About the Album

“I’m Running Late,” composed by pianist Ray Gallon (instrumentally titled “That’s the Question”), who also plays on the record. Verbrugge first heard Gallon perform it at Small’s in Greenwich Village and the lyrics popped in her head as a fit for the uptempo melody. “As a mom of three myself, a wife, a daughter, a friend, a volunteer, a property manager, a lyricist and jazz vocalist, I know I can end up quite scatterbrained and may occasionally end up running late as I try to fit it all in,” explains Verbrugge. “Essentially it’s a modern jazz anthem addressing our busy lives.” Source: JAZZIZ Track Debut Feature, JANUARY 2019

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!
