Fiona's Comments

Song doesn't lift off so much as begin soaring overhead with the first note. Keeps a nice languid pace up til the end when it starts gaining momentum to the finish line. Absolutely beautiful. Jazz from the Denver, CO scene.

About the Album

"Aachen" Composed and Arranged by Tyler Gilmore. Featuring Cuong Vu on Trumpet and Greg Harris on Vibraphone.

"Aachen" was inspired by a Jewish religious service broadcast during WWII to celebrate the Allied invasion of German borders. The original radio recording features Max Fuchs, a young infantryman and cantor, and the sound of nearby artillery fire. The melody is based on Mr. Fuchs performance of the hymn Yigdal.
