Shadowland These songs are very close to my heart. I wrote many of them during my mother's dying process and so consequently they have both a celebratory and poignantly introspective feel. I went back to my roots and based the arrangements around the traditional jazz piano trio sound featuring electric bass wizard Kai Eckhardt and two different drummers, Bob Blankenship and Sean Rickman. The vocal group SoVoSo accompanies me on the title track and Bryan Dyer and Rose Chapman also contribute their soulful singing on some of the pieces. From the jubilant yet precarious opening, "Living of the Edge" to the pensive "Love", "Requiem of the Bees" and "Let Me Go", from the darkness of "Underworld" and "Shadowland" to the triumphant "Find a Lover" and "Home Again" this album is a bittersweet journey into love, sex and death.
