Album Description

William Chernoff's debut album Aim to Stay pays homage to the people, places, and experiences that helped to shape him as a young man and musician. With the album’s title track, Chernoff challenged himself to create a song with few improvised elements, and one where “the melody is more like a vocal melody than a jazz melody.” Several tunes on Aim to Stay, including “Stop Me if You’ve Heard Enough,” take inspiration from American guitarist Bill Frisell. When asked why Frisell was so important to him as a young jazz musician, Chernoff notes that Frisell “had a persona that was so different from other jazz musicians [...] He crossed over a lot into country or folk music. He was doing all that within his own take on jazz and was still part of the jazz tradition. He was kind of perfect in that way.”
