She is a musician too, a singer, so she understands the life and business of making music. As a collaborator she's also an inspiration, as can be heard on her own recordings. What were the circumstances regarding the making of this? Most people were unaware, I think, of what a great trio drummer Mel was. He had a way with the brushes that I've never heard duplicated.
Anyway, I booked Rudy Van Gelder's studio, and in we went. It was a memorable experience for me all around. I was producing the date, so I had to take care of all the business as well as decide on material, arrangements, etc. I designed the cover and wrote the liner notes too.
I got Enid Farber to do the photos, which were excellent. I remember spending time with the people who made the packaging for both the LP and the Album), and I spent quite a bit of time at the LP pressing plant. I learned more about ink and vinyl types than I ever wanted to know.
Then I spent a few months shopping the tape around in hopes of getting a label to buy it. The bad news was I found only a company, Sea Breeze, who basically acted as a distributor, so I had to handle all the costs associated with the recording and production, but the good news is that I own the recording and so have complete control. I'm pleased to say the recording, with a couple of added tracks, has been leased for release as a CD in Japan.
I would be happy to release it in this country as well when the right opportunity presents itself. Dennis and Mel played beautifully, Rudy was wonderful to work with, and I remain happy with the results today. AAJ: As follow ups, what was the most difficult thing about making this recording? What was the most enjoyable? In retrospect, what did you learn from this experience that has proven to be of the most value in your career? I had gone to several record stores looking for piano trio recordings, noting the names and contact information of the record companies involved.
Most of them are by now long gone, but at the time they were the whole ball game. I then began the long process of calling, writing and sending tapes to everyone. I still have the 3x5 cards on which I kept track of my communication with the principals at the labels. It was a good Album) in the business of music including handling rejection, always a part of the life of a freelance artist.
It made my resolve stronger in the way Room To Room - Skip Heller - St. Christophers Arms (CD tempers steel, and, as I said, I sure learned a lot about the business.
Really, the best part of the whole thing was the music. It was a magical day at Rudy Van Gelder's, for me a very special place. For that reason, the music flowed well, and the result is a relaxed, musical session. And of course that's the artifact which remains. If not, what were the circumstances of your first meeting? I was living out there on Long Island's East End at the time and had been playing and informally studying with Hal.
Dennis came out for a gig and we met, after which I started calling Dennis for engagements in New York. I first played with Mel at the wedding of Joe Lovano and Judi Silvano, which was some party, by the way. Mel's groove was intoxicating, and I wanted more. Thereafter, whenever I had anything at all in the way of trio work I called Mel.
How has this affected the way you play and compose? The pastor, Reverend Frederick C. Ennette, Room To Room - Skip Heller - St. Christophers Arms (CD, Sr. When he got the church he asked me to come and help out initially while the church searched for a steady musician. It was after several weeks that it struck me that this was no longer a favor for a friend, but had become something I was looking forward to each week.
It was then that the church offered me the position, and I was honored to do it. I play for all the congregational singing as well as direct the choir. Some of what we do on any given Sunday is music from current modern gospel artists and some is from the book of the Spirituals. I arrange everything for the voices I have. It's a small choir, between eight and twelve voices, but they are strong, dedicated beautiful singers In recent years I've begun writing suites for gospel choir and jazz quartet, setting biblical text, mostly from the Psalms of David, to my own original music.
We've been doing a new suite every year around Mother's Day, and this year is no exception. Last year we were joined by members from the combined choirs of the Concord Baptist Church of Christ in Brooklyn's Bedford-Stuyvesant, bringing the number of voices to around That was an experience I'll not soon forget. By now there's a lot of music, and my larger goal is to get this music recorded.
Our yearly concerts usually also feature solo performance by the wonderful Room To Room - Skip Heller - St. Christophers Arms (CD, Yvette Glover. As I said, I've been affected greatly by my work at Devoe, spiritually as well as in my personal relationship with music itself.
I view my role as musician much more as that of a vessel now, believing that my job is to prepare myself as an instrument, ready to deliver to the audience whatever music as may come to me. I like to say that music is the voice of God. This attitude carries over to the bandstand and the recording studio as well. To feel as though I am not ultimately responsible for the inspiration of the music allows me to relax and let the music flow.
This removes much of the anxiety associated with performance, by the way. Besides my wife Jody who is one of my soloists, our seven-year-old son, Peter Luca, is there every Sunday too, and this is something which will have a warm and lasting effect on his life.
