About the Album

The concluding tune from Something Quiet (FMR, 2011) with Bob Gluck (piano), Joe Giardullo (soprano saxophone), and Christopher Dean Sullivan (bass). 'Lifeline', first recorded on the Bob Gluck Trio's Sideways (FMR, 2008), is given a new interpretation on this new CD. It is an episodically written composition in which the mood shifts from section to section. Opening with Gluck's lyrical Monkishly rhythmic motif reminiscent of the pianists "Thelonious", the piece moves into a meditative segment featuring Giardullo at his most expressive before briefly returning to the melodic opening for a satisfying final resolution.

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.
