This is Rick's 5th release on his own Jazzand label. The trio features Rick's guitar with along with bassist Marco Panascia and drummer Tom Pollard. The intro to Fractals is an intervallic arpeggio pattern which eases into the head based on the chord changes to Jerome Kern's All the Things You Are in 5/4. A full transcription of the tune and solo is available from Rick's website.

I love jazz because it swings.
I was first exposed to jazz in Houston.
I met Joe LoCascio and Bob Henschen.
The best show I ever attended was Pat Martino.
The first jazz record I bought was Time Out by the Dave Brubeck Quartet.
My advice to new listeners is to relax on 2 and 4 beats.
