, he said "On to Blackberry Winter, which I purposely saved for last.....cuz I think its so wonderful......." just before he mixed.

Such is the journey, so far.
