CHARLES RAHMAT WOODS ON "MODERN MUSIC THERAPY": " This recording is dedicated to the great drummer ROY HAYNES, and we perform several of Roy's most loved compositions: "RAOUL"," BULLFIGHT", and "I'M SO HIGH". Roy has said that this great style of music is therapeutic, and I agree with him. Jazz is one style of music that can be peacefully appreciated by the complete spectrum of global society. On this CD we also recognize the tender spirituality of DUKE ELLINGTON'S "COME SUNDAY", the assertive determination of MILES DAVIS'S "NARDIS" and the introspection of WAYNE SHORTER'S "PINOCHIO"...Enjoy!
