Album Description

We recorded Group Therapy in one day, following the model of many of our favorite records from the past. This project celebrates several gifts we often take for granted: spontaneous collective improvisation; harmony in discord; the moment. It's a pleasure to hear musicians of this caliber interpret my compositions: every time we play, the possibilities multiply. After our first rehearsal, I had to reassess many of my assumptions – an inevitable part of a healthy creative process, and a sign that I had called the right players. By the time we hit the studio, we were a band. Group Therapy includes 8 new original compositions, a new take on Charlie Chaplin's "Smile," and a version of "Downtown" featuring Tony Moreno that's decidedly more downtown New York than the original. If you're a fan of any of the individual members of this band, this CD will become an indispensable part of your collection. If this is the first time you've heard these guys, this could be the beginning of a beautiful thing!

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.
