Key Lime

By: Tim Carman Trio


Controlled Composition: AFA Publishing, Hancok Music, EMI Longitude Music, Son Rol Music Company, Rudy Stevenson Music

Musical Style: Organ Trio, 60's Soul Jazz, Jazz trio, Jazz, Post-bop, Hard bop, Straight-ahead jazz, Jazz Ballads, Latin Jazz, Jazz Standards

Musical Influences: Jimmy Smith, Freddie Roach, Grant Green, 60's Soul Jazz, Booker Ervin, Roy Haynes, Wynton Kelly, Wes Mongomery, Kenny Burrell, Sonny Rollins, Bud Powell 

Artist Statement: Inspired by and dedicated to Bob Gullotti, Tim's first drum teacher and mentor. Bob passed away suddenly in 2020. The song was written in the studio and recorded in one take by Tim Carman, Steve Fell, and Ken Clark. Along with Bob's spirit, Jimmy Smith inspired the feel and soul of this track. , The death of my teacher Bob Gullotti and the cancellation of gigs due to Covid led to a deep inward dive. I began reexamine some of my favorite recordings from my high school days. One of the first jazz album's I fell in love with was "Cracklin,'" by Booker Ervin and Roy Haynes, which Bob Gullotti gave to me when I was a junior in high school. I spent a lot of time listening to and playing along with this album. This particular recording means a lot to me and transports me back to my early days on the drums. I've also never heard anyone play or record this tune and thought it would be a good and meaningful addition to my album. I'm still in awe of Haynes' playing on the original recording. , Wynton Kelly performs this song on his album "It's All Right!", which has been a recent favorite of mine. It's a ballad rarely covered and the transition from a ballad feel into a 6/8 latin feel is really unique and beautiful. Jimmy Cobb played on this album and also passed away last year. He's one of my favorite drummers of all time and I love his playing on the original version of this track. I'm really excited with how our version came out. , I was inspired to include this standard for two reasons. Firstly, it's one of my favorite standards and a great tune to start off with in the studio. This record was recorded in one day and the three of us had never played together before. So I thought Sonnymoon For Two would be a great warmup. Secondly, I watched a live Jimmy Smith concert from the 60s on youtube and he did a version of this tune. I absolutely loved it in the organ jazz setting and was inspired to include it on the album. Finally, my rubato drum intro and solo was inspired by drummers I look up to like Roy Haynes, Art Blakey, and Philly Joe Jones. , "Buster Rides Again" was one of the first tunes I learned when I started studying jazz in high school. After the death of my first drum teacher Bob Gullotti, I spent a lot of time reminiscing about my early years studying music. This recording really stuck with me. I combined this tune with a latin groove inspired by Art Blakey, who I've spent a lot of time listening to during quarantine. I didn't know if the combination of the tune and feel would work until we tried it in the studio. We did one take and that ended being the take we used for the album. Dave Brophy played percussion on this version of the tune. , I recorded this track at the very end of our session. Some of my favorite jazz albums by artists like Art Blakey have great drum interludes. The groove I played was definitely inspired by Vernel Fournier's playing on Ahmad Jamal's version of the song "Poinciana." I love this feel and was inspired to improvise within it. During quarantine I spent a lot of time playing grooves like this alone in my studio. I think this interlude really captures my year of playing music in quarantine. , Driftin' is one of my favorite Herbie Hancock songs. It's a fantastic feel and melody and is so fun to play. We thought it'd be a great addition to the album. , Ken Clark wrote this track while lying awake in bed. It's inspired by sleep deprivation and how it can aid in creativity. The song is also a contrafact of "Joy Spring" by Clifford Brown with Max Roach.

Alone

By: Object Heavy


Musical Style: Soul/R&B/Funk, 70's Soul Rock, Funk, Soul

Musical Influences: The Meters, Muscle Shoals, Funkadelic, Stevie Wonder, Anderson .Paak, Living Colour, Lenny Kravitz

Musical Inspiration: Inspired by 70's funk and hard hitting soul-rock, but with a modern flare. We wanted to create song with a hard driving verse section, but a chorus with bright and vibrant harmony.

Lyrical Inspiration: We wanted to do a play on the classic guy meets girl story line in the verses, but then broaden out to more macro themes of love, unity, and togetherness for the bridge and hook. Written before COVID, we wanted to preach the idea that even though so many things in our modern world keep us apart, we don't need to be alone. The message of the song resonated especially after the lockdown and separation we all experienced in 2020. 

Artist Statement: 'Alone' showcases a hard hitting fast paced funk groove contrasted with more harmonically deep and colorful refrains. With this song we wanted to preach the idea that even though so many things in our modern world keep us apart, we don't need to be alone. The message of the song resonated especially after the lockdown and separation we all experienced in 2020.
