Album Notes

DANÇA DO PAPAGAIO: “Dance of the Parrot” My Green Wing Macaw, Bahia, would flap, squack and dance as I was writing this then unnamed chart. So, the title seemed like a natural! Well, the title worked out well for a number of reasons - dancing parrot, a piece set to baião rhythms, which come from the Bahia (parrots name) region of Brazil, which is also the native territory of the Green Wing Macaw! Solos are by Dick Adams on the tenor sax, Chris Wheeland on bass and Tim Breon on guitar.

IF IT WERE ME... : 12/8 bluesy feel featuring Steve Adams on the piano solo and the saxes on a fun double-time sax soli.

SEXTESSENCE: Not what you’re thinking. This title means the essence of six - as the chart is in 6/4 time. It highlights Dick Adams on the tenor sax, Steve Clickard on the flugelhorn, Steve adams on piano and Todd Egger on drums. Listen for the fun acappella soprano sax lead soli.

BAZINGA FOR THE BOYS: The ensemble has decided that Bazinga should be the new term for scherzo! This is a fun up-tempo bebop piece that features solos by Steve Clickard on trumpet and Steve Adams on piano.

THERE’LL BE SOME CHANGES MADE: I was asked by my publisher to write some little big band arrangements of standard tunes that had just come into the public domain. A good friend and mentor of mine, Don Schamber, always said not to arrange a tune unless you had something new to add to it. So...this is a very different version of the 1920’s tune. It’s melody is reinterpreted and starts out as a half-time funk that transitions into a samba. You will hear Tim Breon on guitar, Steve Adams on piano and Dick Adams on tenor sax.

STROLLIN’ WITH MISS J: Written for my wife, Janel, the piece recalls the walks we used to take to the Asilomar on the Monterey Peninsula when she was still Miss J. Solists are Steve Clickard on trumpet and Larry Fisher on alto sax.

THE LONE CYPRESS: Speaking of the Monterey Peninsula, here is a lovely ballad written for one of the landmarks of the area. The Lone Cypress sits on a rocky promontory in Pebble Beach overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The chart features Michael Pryor on the baritone saxophone.

ROSE ROOM: Another tune recently moved into the public domain, you might recognize Rose Room as the bumper music from the Ken Burns “JAZZ” documentary. I have elongated the form and set it as a samba. The chart features Dick Adams on tenor sax.

WALT’S GROOVE: Many have asked upon either hearing or playing this tune, “Who’s Walt?” - only to elicite a groan when they are finaly told! The chart is in a semi-modal 3/4 feel with a fun recurring bass line. Features Steve Adams on piano and Chris Wheeland on bass.

THE SHEIK OF ARABY: This is the standard swing tune from the 1920’s reborn as a cha cha. Features Dick Adams on the tenor and Tim Breon on the guitar.

IN THE AFTER-RAIN: A fun shuffle in 4/4 with some transitions to straight swing. The solists are Dick Adams on tenor and Tim Breon on guitar.

THE PERIPATETIC PIXIE: I kept imagining a pixie running around on the snare drum trying to avoid the brushes as I was naming this up-tempo chart. Features Todd Hunter on trombone, and Dick Adams on tenor.
