Thanks Marty, today we’re going to hear one of my compositions recorded at HairyLarryLand.
NJHB is the house band for the New Jazz In Jonesboro concert series. We were starting up the concerts again in the fall of 2018 and I had written a number of songs titled after concepts of contemporary physics.
So on July 28, 2018, we got together to read and record three of these pieces, “Cold Fusion”, “Quantum Blues”, and “Entanglement”. These songs make up the NJHB, “Quantum Blues” album.
We had Tyler Remagen on tenor sax; Spencer Rawlins, bass, and I’m on piano. We all live in the Jonesboro area and we were all students in the ASU jazz program at the time.
I was looking for album artwork and the circular images of particle accelerators attracted my attention. Kind of a physics mandala.
I found art quilts by Kate Findlay in her Hadron Collider Series and I loved the one called Atomic. I contacted Kate and got her permission to use her photograph of the quilt on the album. I will include a link to the quilt and the album cover art on the Something Blue website at sbblues.com.
Ok now, here’s NJHB playing my song, “Cold Fusion”, recorded at HairyLarryLand on July 28, 2018.
