Admit OneJim Gailloreto
This is a piece I originally wrote for a group called the Marcel Du Champ Memorial Players.
During this time I was enchanted by the sounds of music boxes. I would take them apart,
alter the keyboards and change to result of the song.
Giant StepsJohn Coltrane
This composition uses many excerpt from John Coltraneís solo from the 1959 recording on
the Atlantic label. The upper three strings are set with the task of starting this piece with a
three part harmonization of Traneís first chorus.
Well You NeednítThelonious Monk
Recorded live at the Cultural Center in Chicago. Monk is one of my favorite composers, his music lends itself to a most creative and wild interpretation.
Universal SoulJim Gailloreto
It is truly a pleasure to work with an incredible artist such as Kurt Elling. His talent and passion brings beauty to every measure. Universal Soul is an original prayer song with lyrics from a poem by Jalaluddin Rumi. The poem is from the collection Bird Songs.
The music is a prayer song. Listen for the Ohm of meditaion placed throughout the piece.
