Album Notes
The Art of reflection is based on an idea that I have worked out over many years of dual experience in Baroque and Jazz performance. Using these astonishing works of Bach and Telemann as a point of departure, I have created original music by reflecting them through the 21st century sensibilities of my jazz musician self. While the themes, rhythms, and techniques of the older works are recognizable in their jazz reflections, the African based rhythmic structures and dense, complex harmonies of jazz take them to another landscape of sound. While the baroque texture of violin , harpsichord, and cello, is neatly echoed in the jazz trio of violin, guitar, and bass, the jazz reflections allow the players to explore free improvisation as soloists and in dialogue with each other. Assisting me on this album are some incomparable musicians. John Stowell, guitarist,is well known as a phenomenal improviser and brilliant collaborator. Jeff Grubbs, bassist, is remarkable for his rock solid time feel and witty, understated improvisations. Mary Hastings, Soprano, provided the soaring vocal lines in the Bach reelections with great feeling and a sense of humor that took her operatic skills to a new place.
