Fiona's Comments

I can't get past AAJ reviewer Mark Turner's comment on this song, that Dingman "can also ignite, as in Clear The Rain, with a solo like wildfire, developing slowly and then spreading quickly." It aptly sums up this tune. What starts deceptively as a spooky ballad ignites with growing intensity before concluding with a return to a pacified state, but not as serene as the notes which the song first began. Excellent song from an excellent album. Jazz from the Brooklyn scene.

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
