Product Notes

DRAGONFLY This collection of songs was conceptualized and mostly recorded while I was living in Korea during 2006. I was doing a lot of grass roots touring with my fusion trio, EN2 before I became an expatriot. I got burnt out from the road and found that writing and recording gives me a greater sense of satisfaction than most things. Taking time off and living in Asia helped me to really step away from things and dig in to the songwriting aspect a little more. The title track, 'Dragonfly', is about someone I met while living in a small city east of Seoul, called Chun-cheon. I got the idea when I went to a Korean folk village in Su-won and saw a dragonfly exhibit. They were all preserved in a glass case and I had no idea that the wings could be so colorful, nor did I realize the variety that exists within that family of insect. My background is in classical guitar, jazz, rock, and experimental music. I try to cover all the bases on guitar while focusing on music that deals with expression, first and foremost. I earned my Master of Music in Jazz and Contemporary Improvisation at the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor in 2002, before moving to Jamaica to teach for a year at Northern Caribbean University. I'm looking forward to doing a lot more recording in the future. I'll be living in Los Angeles for the next few years working on my Doctorate in Studio/Jazz Guitar at the University of Southern California. Please feel free to contact me and let me know what you think of the new album. Robert.
