Art of Life Records is proud to announce our latest CD release.

The Ron Thomas Trio: Music In Three Parts AL1010-2

Ron Thomas' newest project for Art of Life Records, Music In Three Parts, was recorded on November 12, 2003 and features Paul Klinefelter on bass and Joe Mullen on drums. The pieces on Music In Three Parts are based on only three different simple musical figures. The three Impromptu's are based on a figure in D minor, the two Caprices on a figure in C major and the final Epilog on a figure in A flat major. The primary goal of Music In Three Parts is to achieve highly independent piano, bass and percussion parts (Polyphony) and complex ornamental (Melodic) expansions upon the simple thematic materials on which the improvisations are strictly based. 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!
