Album Description

This collection of compositions/performances is a blend of melody, fire, water, groove, mutual exploration and beauty which I hope will uplift you the listener as much as creating it has uplifted me." Richard Shulman This is the 4th album of original music from The Richard Shulman Group (additional original jazz albums include "Solo Flight" - solo piano; and "Sky Jazz" with the Richard Shulman Trio). 1. Atmosphere - a haunting mood piece exploring the movement from minor to major. 2. I Claim my Day - A musical reflection of creative thought. 3. In Between the Blue and Green - The only straight - ahead, post bop tune on the album, this song languished in my 1983 notebook for years because I thought it was too similar to Bill Evans' "Blue in Green." I rediscovered it a few years ago, realized that it is its own song, and finished it. 4. The Gifts You Gave to Me - A ballad with rich images moving from regret to thankfulness. 5. For Mom - Written for Mother’s Day. 6. No Matter What They Say - I like sweet music…. 7. Homage to Pharoah - When I first heard Pharaoh Sanders’ “The Creator has a Master Plan” I was moved by the spiritual potency of this musical prayer. “Homage to Phaoah” reflects my gratitude for this devotion. 8. It’s All Inside - Another musical prayer. 9. Finding Peace - May we all find peace within ourselves and in our world. 10. Buried Diamond - another half-written piece from my 1983 notebook. When I found it a few years ago it just needed a bridge and it was fun to write. 11. Turned into Lemonade - When Life gives you lemons turn them into Lemonade! 12. Sunny Samba - A happy, fun song….. 13. Write Again - A jazz samba with joy and passion. 14. Nostalgia - A duet with Jacob and me…. A beautiful slow waltz to end the album.
