Album Notes
In his 35 plus years as a freelance Jazz pianist, Doug Roche has always been conscious of playing jazz that is accessible to a wide range of listeners without giving up the spirit of exploration in improvisation.
This sensitivity to his audience and fellow musicians has helped him develop a style that is both sophisticated and easy to enjoy.

Simple Measures is about creating a Jazz alternative to the large assortment of relaxation music available today. This CD is the first in a series of Simple Measures recordings. It is a mood piece ...... meant to soothe. It contains relaxing versions of some beautiful standards and one original tune performed in the Jazz Trio format.

This music is perfect for any environment that requires stress-less listening, from massage therapy, to doctors' offices, to coffee shops, to any place of business, or to just watching a sunset and sipping a glass of wine.

This is not another new-age recording, but experienced Jazz musicians exploring the gentler side of Waltzes, Ballads and Bossa Novas, to create a listening experience that can be enjoyed on different levels.

With the expert assistance of Ron Bland on bass, and Mike Marlier on drums, this CD was recorded at Doug's home studio, live with no editing. His studio faces a private lake with the Rocky Mountains in the background.

"I hope the serenity that inspired us during this session comes through in your listening experience." Doug

Great! Tom loved it! Any more of your recordings available?
The music was soothing and enjoyable. We liked the variety of songs and the arrangements. It was a great birthday gift. Hope there are more recordings available in this series, as mentioned on the CD cover.

I came across this music in the office of a massage therapist. It was beautiful and soothing, but NOT background music. The more I heard, the more I felt compelled to seek this music out and make the purchase. I listen to many jazz artists including Grappelli, Miles, Coltrane, McLaughlin, Paul Smith, Guaraldi, Ron McCroby (there's a range...), and I found this music to be every bit as compelling as the aforementioned artists. Check it out! I recommend it.

Hotel Teatro

Simple Measures - Waltz for CJ
As concierge at a luxury hotel, it is a privilege to provide music of this quality for our VIP guests staying inthe Presidential Suite. Doug's understanding of these jazz standards is telling in his nuanced arrangements and the trio as a whole is stellar as well.
