Album Notes
According to one source, jazz is a music genre that originated in the African-American communities of New Orleans, United States, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and developed from roots in blues and ragtime. Jazz is seen by many as 'America's classical music'.

Over the years, jazz expanded in a variety of directions. With this collection, I have attempted to incorporate as many of them as my own personal playing style would accommodate. Thus, I offer a few tunes that are reminiscent of what is known as The Great American Songbook; a tap number; a ragtime piece; a blues (or “bloozz”) number; a torch song, and even a nod to the Swingle Singers and Dave Brubeck.

What is presented as jazz in the media is all too often music from the be-bop era, which was a fairly short-lived segment out of the long history of this wonderfully versatile genre.

I forget who suggested that I do a jazz album in the first place, but I would like to say “Thanks for the idea.” Enjoy the music.
