Album Description

Life’s A Movie - Commissioned by Howard Horn and Frank Osborne for The Inventions Trio Composed and arranged by Bill Mays Life’s a Movie is the third CD by the Inventions Trio and once again exhibits Bill Mays’ marvelous writing skills. Bill has composed another extended work along with arrangements of standard fare, both jazz and classical. The new extended suite is titled Life’s a Movie, but is subtitled Four Themes In Search Of A Movie. The other pieces include combining the Concierto de Aranjuez with Chick Corea’s Spain, Homage To Bill Evans, which includes four of his classics, and Monk Tribute, comprising three of his compositions. As Doug Ramsey states in his notes, “Nearly a decade into their musical life together, Bill Mays, Marvin Stamm, and Alisa Horn are having more fun than ever.” That about says it all!

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
