Product Notes

(??????????) The Shawn Graham Quintet is composed of five first-class Los Angeles area musicians. This collection of songs is the result of a recording session held in February 2007. Although many months of preparation and years of inspiration went into this project, the recording was done in one day without rehearsal in order to capture the sound of spontaneous creation. The original tunes are the results of two writers: Jack Ollodort (drums) and Shawn Graham (bass). In addition to the eight original tunes, two classic standards are included. The title "Redefining The Standards" was selected because the tunes were recorded in a straight-ahead style true to the tradition of standard jazz. Yet each tune contains some element of redefinition, be that a fresh approach to a standard tune or a new tune. The first song, "75", is short and sweet. It gets to the point quickly yet covers a lot of ground musically in less than three minutes. 'I wrote "75" about 10 years ago and I really don't remember what the significance is or where it came from,' explains Ollodort. According to Graham, "The melody for "Rhythm of Glissard Assemble" was inspired by the kindness of a friend. The title was chosen by my ballet dancing wife. When I asked her what the song sounded like to her she said it sounds like the rhythm of glissard assemble and danced this ballet step to the song." The CDs up-tempo rendition of the Miles Davis classic, "Boplicity", features the melody played in unison by bass and saxophone. Trumpet joins for the "B" section. Solos are by sax and piano. Easy Street is a funky blues with a light, uplifting melody. Sax, piano and bass solos propel this tune forward. Morning March is an easy-going, West Coast styled tune featuring solos by trumpet, piano and bass. According to Ollodort,"Played Out" was inspired by working with Buddy Collette. His personality is such that I was inspired to take pen to paper." He adds, "The title was just cranked out.' For 'Bluesette', the bass takes center stage playing the melody arco on this haunting and melancholic melody. 'Bathsheba' is a driving, fast tempo tune. The title was chosen because the song has a middle eastern flavor.
