ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Collage : In 1964 – 1965 when the Jazz clubs shut down and to stay alive (in spirit and flesh) I played for dancers, lived in a cinderblock room at some college and was most miserable about not playing “Round Midnight” and Off Minor,” but loved watching the dancers. That was like being a kid locked up overnight in an ice cream parlor with every delicious flavor from chocolate to vanilla and strawberry to chose from. One dancer brought a collage of colored jell papers into my room, put it over the light and stayed a while. This is her waltz.

Strontium 90 – Near the school was an Electric Boat where nuclear subs are made; and one of them, the Will Rogers, looked like a block long turd draped with American Flags… two rounds – eight million dead. A time for protest. Toomuch death; no jazz; only strontium 90, a lethal hate cloud.

Blues on a Wet Thursday – “Aren’t you going to fetch me a chair?” A different voice from the cinderblock cell. “You can’t stop a war by laying down in the street.” The past comes back and slaps me in the mind. I remember some Blues on a Wet Thursday. The rain outside is sweet, the voice is hard.

Charleston: Just another Jazz song to make you grove and move. This track captures the feelings of an on the road gigging musician, living the “Jazz Life” of booze, weed, women, and playing live on a regular basis.
