1 « Hayden » Is a solo piano piece which captures the moment of the birth of my second son.

2 « Kananaskis » I grew up in Calgary Alberta and there really is a great provincial park about an hour and half away called the Kananaskis. This access to the Rocky Mountains and its surroundings is one of the things I miss the most about Alberta. This tune reminds me of that visual experience: large white mountain peaks, vivid green and blue lakes and tall pine trees. – Dave Watts

3 « Seoul Station » This describes the intensity of riding the subway in Seoul. Some of the trains that begin in chaotic stations packed with passengers, when they actually leave the city they weave a lyrical voyage with beautiful views along the sea.

4 « Attachment » A pièce that evokes the complex feelings we have for those who are close to us.

5 « God Only Knows » The arrangement is mine, but the vibe comes from a great Seamus Blake record from the ‘90’s.

6  « Separation » A piece that evokes the complex feelings we have for those relationships we have lost.

7 « U.M.M.G » This is a tune by the great composer Billy Strayhorn which I revisited this year during my lessons with Fred Hearsch. In 7/4 time it became a great blowing vehicle for Frank whose playing in odd meters I’ve always really loved.

8 « Gatineau » I grew up in Ottawa and frequented this national parc just outside of Hull across the river from the city. There are some tiny little bumpy hills that we used to ski down twice a week at Camp Fortune. The night skiing was beautiful just after a poutine or two.

9 « The Feeling of Jazz » Penned by one of my favorite composers Duke Ellington. His music is always such a natural choice for jazz musicians because of his melodicism, connection to the blues, and use of space.
