A Kiwi Bites the Apple
I first met Ron and Adam in the early 80's when they toured N.Z. with the Dave Liebman group. Then later I recorded and toured with Ron and Brazilian trumpeter Claudio Roditi for N.Z. Jazz group "Space Case".
Actually, I knew Ron's music well from records with Mike Nock's "Fourth Way" and Charles Lloyd with Keith Jarrett in the late 60's. More recently he's been with Dave Leibman and Richie Bierach. Adam has been with John Schofield and Mike Brecker - heavy company.
When I decided to take the big trip to New York, it seemed like a good idea to make a record and Ron was the natural person to contact. We had a two hour rehearsal my second day there and then visited the studio. There was Eddie Henderson, Victor Lewis and Cecil McCee so I knew I had come to the right place. The next day we recorded 10 originals in 8 hours.
Ther rest of the trip was a Jazz fan's Nirvana as , with my wife and N.Y. Navigator Edwina Thorn, we made a continual tour of New York clubs meeting and hearing so many musicians who I have been listening to and reading about for thirty years from the other side of the world.
My sincere thanks to Ron McClure and Adam Nussbaum for their extramusical interpretations and contributions to my compositions and to Jim Anderson for his engineering.
