The back story: Paramount Records needed an LP of Chaplin’s music to coincide with the 1972 re-release of six of his films and, fortuitously, I was given the leading role in this project, despite never having made an album before. (This was also one of Michael Brecker’s first recordings.)

With exactly a month from signing to final mix, I quickly watched the movies, read Chaplin’s autobiography, got the sheet music and assembled musicians that related to my musical life which, during this unsettled period, meant free jazz, funk, rock, Indian music…anything but bebop! Despite (or because of) the uncertain stylistic focus, original vinyl copies and, later, pirate cd versions sold more and more through the years, sometimes at silly prices. I don’t play like this anymore but, re-listening almost 40 years later, I’m happy I made this free-spirited, odd-ball Chaplinesque album.
