THE REPERTOIRE

The sheet music Nolan readied for the new album features original compositions and arrangements, which emphasize the more subtle and lyrical nature of trumpet playing.

«The mood I want to set with this album certainly has its roots in my involvement with the music of Jazz coryphaei both past and living. On the other hand, having composed new music and arranged some beautiful tunes, I'm able to pick up my own discourse and take it to the next level.»

AUDIO ENGINEERING

Drawing inspiration from phonograph records, Nolan sat down with audio engineer Chris Diggelmann to outline the techniques and aesthetics of the recording.

«I came up with a challenge on how to make this album sound—not just from the musician's standpoint. For example, the decision to release a monaural recording with no edits speaks for an unusually holistic approach. What the listener hears on this album is by all means genuine and hopefully conveys the spontaneous creativity of those very moments.»
