Album Description

This album (reviewed in All About Jazz in 2004) contains self-produced compositions by the pianist. The Russell Arthur Roberts remarks on the back actually concern the first album that Lockwood released, called "Rite of Passage", but the same is true here. "His musical intellect and sense for drama........ combined into an appealing set of songs that suggest perhaps as much classically influenced 20th century art music as jazz." My wish here was to try to expand the bebop language to include a new approach to tonality/atonality that implies use of the jazz improvisers ear with singable melodies and a bi-tonal compositional approach.

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
