Fiona's Comments

Not a song about the future of Scottish tribes, "Clandestine" is an anxious little jumper, on the hop for something you'd possibly look the other way from. #DontAsk

About the Album

For pianist Randy Halberstadtʼs fifth album, he penned a set of compelling originals along with arranging several classics by Gershwin, Mancini, and even Chopin, orchestrated for an assortment of ensembles from trio to septet. Surrounding himself with some of the most respected members of the Northwest jazz scene, their long history together is apparent with their mutual admiration shining through in the music. A popular pianist, leader and sideman for decades, Halberstadt was also a key faculty member at the Cornish College of the Arts for over 40 years, a composer, author, and a featured soloist with the Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
