Dance in the Clouds - for Dance Routines - by Doug Gurwell    

from the CD insert....

New Taste Jazz is a concept of incorporating various rhythms, harmonies, and melodic ideas from various genres, eras, different regions of the world, or completely original ideas, in order to keep the music moving forward and interesting.  Jazz has been a very innovative forum at many times in the past, so why not return to that spirit, especially if it has the effect of drawing a wider audience.

Dance in the Clouds is a project that was conceived with the dance community in mind.  Hopefully they will embrace this music for use in expressive movement.  Of course, it's just great for those who enjoy listening to good music.

Mizuho Rain is a big thanks to the enthusiastic people in and around the city of Mizuho, west Tokyo, Japan, who supported me when I performed there in the summer of 2010.  It was written there, inspired by my experiences & beauty of the area.  Domo Arigato!

Kanashimi was written to express the sadness I felt after viewing the devastating effects of the earthquake and tsunami on the Tohoku Region of Japan.
