ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This CD has a special place in my heart because it's my music. Songs that I've written over the years with the vast influence of music I've heard from all over the world. I want to thank my boss Kenny Rogers and his record company "Dreamcatchers" for believing in me and allowing me this opportunity to share it with you...Please take a moment to check out my Video from the 1st song "Rhythms Of The Night" http://www.randydorman.com/vid.htm

If you enjoy smooth jazz, Randy Dorman has created a winner with his pleasant and entertaining CD release titled NO BOUNDARIES. A smooth stylist, Randy Dorman has a mellow guitar sound that is sure to win him many jazz fans.
Among the 10 selections are the melodic "Night Winds," the wonderfully intricate sounds of "A Song For My Daughter," "Cozy," and "Reflections." Both production values and music are excellent. The listening audience will have a great time listening to these selections. "Rhythms of the Night" is imaginative and reveals the many talents of guitarist Randy Dorman, as does "Green Ice."
For a look and listen to the sounds of jazz guitarist Randy Dorman, this is a fine introduction. NO BOUNDARIES is a nice entry into the smooth jazz genre, full of imaginative and sensitivity.
Highly enjoyable. Reviewed by: Lee Prosser

Country journeyman Kenny Rogers' long-time guitar player Randy Dorman shows he has a smooth jazz jones.
Randy Dorman is a session player's session player. Over the past twenty years he has performed with the biggest names in Country Music, including Ray Charles (yes, Brother Ray), Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson and Faith Hill, just to drop a few names.
First tapped by Kenny Rogers in 1977, Randy has never looked back. I suspect that Mr. Dorman could play any type music he would like, but when he is out on his own, he favors Jazz in all of its flavors.
Before signing on with Kenny Rogers' Dreamcatcher Label, Dorman made four recordings for independent labels, all of jazz standards.
For his new recording, No Boundaries, Mr. Dorman has opted to perform nine original compositions. A unifying theme to the entire recording is Mr. Dorman's obvious respect for the Latin elements in music. He employs such nuances in several of the pieces, including the upbeat "Rhythm of the Night," the wistful ballad "A Song for My Daughter," and the cozy "Cozy." "Kickin' Butt" is about the closest thing to mainstream jazz that No Boundaries has to offer. It smacks of Dorman's country soul and sounds like the logical evolutionary endpoint of New Grass and Texas Swing had they met and had a baby called Country Be Bop.  
On the whole, this disc is pleasant, if not inspiring, smooth jazz with a Barbeque twang and a whiff of mesquite smoke. This disc will appeal to all fans of Kenny Rogers' crossover music as well as adventuresome smooth jazz fans looking for something a little different.

From "Jazz Now" by Lawrence Brazier
Well, when the engineer gets listed among the musicians you can bet that a load of extra work was put into an album. There is a good amount of programming, but it all works. The rhythms are relaxed, nobody cooks (although Kickin' Butt, track 7, has a few nice licks), which means that the Jazz content is a bit lacking. You could be happy with this music when stuck on a freeway; it is sufficient to lighten your spirit, but not funky enough to get you riled. Randy Dorman, however, sure knows his way around guitars. This is professionalism at a very high level. The leader is blessed with excellent writing abilities, although I'll bet they spent weeks getting it all down. It seems unfair for a Jazz critic to review this album because the Jazz content is sort of "pleasant" on the other hand one has to admire Dorman for his talent. I sure hope he makes a good living as a musician. He should be picking up studio gigs and one-nighters all over. His talent gives him the right. Nice album, suitable for dropping out of this appalling world for an hour or so.

Let's see, if you play guitar for country superstar Kenny Rogers for 25 years and decide to release a solo CD, it must be a country CD. If it is released on Kenny Rogers' Dreamcatcher Records label and is from Nashville it must be a country CD. If the silhouette of the person on the cover has a southern hat and the inside pictures look like a country guitarist it must be a country CD. Don't be fooled like many in the industry were this summer: Randy Dorman's CD  "No Boundaries" is 100% smooth sounding jazz.
 
Influenced by such jazz guitarists as Lee Ritenour and Larry Carlton, Dorman enjoys a variety of jazz artists including local jazzman and keyboardist Bob James. While he has great admiration for many of the contemporary jazz musicians Dorman looks towards his music to be away for him to make his own "musical mark" rather than to be a duplication of others.
 
Dorman considers his guitar style to be along the lines of traditional rather than more modern speed and flashy play.
 
"I learned a long time ago that I am not a speed or flash player," said Dorman. "My forte is in chord structure, chord melodies and working melodically rather than a lot of notes and flash."
 
Dorman could have sold out, with his track record as a country music guitarist who has played with many of the best. Besides Rogers, Dorman has played for Garth Brooks, Faith Hill, Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson and several others. Going for the dollars would have been easy, capitalizing off his 25 years of success in Nashville as a country music guitarist. Yet Dorman chose to do a CD of music that is closest to his heart, not a country-pop CD or even an R& B jazz CD. "No Boundaries" is just that, music that goes beyond industry standards and is about the heart & soul of the artist not the bottom line of the industry.
