Album Description

Donut Music is an extended piece for solo guitar. This performance is by Keith Calmes and is on his CD All We Know Is Now. It is available at itunes, cdbaby, and www.keithcalmes.com. The composition is in 9 movements (or bites). The movements have varied lengths, from miniatures to developed pieces, and a diversity of roots-based musical styles including blues, Appalachian, tango, jazz, and samba. Miniature compositions have been an interest to me for many years. With Donut Music's imagery of streams of thoughts and memories, it gave me an opportunity to have several miniatures with the longer pieces. The miniatures represent random and quickly changing thoughts. Above all, this piece is meant to be fun and playful — especially, in how old and new styles are juxtaposed.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
