Notes from the composer:

In February 2018 artist Marsha Hammel invited me to bring my trio to a special event at The Gallery at Flatrock (NC) in which she would paint a portrait of the trio while we performed. Marsha also offered the use of the painting for an album cover. Months later, when I saw the magnificent finished portrait I confirmed it was a great opportunity to create an album to go with the painting.

With the painting in mind I selected a program of original tunes which would make a journey for the listener and an adventure for myself. In January 2019 the trio had two rehearsals and a concert in preparation for two days of recording in February. Zack and Rick are consummate musicians and Phil Ludwig of Seclusion Hill Music helped us sound great!

Here are some notes about the music:

“I Don't Know Yet” is a straight eighth interactive adventure among the three of us. The song title emerged when I imagined someone asking the name of the song.

“Waltzing out-of-Town” is a medium jazz waltz with a gospel flavor. It has a happy diatonic melody which gets harmonized as far as I could stretch it staying in tonal harmony.

“Toasted” is a tongue-in-cheek spin-off of the Annie Ross/Wardell Gray classic “Twisted” with a slight inflection of Monk.

“Daydream” has the type of floaty theme I love with a rhythm section treatment borrowed from Ahmad Jamal’s great trio with drummer Vernel Fournier.

“Poignant” - For me, sometimes it’s worth recording a whole album just to include a beautiful ballad.

“Stop and Blow” - When “Stop and Shop” appeared in Buffalo, where I lived in the mid-seventies it was a perfect opportunity for me to title a free jazz tune. “Stop and Blow” has a cross-tonal theme a free jazz swing improv, a “whisper chorus” and an out-of-time improv, all of which were fun to play with Rick and Zack.

“Freedom” - A little bit funky; a little bit bluesy

“A Better Way” - Melodic, straight eighth, ambient, and sweet.

“Walkin' to Your House” - A fun tune to listen to and a fun tune to play!

“Climb Up” is part of a musical play called “The Selfish Giant” written with author and lyricist Bob McParland. “Climb Up” is about a tree which invites a child to climb it. It makes a lovely jazz waltz.

“For Chick” - Chick Corea is one of my great influences and inspirations as a pianist and composer.

“Afternoon Memory” is a study in major and minor and a vehicle for nostalgic memories.

I hope this music brings you joy and peace.

Richard Shulman
