Sometimes Things Work Out on CD

This CD was literally years in the making. I'd been thinking about making a CD of my original compositions since 2000, but I could never quite find the right time, the right musicians, or a good unifying theme for such a project. In 2004, I started playing bass regularly at local jazz jam sessions, and met a group of wonderfully talented players. Then in 2006, I had the incredible good fortune to meet Dawn Blair, a very talented cellist from my home state of Kansas. Now I knew who I wanted on the CD, and what material I wanted to include. The title track Sometimes Things Work Out is a song I wrote several years ago, when I was contemplating how life sometimes allows things work out for the best. Dawn came to Portland in 2007 for the first recording sessions for this album, and later we did a few overdubs at my friend Tom Ptacek's studio in Kansas City. I think you'll agree that her cello work elevates the whole project. The other musicians on the album are highly talented musicians whom I have played with many times at jam sessions. These cats can take a very sketchy leadsheet and turn it into a polished performance on the spot. Sometimes, they took my tunes in a very different direction than I had imagined, but it was always to an even better place. Featured on this CD are: Milledge Bennett - Percussion Dawn Blair - Cello Christian Botto - Guitar Ted Clifford - Keyboards Jack McCreary - Alto sax and Flute Michael Kora - Drums Steve Pinkston - Bass and Guitar.
