ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
I was drawn to Anne Sexton's work a few years back, leading to a theater performance combining text from her letters and poetry, which I set to music. That continued exploration led to the creation of this set of songs, which was arranged for/and recorded by a wonderful group of NY and MA jazz musicians:
Jamie Reynolds, piano/musical director; Matt Wigton, bass; Fred Kennedy; drums; Marty Ehrlich, sax and clarinet; Jim Matus, guitar and lute; Lalita Salins, flute and background vocals; Tony Vacca and Nur Habib Tiven, percussion.

The richness of Sexton's poetry challenged and inspired me to look for ways to merge various aspects of my own eclectic musical journey into these songs - jazz, chamber music, folk music, a touch of the mystical... There is an intense, vivid and joyous immediacy to Sexton's poetic language. It is her fervent attention to the fleeting intimacy of life that I wished to capture and celebrate here.
