Album Notes
my name is rob chaseman and i play the saxophone. the 3 cds on this site all correlate to the book i will be releasing. each song title is a title of a chapter in my book. they are strongly linked to and are expressions of my own life story and experience with bipolar disorder. my sophomore cd 'helicopter' is based on the many cycles that exist in humanity and in nature. it is one 45 minute piece that was influenced by my own experience with introspection and the cycles of thought, mood, perception and behavior that accompany it.

the cd is a journey through the mind of one person's experience through a cycle. the path starts with a mood of ambiguity and simplicity and slowly moves on to a period of more action and purpose. from this place it builds into a catharsis of confusion and dissonance. it continues falling on solid ground displaying a new sense of clarity and sensibility. it can also be interpreted as my experience from one hospitalization to another.

i recorded 'helicopter' in chapel hill nc with long time friends stephen levitin (the apple juice kid) on drums, matt brandau on bass, and mark wells on rhodes and myself on sax. this quartet used to play together regularly so the group has a comfortable relaxed feel. that feel lent itself to create a piece that became cohesive, full of emotion and extremely creative. it was just four players improvising within the concept of one extended song. the end result was an interesting, moody, flowing musical experience.
