Album Notes
This CD was literally years in the making. I'd been thinking about making a CD of my original compositions since 2000, but I could never quite find the right time, the right musicians, or a good unifying theme for such a project. In 2004, I started playing bass regularly at local jazz jam sessions, and met a group of wonderfully talented players. Then in 2006, I had the incredible good fortune to meet Dawn Blair, a very talented cellist from my home state of Kansas. Now I knew who I wanted on the CD, and what material I wanted to include.

The title track Sometimes Things Work Out is a song I wrote several years ago, when I was contemplating how life sometimes allows things work out for the best.

Dawn came to Portland in 2007 for the first recording sessions for this album, and later we did a few overdubs at my friend Tom Ptacek's studio in Kansas City. I think you'll agree that her cello work elevates the whole project.

The other musicians on the album are highly talented musicians whom I have played with many times at jam sessions. These cats can take a very sketchy leadsheet and turn it into a polished performance on the spot. Sometimes, they took my tunes in a very different direction than I had imagined, but it was always to an even better place.

Featured on this CD are:
Milledge Bennett - Percussion
Dawn Blair - Cello
Christian Botto - Guitar
Ted Clifford - Keyboards
Jack McCreary - Alto sax and Flute
Michael Kora - Drums
Steve Pinkston - Bass and Guitar

Made My Day...
Just played Steve Pinkston's latest album this past Saturday morning (for the 1st time)in an attempt to clear out Friday night's cobwebs and I must say, I was pleasantly surprised. Some original yet familiar sounds were played with comforting energy, and fresh, innovative pieces passionately played me through a range of emotions...from love lost to love found.
I rarely 'get' a new album the first run through,
But this one brought smiles to my ears...Dig it!
