About the Album

On September 28, 2004 I heard the Fire Into Music quartet with Steve Swell, Jemeel Moondoc, William Parker, and Hamid Drake. The music wouldnt leave me. The next day I went to Xavier University to teach a lesson. I often get there early to practice. This tune came out while I was trying to warm up. It was inspired by the music I heard the previous night, and I hear a little Ornette Coleman in it as well. Of course, its not unusual to find a little Ornette where you werent looking for it. Recorded in New Orleans, LA on November 29, 2004

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!
