Emmy Award winning Pianist/Composer Brad Hatfield and his wife, Gaye Tolan Hatfield, have once again written and performed music that is perfect for background jazz uses.
If you've watched the Boston Pops on July 4th or their "Evening at Pops" Broadcasts, you probably have seen Brad Hatfield performing with artists such as Patti Labelle, kd lang, James Taylor, and Martina McBride. If you've seen the movie "Mystic River", you have heard Brad's featured solo piano playing Clint Eastwood's movie score, along with the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Brad also keeps busy performing with a variety of jazz groups in the Boston area and internationally.
Brad has enlisted some of Boston's finest jazz players (all frequently perform with the Boston Pops) to perform this relaxed, sophisticated listening music. Some cuts offer alternate takes with guitar leads, or solo piano versions. With well over an hours' worth of music, this CD will surely provide the right mood for brunches, cocktails, dinner, and any time you want to hear some light, swinging and romantic jazz.
