"I currently live near the college town of Bozeman MT, and a few years ago I met Alan Fauque Jazz saxophonist, Mike Gillan percussionist and pianist Bob Britten. I started using them in my sessions, we recorded a whole bunch of jazz tunes that are with various Publishers out there. That's when I got the "Earnest Songbook" idea. I dedicated a whole year to just writing Jazz tunes with vocals, I tried to see how far i could take it. The first of these I wrote was "Velvet Afternoon" I said to myself "This feels a little different and I tried to stay in the feel" The CD has a "Cocktail" feel 'Warning you are entering the "Frank" Zone', dress good and don't screw up, keep your composure. My favorite tune on the songbook is "Let's Give It a Whirl" where I stumbled upon using different vocal styles conjuring up "Dino", Satchmo, and "Frank" of course set in Vegas, "roll the dice and watch em curl", that was my writing approach, roll the dice and see what happens. Rather than "writing, I think I'm a guy who likes to put together changes that are fun to play against and sing. Also I included a "Tom Waits" style song, me and Alan came up with this odd tune I call it "Guy Noir Music" after Garrison Keilors radio character, I thought what the hell Diana Krall did "Temptation" so I'll include "Mickey the Fin" its in the same vain, "Who's that in the alley, looking so cool"......
Composing Jazz is usually done on piano, so I had to think piano in my head and try to play it accordingly. I usually don't like "guitar" jazz as it makes me think of the Weather Channel or being on hold on the phone. That being said, I still do love Wes, Joe Pass and all that, but I was trying to be the Composer - Vocalist - Arranger, so I let Alan and Bob Britten do most of the solo work." There's 3 instrumentals on the CD too, Alan gets to strut his stuff on the drifting "Zen Garden" showing off his Alto Chops, along with Denny's old Bassist from Cleveland Bill Watson, "Upright Piano Jazz" features Bob Britten on the upright Piano again with Bill on Bass, and the cool "Black Eyed Susan" a smoky textured tune with all the above and Denny on the Upright Bass., Denny and his band can be found playing in clubs and getting people on the a crowded dance floor with, a combination of Roots Jazz, Swing, Blues.
