Album Notes
As a follow up to my A Day in the Park jazz album I decided to write and record my next jazz album without synthesizers. I further changed direction by changing the "seed" instrument or the first musical part in writing the song from piano to a percussion instrument. As an avid collector of world percussion instruments it was easy to select a different one for each song from the ones I already owned. The percussion instruments used are arranged on the album cover art. I used a Djembe (goblet shaped drum from Mali), an Udu (gourd shaped clay drum from Nigeria), Okpokoro Dibias (two ended shakers with hung triple beaters inside from Nigeria. My Nigerian friend Steve sold me these and said the literal translation of these are "Priest's Tools"), Puili (long pieces of bamboo that have many lengthwise slits cut into them from Hawaii), a Triangle (from Grimleyland), a Guiro (the ribbed wooden fish you likely played in elementary school from Latin America), Claves (two wooden dowels from Cuba), Castenets (two shell shaped pieces of wood tied at one end from from origins unknown but used widely in Europe, North Africa and the Middle East), Checkalas (crook of a tree branch with 3 disks at one end from Nigeria), and a Shekere (gourd drum wrapped in beads from Nigeria). As a bonus three extra songs are included at the end. These songs were to be a new album to follow this one, and my jazz covers album "Customs" (also on cdbaby). I switched gears in 2013 though when I became inspired to record the Green Velvis album. I hope you enjoy these songs. They were a serious labor of love. Anyone who plays steel drum can tell you it is not an easy instrument to wrap your mind around. Performing jazz on one requires an incredible amount of perseverance.....
