Album Notes
"While Dick Sisto has been compared to both Gary Burton and Milt Jackson, hiw own lyrical style manages to synthesize both without ever succumbing to imitation."
- Wade Kergan, All Music Guide

"... a more mature approach to style and technique and a high level of communication"
- Rick Mattingly, Modern Drummer

Vibraphonist, music director at Louisville's historic Seelbach Hotel, clinician and instructor and public radio host - Dick Sisto is a multi-faceted artist whose many interests, travels and spiritual quests have always fueled his artistic journeys. Early collaborations with David Sanborn and a pre-Earth Wind & Fire Maurice White gave way to more spiritual pursuits in northern California, and eventually to Bardstown, Kentucky near the Gethsemane Trappist monastery, where he met Father Louis, known to most as Thomas Merton.

Much of the music on "Soul Searching" was used for the soundtrack to a new documentary on Merton, who became Sisto's personal friend and spiritual mentor. In addition to the seven original Sisto compositions, these is a tune from guitarist Bobby Broom and one group composition, as well as inspired versions of tunes by Thelonious Monk, Kenny Dorham, and Kenny Kirkland.
