About the Album

This song was written when I became a parent 20-some years ago. It covers some of the epiphanies I had at that point--how fragile we all are, how we all really are made up of the same stuff, how we start out as a blank page and who's to say what gets written on that page. The song won two Honorable Mentions in Unisong's International Songwriting contest in 2006, in the Jazz and Overall Performance categories. It was recorded live for broadcast by WUFT-FM, our NPR affiliate, and features Ed Krout on piano, Scott Walton on bass, and the late great Roland Burns on tenor sax. Re-mastered by Rob Rothschild.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
