"Why does Ann Rabson, a musician with a successful career and a group she loves, want to do a solo album?" Ann would answer, "I've wanted to do a solo album for many years. Lately, I guess I've been feeling my own mortality, and I find myself cussing folks like Jimmy Yancey and Big Maceo Merriweather for not leaving more recordings. Not that I'm in their league, but someone might want to hear me after I'm gone. Also, I've had some encouragement, well, nagging by fans.
"This album allowed me to focus on my vision for the music, and experiment with textures, styles and instrumentation. Plus, I got an opportunity to play with other musicians who bring their own talents to the music," Rabson pointed out.
Listen here with open ears and an open heart. Let the music soothe you like a warm, fragrant bath. Absorb the passionate rhythms, pounding piano and soaring violin, the guitar work that stings and swings, the confidence and fervor in Ann's voice. Let her be your music makin' mama.
