Album Notes
\"Simple Major Simple Minor\"

The musical structures of Simple Major/
Simple Minor are not complex forms. Richard
uses simple forms to highlight subtle
features of arrangement/orchestrations
and also to illuminate the improvisational
explorations of the players.
Well over four hours of music was recorded
between May 2003 and February 2004. First
or second takes were always preferred and
eventually overdubbed versions of the pieces
were put aside in favor of the live ones.

Comments by Ron Thomas

At the outset I had no intention
to make this project a Jaco \"tribute\"
but his musical presence is so strong
throughout that I realized his name
had to shine through. Chico and I were
born at the right time (1955) for Jaco
to be one of our idols. He was a powerful
guidepost for us both, and many thousands
of others as well.
Don\'t let the two keyboards fool you,
the spirit of John Francis Pastorius III
is present throughout this recording. Check
out Chico Huff, one of my favorite electric
bassists on the planet. The playing of Ron
Thomas is like no one else. He is one of
the great originals playing electric jazz
starting with his recordings in the early
70\'s on Pat Martino\'s \"Live\" and Eric
Kloss\'s\" One, Two, Free\". Glenn Ferracone\'s
drumming is always in the groove after years
of playing with the DeFrancesco family (Papa
John, Johnny and Joey)and the Mike Falcone
