Album Notes
This CD recorded in the mid nineties was a great learning experience. I recorded this music at the top of a stair case in an old farm house with this old guitar that I bought in the west village of N.Y.C. over twenty years ago for $200.00. I used a dat machine and two neuman microphones to capture what the overtones were offering. Stepping Stones is a overture improv piece that has many starts and stops , as counterpoint seems to act as the director of the play. Etude Du Couer, which in French means, the study of the heart, is a piece based on practicing the mood of a somber heart more than the actual notes themselves. Moonbugs is dedicated to the insects we have yet to meet. ( if found on another planet I'll change the title) . Lonely Woman is one of my favorite Ornette Coleman classics, thank you so much Ornette. Always For You and Meaning Us are two original ballads, the're written in a jazz format for improvising in traditional chordal progressions Miro, written for artist Joan Miro, who let me use one of his paintings on my first L.P. " For This Gift " on Gunmar ,Gunther Schuller's label, I wanted to thank him with this piece. Home at Last, is written for drummer Skip Hadden and his wife Gwen while they were endlessly searching and eventually finding their home. Premonitions is a improvised piece, based on pure guitar sound and most importantly the space between all notes. Rejoice is a written groove piece, with different time signatures in different sections.dedicated to drummer, hometown friend, Jamey Haddad.
