For this album, I chose to use the aesthetic ideas suggested by classic Victorian era English rhyme to curate all the aspects of the production process. I also specifically selected musicians who are “old” familiar faces: Art Hirahara, Boris Kozlov, and Rudy Royston. There are some “new” friends as well: Alexa Tarantino, Nick Finzer, and Sam Dillon. The carefully selected musical program features some borrowed compositions taken from earlier Posi-Tone releases, which were subsequently produced to create performances reminiscent of the mid-1960’s, the “blue” period of modern jazz. I sincerely hope everyone will experience as much “Maximum Enjoyment" listening to these musical offerings as I did producing them. - Marc Free, producer
