About the Album

Opening the album, “They Say There Are Beautiful Trees” starts soft with a simple motif, drawing the listener in as the music gradually builds to a lush melody with all members of the band. As the music simmers down following this first section, a dialogue begins between Liany Mateo’s bass solo and Luther Allison’s piano comping, launching a second more dramatic gradual build in excitement and intensity until the song’s conclusion with a soft statement from the opening melody.

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!
