ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The compositions on Prospectus draw from Rosemary Minkler's influences such as pianists Keith Jarrett, Chick Corea, and Craig Taborn. Jarrett's Life Between the Exit Signs and Corea's Now He Sings, Now He Sobs are distinguished in the catalogue of modern jazz piano trio music and have been pivotal in the way jazz piano is perceived. These works incorporate elements of avant-garde jazz with those of the traditional jazz idiom. Likewise, Prospectus juxtaposes simple and complex melody and harmony to create a variety of textures that exhibit the flexibility that the jazz piano trio offers.
As the engineer of this project, Rosemary was heavily inspired by the collection of albums from the German record label ECM (Edition of Contemporary Music). This label's aesthetic is defined by the artists and their compositions as well as the sonic quality of each album. Jarrett has recorded extensively for ECM and Taborn's latest three albums have all been released on the label. The recordings typically feature a very natural sound paired with a surreal reverb.
The title "Prospectus" means "view, sight, or horizons" in Latin and is used in English to refer to a document that advertises a business in order to inform clients or investors. Prospectus is not only Rosemary Minkler's debut as a composer, bandleader, and audio engineer, but also her own prospectus.
