Album Notes
“Dorian Blue” is a name that I've given to a number of 6-piece bands that I've led. The format of the band was a traditional jazz quartet (Sax, Keys, Bass & Drums) with the addition of Guitar to play more funk and rock and Percussion to play more Latin. It was very much derived from the work of Spyro Gyra, a band which influenced me heavily and which got me out of classical and into jazz. Two of the pieces on this album are lifted directly from Spyro Gyra and I owe them a great debt. The music that I played was instrumental and tried to combine jazz and dance music while remaining accessible. In putting together this album, I expanded the name to include the music of some earlier bands in which I’d played that had a similar format and material, but factually had names like “First Circle,” “Jazzmania” and “Cafe Bozart.” The title of the album, "A Portrait Of Dorian Blue" is meant to reflect a survey of more than 20 years of live stage performances. I wanted to record some of the better arrangements of this music that had evolved over the years through the contributions of numerous musicians starting in the 80's in Washington, DC, the 90's in San Francisco and most recently in Sydney. I hope you enjoy it; it was a great ride. - Peter MacDonough
