About the Album

Unreleased non-album track from the "Time Waits" sessions. From Armen Nalbandian: "I wrote this for my mentor, the great pianist John Hicks, almost 16 years ago and had the honor to perform it often for him when I would open for John. In memory of John, I recorded this when I went into the studio last month to record my solo piano album and am releasing this on the 8th anniversary of his passing." Time Waits will be released on May 23rd, 2014.

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!
