Album Notes
Emiko, Stan Poplin, and I recorded this “ridgetop session” at Highland Studios on August 18, 2008. Emiko and I met last July 4th and played for an hour or two at my home… we had a nice connection both musically and personally. She is a dynamic professional pianist, composer, arranger, and performer based in New York. I later wrote Emiko asking if she would like to play for an afternoon at Joe’s studio while on her summer trip to Santa Cruz. . The idea was to explore some musical territory that showed itself during our first visit.. Emiko said “let’s do it” and she asked Stan Poplin to play on the session. Stan is one of the best acoustic bass players on the west coast… having played with Dave Brubeck, Roger Kellaway, Robben Ford, Mose Allison, and myriad of other great musicians. I feel very fortunate to have had Stan and Emiko on this recording. for they are both exceptional in all ways.

I was looking for an all acoustic sound and with Joe Weed's expertise help we accomplished just that. Emiko played the session on Highland’s 7' Kawai grand piano, Stan played his 19th century standup bass, and I used my favorite guitar, the Andersen Archtop. We were pretty focused and were able to put down all seven songs that day. We chose to play these jazz classics simply because they are beautiful songs that have stood the test of time.

Ron Clegg's guitar displays the subtle flow of these warm and romantic jazz interpretations in the most magical sense, nicely blended with Miss Hayashi's piano accompaniment, and the support of Stan Poplin's moving bass. These songs will offer many hours of listening enjoyment. Many thanks for this innovative and unique collection.
