Fiona's Comments

After following the Miles way in part 1 part 2 of this tune hits with a sound that recalls Scottish reels and Turkish Dervish and some pretty fast bop. A long strong tune, jazz VFM! (Don't ask what Tadodaho means in English)

About the Album

"Tadodaho" is the opening track from the latest release by The Daniel Rosenboom Septet, "Unsayable Absence: Live at the Blue Whale." After a swirling, reverent and spirited introduction, the tune launches into a rocking groove, an onslaught of changing meters, and builds to a roaring and thrilling climax. Inspired by the poetry on the ceiling of Los Angeles's premiere jazz club, The Blue Whale, and "Tadodaho" is the Onondaga word for "fire-keeper" or "chief" and the song is dedicated to The Blue Whale's owner and "fire-keeper" for the LA jazz scene, Joon Lee.
