Album Notes
A sampling of my jazz compositions spanning nearly 4 decades and featuring different styles. All in all, the tunes are relatively straight-ahead tunes and feature a collection of my favorite Boston area players.

This jazz EP is an adventure into a different world from my usual gig as a church musician and composer of sacred and liturgical music. I find jazz to open up melodic and harmonic possibilities not found in other musical forms.

The immediate reaction from listeners has been positive. From the first bar, it's clear what the music is and the quintet is fully fluent in this style of music, not only in rendering the "head" but particularly in the solo sections. This is my fourth overall album release and the one that required the least amount of editing in the mixing process, which is a tribute to a group of players that really listen to each other and focus on the ensemble sound.

The first 3 cuts feature the quintet with Diane Werniick on tenor, Alex Meisner on alto, Diana Fischer on piano, Blake Newman on bass and Phil Neighbors on drums. These tracks were recorded "live in the studio." I added a fourth track of solo piano, where I explore some tonal tension on the theme of a cold October rain.

The session was recorded on October 28, 2017 at Ugly Duck Studio in Brighton, Mass., by Eric Alper.
