Album Notes
This is "Rare Form"'s second CD. The early evening gig at the Fairview Inn in Talkeetna, Alaska has been an enjoyable venue for our Jazz explorations. As always in any sort of artistic activity, Talkeetna locals have been extremely supportive of our efforts. The early evening vibe with sunlight filtering through the windows, under the gaze of the old-timers framed on the walls makes a nice setting for an enjoyable musical experience.

This CD has more originals than the first one. The engineering is better and some of the tunes go a little farther "out" Check out Rocco's blowing on Afro Blue. His tune Indigo Joe has become a crowd favorite. My tune X-hall walk was the Jazz category winner in the 2001 Alaska Public Radio Network song of the year contest. My favorite on this Cd is Rocco's moving ballad Blue Nights. Bicycle for 2 was part of an afternoon session recordedat my house. The freedom a musician has in "out" playing is a joy as new ideas and relationships occur spontaneously. Hopefully some of that joy will be communicated to the listener.-Murray Nash

Murray has been playing keyboards in Alaska since 1981 and is a regular on the music scene in Talkeetna in many genres and venues. Rocco lives in New York City most of the year and plays and records there with the Rocco John Trio. He studied with Lee Konitz and was part of the NYC "Loft" scene with Sam Rivers and others.

A great CD...It's one of my favorites
A great album full of thoughtful originals. Rocco's Blue Nights is a beautiful ballad played with full expression. Murray's X-Hall Walk is amazing. I'm putting this CD with my favorites.
