Fiona's Comments

New release from guitarist Maxey, as he continues along on his goal of recording six albums in the span of one year. On this track, he, yet again, illustrates his knack for bringing an expansive sound to the table without sacrificing the intimacy of music that makes it easy to connect with. Sway over swing, good track to drift off to on a lazy afternoon.

About the Album

The idea behind the title is that, if you are climbing a mountain, the view and terrain might not look easy. There are storms, it's steep, uphill and a lot of work. But, you are on the mountain. The lesson for me is: when climbing a mountain, don't be surprised every time it seems like a mountain. If the terrain is looking difficult, you're headed the right way. Personnel: Josh Maxey, guitar and composition; Brian Charette, piano; Robert Woodcock, bass; and Evan Pazner, drums.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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!
