"Before I Close My Eyes" by Jon Raney

From the album

Waltz for Talia (Self Produced) by Jon Raney

Editor's Comments

Song has that intoxicating sense of ominous tension even though it could easily be summed up as a pretty tune. It's the same kind of musical duality that I find compelling in many of John Zorn's spiritual-themed compositions. A rainy-day jazz sort of album that could easily fit into the Origin/OA2 label's catalog. Jazz from NYC.

About the track

The initial motives for "Before I Close My Eyes" were composed on the subway, after which I used the record-listen-continue-repeat method I employed fairly often at the time. The song's album Waltz for Talia is dedicated to my lovely daughter.
