ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Special thanks to Blair Hardman for his ears and great sense of proportion in sound and skillful use of his tools at Zone Recording, Cotati, California. Thanks to Heaven 'n Earth : Claire Victor for her vocal arranging skills along with Veronique Della Bruna, and Steve Berry who blended so well together on Fire Within and The Quest and contributed lyric suggestions and creative input. I also want to take note of Claire's great and intuitive improv towards the end of Fire Within. Thanks to Kendrick Freeman, Percussionist Extraordinaire, especially for his conversation between drums and congas on Crusin' With Monk as well as his poignant use of textures and subtle rhythmic variations on Colors of Fall and Frederic Visits The Club. Thanks to Bob Simmons for his wonderfully silky, smoky vocal skills on My Foolish Heart and to Craig Stull for his diabolically friendly voice of a greedy One Percenter on The Wall Street Rag. Thanks to Brooke Harris Wolff for her lyric insights on The Wall Street Rag ( look for more songs by Brooke and Grant in the future) as well as Billy (William D.) Wolff for his production help recording the vocal on The Wall Street Rag at Rich Eames' Studio in Los Angeles. Thanks to Jennie Houts for her creative album cover and photography and also to her husband, Gazzali Jaleel, for his web consultation. I especially want to thank my wife, Jill, for her encouragement of my music throughout my whole life and the loving family members I am so lucky to have been blest with.

Cool and hot!
From the romantic "My Foolish Heart," to the biting wit of "The Wall Street Rag," this album is amazing! Do you want gorgeous Latin infused sounds also? They're here. How about accessible melodic jazz? It's here too! Highly recommended.

very good

Inspiring!
These songs are amazing in so many ways! The variety of emotions they provoke is awesome: they inspire, soothe, and stimulate. Wall Street Rag should be this year's theme song. The Quest got me up and dancing this morning! I eagerly await more from this artist. Thank you so much.

Spectacular album
Rarely have I come across a jazz composer/pianist of such stature as Grant Johnson. He has delivered a collection of extroardinary original songs, such as jazz standouts Little Ones, Colors of Fall and Dreamflyte, among others that venture into the hypnotic and interesting realms of modern dance music. Grant's arrangements are brilliant, and his piano/keyboard playing ranks with the top players in jazz. Add to his originals, the beautiful renditions of My Foolish Heart and All the Things You Are, as well as the whacky and oh-too-true Wall Street Rag -- and I couldn't recommend this album more highly!
