Album Notes
From 2005 to 2013 I took an immersive deep dive, both aurally and compositionally, into hard bop and jazz writing, During that time I completed two original albums (21 songs), this standards album (to learn from the masters!) and a 3 song original EP following it (The Odd Coffee album also on CD Baby, ITunes, etc contains both the EP and second originals album). While I was writing and recording I was also listening to dozens of blue-note, impulse, riverside, prestige, etc. records, I developed a deep love and appreciation for many artists but especially the two largest schools of jazz, namely the Art Blakey School and the Miles Davis School. These schools cultivated an incredible list of A-list jazz composers and performers that shaped the sound of the late 50s to mid 60s jazz era. Some of my heros from this era who influenced me are:(list is way incomplete!) Art Blakey, Miles Davis, Lee Morgan, Bobby Hutcherson, Cannonball and Nat Adderley, Hank Mobley, Horace Silver, Curtis Fuller, Grant Green, Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, and Ron Carter. I have also been influenced by genius innovators namely Charles Mingus, Theloneous Monk, Yusef Lateef, John Coltrane, Eric Dolphy, and Sun Ra.
