"Good Day Without You" by Adam Larson

"Good Day Without You" by Adam Larson

From the album

Simple Beauty (Self Produced) by Adam Larson

Editor's Comments

This is the music Adam Larson played as an undergraduate at Manhatten school of music. "Good day without you" brings to mind the feeling of swimming hurriedly away from a hungry shark, not sure if that's the kind of simple beauty he had in mind. His sound is pacey, clean and new. Someone to watch develop.

About the track

The highly-anticipated debut album, “Simple Beauty”, from New York City based saxophonist Adam Larson is set to release mid-January 2013. The ten original compositions featured (eight to Larson’s credit), comprise the foundation of the Adam Larson Quintet repertoire; having been developed, re-vamp and knit-picked during his time as an undergraduate student at The Manhattan School of Music. Embracing a “chemistry above all” attitude, Adam enlisted his most trusted musical sidemen for the undertaking of recording this set of music. “it’s something I thought about a lot when preparing to record this album. I’ve been very fortunate to work with and develop relationships with several amazing musicians over the past few years. I picked the individuals who I knew were deeply invested in the music, the bands vision, and were right for the job”, says Larson. Those right for this project were pianist Can Olgun, bassist Raviv Markovitz, drummers Jason Burger and Guilhem Flouzat, and Larson’s most like-minded musical cohort; guitarist Nils Weinhold. Intertwining a number of musical influences, the material on this record reveals Larson’s intrigue for use of compositional devices such as mixed-meter and elongated song form. “Like many artists, I want my music to connect with as many people as I can. I’m hopeful that the music on this album will have a little something for everyone-that being said, I don’t feel we sacrificed anything artistically speaking, in the process of attempting to appeal to a larger number of people; music is music and I’m excited to share this music, and these fantastic musicians with the world!”. Larson’s album will officially be available January 2013 via Itunes, CD Baby, and physical distrubition via www.adamlarsonjazz.com
