Album Notes
Notes from the Composer:
I usually compose, from a life of traveled inspired experiences. “Bliss” is dedicated to all the healers and that calm state we seldom reach. “Buddy” is dedicated to our lovable chiweenie, with lots of personality. “Lonely Eyes” is for those solitary moments in life. “The Sun Suite” is dedicated to the Sun, which affects all our lives here on Earth and beyond. “Dance of the Rising Sun”, is for the celebration of each new day and the peoples of the Caribbean. ” Nona Hora”, is inspired by a trip to Madrid, many years ago and enjoying the noon time bell ringing, from the local churches. “Serene Sunset” is inspired by Sunset Cliffs in San Diego California, where the locals enjoy watching the sunset.

Transcendent and yet musically complex
Of Whispers and Dreams is jazz at its finest. Steve McQuarry has played with and learned from some of the jazz greats--and it shows. He is a consummate composer, and his creations are beautifully interpreted by each member of this excellent quartet, which includes sax, keyboards, bass and drums. You can relax in a meditative state while listening, or appreciate the colorful harmonies and masterful solos. This is a "must have" for any jazz afficionado.
