ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Shortly before my father's passing, he said to me, "Craig, it's all about faith, family and friends. Measure the importance of everything you do, by its effect on those three things." That wise counsel was the inspiration in choosing, arranging and performing the songs on this recording. The outstanding a capella vocal quintet, "Six Miles Ahead" leads the charge here. I had a blast writing for them--always trying to keep things simple, for the sake of the message, but interesting from an artistic view as well. This album, of course, differs a bit from my other albums available from CD Baby. I think, though, if you like classic mainstream jazz, you will enjoy the harmonic treatments of the songs herein. I worry a little that some will consider the lyrics to my original compositions a bit "preachy", but bear in mind they are expressions of the ideal. In reality, of course, we all have our failings--so much so that the achievement and sustaining of the ideal is a lifelong (and beyond) process. Along the way, though, may the messages on this Cd serve as reminders of what is most important, and may we all become a little less distracted by the lesser things and more focused on faith, family and friends. Happy listening!
Craig Larson
