ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
I am so thankful to God for the great gift of music and the joy it brings. It is such a joy to express through music that which cannot otherwise be expressed.

I am deeply grateful to my producer and friend Danya Thompson; this project would not have happened without his encouragement, enthusiasm, energy and guidance.

It has been an unexpected and welcome gift that Darren Rahn has graciously applied his tremendous talents to this project. i will always be grateful for his trust, his example of leadership, and his genuine friendship.

Give your ears a treat
One of the advantages of surfing the internet is the occasional discovery of great new music, either by accident or pure luck, by someone I have not previously heard of. The website “smoothjazztherapy.com” recently carried an article on Scott Allman and included a link to his official website “scottallmanmusic.com” where I was able to listen to this album in its entirety before purchasing it. I was immediately captivated by this talented musician who has written some really catchy tunes for this project.

If I was to pick a favorite I struggle to choose between “Camille’s Joy,” “Mag Mile” & “Thin Ice” all of which are outstanding. The music is either up or mid tempo throughout with “Flurry” & “Reunion” reminding me of The Rippingtons. The only comparison I can think of for some of the other tracks is pianist Chris Geith’s album “Island of a Thousand Dreams.”

It is rare that every track on an album appeals but in this case I like all but the last track, “Anniversary,” which, with electric guitar taking the lead, is a bit too prog rock for my tastes. With several tracks featuring saxophonist Darren Rahn the rest of the album is an absolute delight to listen to.

It’s early days but this is likely to be my smooth jazz album of the year 2012 even though it was actually released in 2011. Highly recommended – take a listen & purchase.
