Ron Thomas Trio-"Doloroso" Art of Life Records AL1021-2 CD

Now available for ordering via our web site's secure server!!

Following in the footsteps of their previous Art of Life Records release, Music In Three Parts (AL1010-2), Doloroso was recorded in May of 2005 and features Tony Marino on bass and Joe Mullen on drums.

The concept utilized throughout Doloroso is based upon improvising freely (no specific chords and measures) within the loose framework of a pre-determined genre-piece such as a “ballad", “Latin piece in three", “Jazz-like swing piece", “Latin piece in four," “meterless piece" etc. This is the difference between Ron's previous work for Art of Life Records, Music In Three Parts, which was based on three chordal-rhythmic ostinato patterns. The two projects are similar in that for both Music In Three Parts and Doloroso, strictly executed specific formal limitation provides and opens the way for very intense and uninhibited expressive free improvising. The strategies used for both of these recordings releases them from “playing form" as they normally do on songs, standards and composed Jazz pieces. All tracks have been professionally mastered using 24-bit digital technology.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
