Including 13 original and 1 Herbie Hancock cover song, this CD features the best of about three years of creative work. The songs are instrumental ranging from blues to rock to fusion to jazz to reggae to who knows what.
So why “Thick?” The goo that holds these songs together is joy and an expansive spirit; motion of body and mind – a thickness of rhythm and melody, simplicity and complexity. Each song thick, substantial, filling.
Why make this CD? Why do plants grow? Inner necessity is probably the best answer. life seems to make better sense when i am being creative.
The life of an artist is a spiritual one: creature, however inadequately, imitating creator. i am the caretaker, not the source. What you hear is mine only insofar as the desire to create has been given to me and i have gratefully tended it.
