about

Dave Parnell (produced Incarnate) plays acoustic guitar, tuned to DADGAD on Colorado Sunset and Brooklyn Sunrise. We took Dave's guitar part and added the two guitar parts (lap steel by Brett Parnell and slide guitar by Michael Cioffero) to create Brooklyn Sunrise. What we end up on Sunset is the combination of acoustic guitar, my electric guitar, Brian on organ, Chase on saxophone and Jeremy's drumming and the lap steel and slide guitar that recorded for Brooklyn Sunrise.

I've often said that A Love Supreme was the first Coltrane album I heard and it changed my life. What I haven't mentioned as often is my 2nd Coltrane record was Stellar Regions. I thought the cover was striking. Trane looking up, lit, but in darkness. That image and the music on the recording seemed so heavy and ethereal. It expressed a profound sense of sanctity and love, while also nodding to suffering and many lessons learned.

There have been many beautiful sunsets since my wife, Jessica and I moved to Colorado in 2013. My mother passed in October of 14, we had work that began, ended and we started again. For me, music is about these moments. It is a window into healing and perspective. I hear this in my favorite musicians work and it's always my intent to express that meaning in my writing, recording and playing.

This ends the set of the album, book ending the music that isn't quite a suite, but a collection of connected compositions.
