Liner Notes

Whenever a Jazz pianist plays a standard there are some unique challenges: how to make the tune his or her own without changing it for the sake of changing it or transforming it beyond recognition. A second challenge is: to find something worth saying within the confines of a popular song and put a fresh imprint on it. The listener is the final judge whether or not the challenges have been met. This recording uses many altered chords which is a part of my musical vocabulary in writing original music or reharmonizing standards.
