This album contains material from a period of growth in my writing and playing. The collection contains pieces of varied approach and effect, though all within the jazz fusion style.
Breathing Space & 4am: 1995
Personnel: Matt Doebler (keyboards), Thad DeBrock (guitar), Andy Pfaff (bass), Matt Kroninger (drums)
Beauty of the Beast, Covenant, and End of Time (Parts 1-3): 1996
Personnel: Llath Freymiller (trumpet), Matt Doebler (keyboards), Joe Napoli (guitar), Benn Rose (bass), Mike Klova (drums)
---End of Time is a "multimovement work" with thematic and harmonic connections, and is also programmatic in its depiction of an apocalyptic event and the precedent moments and moods of foreboding, respite, and ultimately panic and chaos.
As Luck Would Have It: 1997
Personnel: Jon Follett (piano), Jon McCusker (bass), Evan Pazner (drums)
---This was a live recording from the Marshall Room on the Campus of Boston University.
Hawk Mountain: 2001
Personnel: Martha Michael (trumpet), Harry Gould (guitar), Andrew Korbel (bass), Racey Gilbert (drums)
All compositions are original works by me.
These recordings represent the raw and collaborative nature of jazz, and I hope they give you a great source of enjoyment.
